Unintented consquences: Economic Benefits of "Citizens United"

4 posts / 0 new

Does anybody but me think that one of the dumbist Supreme Court decisions might be stimulating the economy?

The millions or billions of dollars are being funneled into the domestic economy stimulating it!

Not really though. Most of that cash is going through the hands of a media mogul and straight into an off shore account or an insider's market.
