The future of the American political landscape just changed dramatically. If you thought it was impossible to be elected without millions of dollars, the Supreme Court just upped the ante. Future candidates for President of the United States will need billions instead of millions to run a successful campaign. We can count on the corporations to put their money behind the candidate that supports deregulation, is anti- union, will vote against increased wages, and who is a climate change denier.
The good news (if there is any) is that labor unions are also no longer limited in campaign spending. This ruling is the beginning of the end of campaign finance reform. If you thought corporations were screwing the people before, you ain't seen nothing yet.
