Transpartisan Innovations with Michael Ostrolenk

May 23, 2011

The U.S. Supreme Court in its Citizen United decision overturned the McCain-Feingold limitations on corporate financing of political ads saying that they violated corporations’ First Amendment rights to free speech. In this podcast, Jeff Clements of Free Speech for the People, tells host Michael Ostrolenk why he believes the decision was incorrect and that corporations should not be protected in the same manner as individuals. Corporations are granted special powers by the government they should not be allowed to leverage into political power, states Mr. Clements. He also details the Founding Fathers’ suspicions about government enabled concentration of power in corporations and tells listeners how they can learn more about the “People’s Rights Amendment.”
