On Wednesday, President Obama was part of
a Reddit Q & A session where he said that he would support overturning the notorious Citizen’s United ruling via an amendment to the Constitution. When asked what he thought about that by a right wing media outlet, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s response was silly and outlandish:
“ It’s an act of genuine radicalism. ”
What is easily termed “radicalism” is the Citizen’s United ruling which declared that “corporations are people”. A ruling that turned our democracy into a plutocracy that can be bought. But no one doubts that that’s what you and your fellow Republicans are being paid for, Sen. McConnell.
