Supreme Court refuses to reconsider campaign finance controversy

(CNN) - The Supreme Court refused Monday to reconsider one of its most controversial decisions of recent years, which has had a dramatic effect on election campaigns.

In a 5-4 ruling, with the more liberal justices dissenting, the high court refused to hear arguments over whether a state can limit campaign spending by corporations.

    Don't expect these Justices to ever change this ruling, they're in too deep.

    I meant to say this decision was as wrong as the decision in Plessy vs Fergurson.....which upheld Separate but Equal

    Time for an Arab Spring here in America! It no longer matters what the people want. It no longer matters who we vote for. Our government is run by the best leaders money can buy. LEAVE NO INCUMBENT IN OFFICE!
