Supreme Court overturns unconstitutional restrictions on corporations and labor unions



News coverage here.
Laws had been enacted which limited corporation and union spending on election campaigns. However, such spending is part of the right to free speech, and so is protected by the Constitution. In recent years, corporations are mostly thought to support Republican policies, so they are thought to benefit from the decision.

prompting the White House to pledge "forceful" action to undercut the decision.
Wait a minute! Obama's oath of office requires him to uphold the Constitution. He is not supposed to undercut it.:(:(:(

In Obama's weekly radio address, he also spoke against this Constituional right. But, he didn't have any legal basis to do so. He just doesn't like it.

You only believe in letting Americans have rights - don't expect any sympathy here.

That is simply not true. Wherever would you get such a false notion?
