Sens. McCain and Feingold on Citizens United v. FEC

Things have been quiet on the Don’t Get Rolled front. We’re still waiting for the Supreme Court’s decision, and there’s still good reason to fear that the court could overturn a century of campaign finance law, allowing unlimited corporate spending to influence elections. Sound like a bad idea to you? You can pledge to protest if the court decides to open the floodates to corporate money in politics.

Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), primary sponsors of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act in 2002, eloquently defend the campaign finance laws that the court is threatening in the YouTube videos below.
