Citizens United and this election.
3 years and over a billion dollars later, and we still have almost the exact same government as we did before. Will the left drop the myth that the SCOTUS decision means that corporations will be able to "buy" elections? Money from special interest groups had very little to do with influencing voters this election. The only money that really had an impact, was money from the treasury that went to bailout union auto-makers in Ohio and Michigan. That money either came from taxes collected from the 53% that still pay them, or was borrowed from countries such as China. That money surely helped "buy" votes for Obama.
