AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said that the U.S. electoral process has been broken by the Supreme Court with its ruling in the Citizens United campaign finance case. Trumka, speaking at a National Press Club luncheon on Friday said the Supreme Court had helped to break the American electoral system by ruling that corporations were covered by the First Amendment. The Supreme Courts 5-4 ruling in Citizens United vs. the FEC lifted restrictions on companies, unions, and other organizations, allowing them to make independent expenditures in political campaigns.

Protectionist thugs won't even let us spend our OWN money on politics simply to protect (keep) our own property rights (our work products). They want to disarm us in the political arena - where money donations help protect yourself from theft by politicians. Only THEY can "spend" on politics & campaigns? -Really?

(88% of Americans are NON-UNION. We value honest, peaceful Free trade-NOT protectionist CARTELS)
Trumka is a killer. He murdered a woman's husband in a union dispute of some kind. They looted the treasury to pay her off.
Whatever he says DON'T BELIEVE IT.

If there was ever a person whom should take one for the Team it would be Trumka. I don't say this lightly, but this guy dying in his sleep would be a tragedy for his Family, but a good thing for America.

Why would he feel compelled to do that (?) ... he bragged recently he's a visitor to the WH a least a couple of times a week. He probably has dibs on the Lincoln bedroom.

Such a shame that McCain declared Obie’s associations off limits. Palling around with terrorists (and various other criminals and thugs).

The Supreme Courts 5-4 ruling
Fix this in your mind...the transfer of ONE judge could result in the total loss of the Constitution as we know it. Just one judge!

Wait until the Supremes uphold voter ID. You marxists won't be able to steal elections anymore.
