Quote of the Day

“All contributions by corporations to any political committee for any political purpose should be forbidden by law; directors should not be permitted to use stockholders' money for such purposes; and, moreover, a prohibition of this kind would be, as far as it went, an effective method of stopping the evils aimed at in corrupt practices acts.”

— Pres. Teddy Roosevelt, in his annual message to Congress, 1905, as relayed in Justice John Paul Stevens' book, “Six Amendments.” One of six amendments to the U.S. Constitution Stevens is arguing for would limit the kind of corporate spending in politics that the Ciitzens United decision unleashed.
