Citizens United – The Minimal Impact Argument
Matt Bai of New York Times Magazine gives a spirited defense of the Citizens United decision. He begins by telling readers what he thinks the decision says and why, in his opinion, the decision has had only the most minimal impact on political fund raising and spending in 2012.
Personally I disagree with Bai’s take, both as to his interpretation of what the holding of the case really is and his interpretation of its impact on this election cycle. But, while I disagree with his take, the presentation is literate, intelligent and thought provoking. To the extent people want to know both sides of an issue, it’s worth a look. Take a read and see what you think.
