    Great job SCOTUS !! and to also refuse to review the impact of unrestricgted cash flow to supoer PAC's as an expression of one's 1st Amendment rights shows that the SCOUTS is right leaning. What about foreign influence?
    Even Joe the Plumber could have figured out what the ruling would have resulted in..

    It's a shame if the country can be put for sale to the Corporation who has the most money. Thats the peoblem with whats happened to the collapsed economy to begin with.Money is NOT the answer to anything ,other than Control & Power.The Wallstreet corps and the wealthest people seem to think if they support someone who will protect them from having to pay their fair share of Taxes to help the country get out of the mess they actually got us into this mess is their distorted way of buying the power to do so.They are self-consumed and full of greed.Thats why they do not like P.Obama.What a shame if that comes to pass.Nobody has a problem with people getting rich and living above the standard of greatness, People have a problem with thoese people not wanting to help and share financially to stableize and grow the economy for everyone.They think the working class & the middle calls and the poor should be the only ones to fight their wars and come home and pay the bill for it too.This is not acceptable and the people will NOT accept it come November when election day is here.

    Why does the headline say "Top super PAC donors" then go on to mention that there are 9 but only focus on Sheldon Adelson ???? Is it maybe because he supported Gingrich and now Romney and that the media has been parroting the liberal Democrat mantra of "The evil super PAC money" ????

    I'll be waiting to read the following 8 instalments of the other super PAC donors from Staff Writer Charles Riley especially the ones supporting Democrats.

    These PAC are not only raising money but trouble for our political system. It will soon become only the wealthy will be able to run for office and vote. This huge fund raising money will be a part of the downfall of our country. There are other problems that relate to politics as well.

    These people who blame Obama kill me, you have 20 to 30 years of bad policy. The same players get elected every year, target 7 and 8 term congressmen. Thanks to the supreme court and it's citizens united ruling special interest will run this country. The NRA is bullying congress, Grover nor quits and his stupid pledge, jeez these guys are not good policy makers a machine could do what they do. If you want to blame the president fine but use common sense why does the GOP want credit for defense ? They want credit for past policies when it benefits them but want you to use an expiration date when it does not,. Bad policy does not have an expiration date, neither does a one sided supreme court. The mess were in is due to elections past don't blame the guy trying to fix it

    Th top eight (of nine) are Republican, right-wing, fat-cats. It's easy to see which political party represents the ultra-rich and which one represents the working people of America.

    Note that CNN only listed the Republicans who donated their own money, not the corrupt unions who take the money of the members and give it to liberal democrats whether the member wants it to go there or not. Liberally biased media see nothing wrong here.
