My position follows :
A) Greed is the engine that makes capitalism move.
B) Most of the elements in the system are fueled by greed.
C) Politicians beneffit from large donations from persons and corporations
D) Politicians will want to keep the donations flowing as they recieve a beneffit from them.
E) From D, it follows large donnors and corporations will have a leverage on the policies dictated by the recipients of their donations.

Further more :
By the current state of matters , economic inequality gets translated into political inequality. This in turn creates more economic inequality, as the laws produced by the government will tend to increase capital gains.
Lax anti-trust laws.
Increase in information asymmetry
Decrease in tax rates

... I somehow get the impression this line of though went unnoticed by the Supreme Court .

Share your thoughts.
