    "This Blithering Maoist Idiot Is Unbelievable,He Thinks They Rule America !"

    The Supreme Court's ruling Thursday striking down limits on corporate and union spending in elections is "un-American," Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Thursday.

    Schumer, a top Senate Democrat who formerly ran their campaign committee, said he would hold hearings on the decision in the coming weeks.

    "I think it's an un-American decision," Schumer said at a press conference Thursday. "I think when the American people understand what this radical decision has meant they will be even more furious and concerned about special interest influence in politics than they are today."

    Democrats have responded quickly to rebuke the court's 5-4 ruling in the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission case, handed down Wednesday. The decision essentially kills a sizable portion of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, better known as the McCain-Feingold Act for its high-profile sponsors.

    The law, until this ruling, had subject corporations to special spending limits and disclosure rules that did not apply to individuals.

    Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), the sponsor of that 2002 law, has called for new legislation to address the court's ruling. Schumer said Thursday he'd hold hearings as chairman of the Senate Rules Committee.

    Schumer should retire before he gets fired.

    The Democrats have their bowels in an uproar because the SC ruling levels the playing for campaign contributions and this schmuck does not like equality. Corporations will be on the same footing now with Unions and Trial Lawyers. Boo Hoo

    Do you realize that if candidates were restricted to public campaign funds then it would level the playing field not only between all corporations, and unions, and trial lawyers, but also with regular people too?

    How on earth can people who claim to be on the side of "the people" not support this?
