10/10 Ian Millhiser: Citizens United Part 2?

October 10, 2013

Ian Millhiser of the Center For American Progress  explained why the McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission case could destroy what little remains of real campaign finance reform, what plutocrats want to give unlimited money into political campaigns, what is the distinction between Super PAC funding rules and money laundering, how money laundering schemes work in campaign finance, why looking at corruption narrowly is a problem and why Chief Justice Roberts is the Justice to watch in this case.

On The Better Half: Fox News bashes people on disability insurance and NPR and 60 Minutes lie about disability fraud, students dies in PA because of school budget cuts, how the Koch Brothers corrupt government and society and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
