    Good! Only US Citizens and not Corporations, should be able to give donations to politicians.

    The impact of Citizens United is that people who are in the government actually have to answer for what they do, no wonder they want it changed.

    You should tell Obama that, his website doesn't even make sure his donations come from US residents, never mind actually checking their citizenship.

    And the money has nothing to do with it? Because that's the big objection.

    No it isn't, the big objection is that incumbent Senators are loosing primary elections.

    I guess McCain found another democrat stooge after Russ Feingold lost. The reason George Soros's media matters propaganda tank is tax exempt is because of the monstrosity McCain/Feingold created with their ironically named " campaign finance reform". The supreme court determined that money is speech and democrats have been whining about it ever since. Live with it people. Corporations are not your enemy. Any American can incorporate or create his/her own corporation. Every small business is incorporated for a variety of reasons. The Sierra Club and PETA and media matters are incorporated as well as the NRA. Why would bigots like McCain and his democrat stooge prevent Americans who happen to be members of a corporation from pooling their money to support a candidate? Because asses like McCain don't believe in the political process that keeps them in office or maybe they think it's a popular issue among ignorant quasi-socialists and they might get invited to the next liberal media cocktail party.
