We await a decision on McCutcheon v. FEC

Leave a comment

“As we await a decision from the Supreme Court in the McCutcheon v. FEC money in politics case, the Justices themselves heard from a protester who rose in the courtroom to proclaim that “money is not speech, corporations are not people” and to urge the Court to “overturn Citizens United.”

That this breach was so surprising reminds us how cut-off the Supreme Court is from the life of the country.”

Hope to see you at the Forum Planning meeting tonight (2/18/14) at 7pm at the Msla Public Library Boardroom (near the front of the building on Main St).
 
We hope that we can join with other nonpartisan groups and put together an exciting forum.  Several of the groups are interested in election issues such as the initiatives.
 
Missoula Moves to Amend will be looking at what we can do now to decrease the role of money in politics while we work toward the Constitutional Amendment.

“These are staggering sums of money to be spending to influence our elections. The fact that they’re being spent undercover, without disclosure of the true sources, is even more staggering.”
