On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme court took another step in the long - and many say misguided - journey to granting corporations personhood under the U.S. Constitution. In Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, a five-member majority of the court increased the ability of corporations to use their wealth to influence our electoral process. Recent polling shows that more than 75 percent of Americans think the ruling further weakens our democratic institutions and the power of people to govern themselves.

Under the guise of enforcing the free speech rights of the First Amendment,  the Supreme Court has reversed decades of campaign finance reform.  In a clearly partisan move, a majority of five justices has allowed corporations to spend unlimited cash on political advertising.  What can the 80% of Americans at odds with this decision do about it?  Jon Bartholomew of the Oregon State Public Interest Research Group (OSPIRG) outlines some of the actions that could restore power to we the people!

Corporate personhood and the campaign to legalize democracy

Air date: 
Tue, 02/23/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Americans don't torture. No, they call it something else. And then they get away with it.

A deeply disappointing Department of Justice report reduces the war crimes of the Bush administration to an error of legal judgment. Sorry about the torture! Shouldn't have listened to those damn lawyers. With Joe out on vacation, Abe looks at a Bizarro World in which torturers and mass murderers enjoy lives of retired luxury in between speaking gigs and Sunday talkshow appearances. Oh wait -- it's our world.
