In this week’s Supreme Court ruling on McCutcheon vs FEC, we saw what many are denouncing as “the end of democracy in America” and “Citizens United on steroids” – it certainly looks bad, but what exactly happened, and what are the most likely repercussions? I’m brushed up on the issue, but I cannot match the years of campaign finance expertise of Mike McCabe, of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. He’ll join us to give us a clear view of it all.
Then, as if that wasn’t enough electoral bad news, I’m going to go over a very strange fact: you do not have a Constitutional right to vote in America. If you think that sounds insane, you’re not alone: Congressman Mark Pocan has proposed a Constitutional amendment to explicitly define that right to vote for all. But just in case you think he and I are completely off-base, we’ll review exactly why we make this outrageous claim.
