Sam Alito had a Joe Wilson moment last night.....

corporate personhood imagesSam Alito had a Joe Wilson moment last night. President Obama took a shot at the Supreme Court's ruling to roll back limits on corporate spending on political campaigns in his State of the Union. He said, it "reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests - including foreign companies - to spend without limit in our elections.Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, and worse, by foreign entities." He then added, "They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong." The rebuke is powerful and unusual. Alito shook his head and said quietly, "That's not true." Sam Alito and activist conservative judges just sold out this country, not just to USA Big Business, but also foreign Big Business. It looks like the President is on our side on this one.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
