Inaction Since Citizens United:
How Long Has Obama Not Acted to
Curb Money in Politics?
Outside money has flooded our elections ever since the U.S. Supreme Court issued its 2010 Citizens United
ruling at 10:01 a.m. on January 21, giving corporations and the wealthy the green light to spend unlimited sums to influence elections.
President Barack Obama has called for action - but hasn't even done the one thing within his authority to address the problem. With the stroke of a pen, he could require federal contractors to disclose political spending.
