Debate on Campaign Finance — McCutcheon v. Federal Elections Commission 04/29/14


The Supreme Court's decision in McCutcheon v. Federal Elections Commission earlier this year altered the landscape for campaign finance regulations and expanded upon the Court's previous decision in Citizens United.

In this video, Emmet Bondurant and Doug Chalmers debate whether McCutcheon was correctly decided and whether the long-term impact of the decision represents a positive expansion of free speech rights under the First Amendment or the end of meaningful limitations on money in politics.

The panelists also debated whether campaign finance reform is effectively dead and what this decision means for federal elections and the democratic process going forward.
