Super-Duper PAC is Super-Duper Scary

(Corporations are bad, mmmkay? More on this after a word from our sponsors.)

As you probably know, US corporations and other organizations can donate unlimited sums of cash in support of their political agendas, thanks to the Citizens United decision of 2010.

Now, as described above by Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks, a new motion is in place to allow a ‘Super-Duper PAC’, which can raise unlimited outside money a la Citizens United, only with politicians doing the fundraising themselves.

If this decision passes, which is quite likely considering how far gone the US already is, then Americans will be one step closer to having a political system where corporations and special interests can directly purchase politicians with their unlimited purse-strings.

Chilling.
