    Rock Center with Brian Williams - Unlimited contributions give 'Super PACs' power to change presidential race

    I realize that the USSC ruled on this and it is perfectly legal, but is this REALLY beneificial to us citizens? We already know that the US has the best health care money can buy, but do we really want the best Federal government money can buy too?

    The right wing Scotus was doing what they were picked to do.

    To help enforce Grover Norquists drowning of this nation.

    I disagree with you. The implications of the SuperPACs are being felt by the GOP and their voters. Right, wrong or indifferent....

    Did you see Romney pull the ol "Hey those are Super PACs...not me" routine. This SuperPAC idea is bad for all of us. All a canidate needs is a sugar daddy and the sugar daddy can make any lie they want to influence elections.

    Stephen Colbert shows you how it's done. Uses a SuperPAC to call Mitt Romney a seriel killer. Fair?

    Its the part they didnt think of.

    It wont matter because much of the Norquist plan was never thought through.

    The people who came up with the plan are not as bright as they think they are.

    It was all part of the Rove permanent majority plan.

    Right wing Scotus appointments, DOJ corrupting, demonizing ACORN, ID voter laws, gerrymandering and wars for oil to distract the people.


    The right leaning power in this country wants everything handed over to the corporations.

    That is the plan

    You can thank that dip shit RINO McLame and his liberal dough head counter part Feingold for Super Pacs. It's all from the Campaign Finance Reform bill. Just one more thing that needs to be repealed because it's GARBAGE.

    obama wants a billion dollars for his reelection campaign.

    It isn't that superpacs donate to Republican campaigns, it's that ANY money at all is donated to Republican candidates.

    It is as I always say. If a person votes for someone based on what they saw in a misinformational TV ad, they deserve to be lied to, and get the government that's coming to them.

    I swear. Some people put more thought into what deodorant they use than what leaders they choose.

    Don't blame the Super-PACs for that problem.

    Look in the mirror. There's your problem.

    squawk! Romney's a capitalist pig...Romney's a capitalist pig squawk!

    squawk! Obama's a socialist...Obama's a socialist squawk!

    squawk! death panels...death panels squawk!

    squawk! one man, one woman...one man, one woman squawk!

    squawk! one percent...one percent squawk!

    squawk! tax the rich...tax the rich squawk!
