Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Supreme Court Ruling on McCutcheon vs FEC

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–April 2, 2014.

The Supreme Court made one of the most undemocratic and corrosive decisions in history with the Citizen’s United ruling. Today, it has dangerously broadened its skewed view of money in politics.

By striking down individual aggregate limits on First Amendment grounds, the Court has further tilted our political system in favor of corporations and the wealthy and against working people. Our founding fathers did not intend for our electoral process to be the façade for political auctions.

We need fundamental reform to get our democracy back on track. The average, ordinary American should have as strong a voice as the Koch Brothers do in politics.
