McCutcheon v. FEC

McCutcheon v. FEC


On April 2, the majority on the Roberts Court continued its drive to give Americans a government of, by and for big money.

The Supreme Court voted 5-4 to side with the plaintiff in McCutcheon v. FEC and overturned aggregate contribution limits, clearing the way for a single individual to spend as much as $3.6 million on a single election -- enough to buy the attention of the President and every single member of Congress.

The decision adds to a string of rulings that have enabled a few wealthy superdonors to buy as much influence as they can afford -- shutting the rest of us out in the process.
