It isn't hypocritical. Fundraising has always been important, and the Democratic Party has ALWAYS been for limiting the amount any one person can donate. It is the Republicans who created the monster that is corporate campaign financing, not democrats. It is Republicans who sue all the way to the Supreme Court to ensure that the Koch Brothers can spend $100 million on campaign lies and $400 million on PACs whose sole purpose is to run smear ads under the guise of "free speech."
But rules are rules, and if you set the rule that we have to out-raise you instead of just our usual outsmart, outwork, out-campaign, out-debate and out-logic you, so be it. We will win. As usual.
So why didnt they push through campaign finance reform when they had the presidency and control of Congress?

Same reason they can't pass a jobs bill - most filibusters and obstruction ever witnessed since the birth of this nation. But again, you're confusing two vastly different paradigms of money in politics. We could pass finance reform that says no one can spend more than $5 on campaign. But it would have exactly ZERO EFFECT on the PACs that are clearly the primary problem today. Nothing can stop the Koch Brothers from spending $10 billion on the next election. Nothing. And that opportunity was backed by Republicans and opposed by Democrats.

Tell that little whiny Bacon boy to man up. If my brother and I were stupid enough to be democrats, he would be all giddy about our campaign spending. Of course if we were democrats, we would have laid around all day doing nothing and wouldn't have any money to spend.

So you support unlimited spending by corporations in politics? If so, hey, you're in the right party.

Hey, just because I manscape my man, enjoy female azz vocalists, and think Perez Hilton is fabulous, doesn't mean I'm not gay.

Hell, you would need two feet with most of the fingers intact to count the number of dogs I've had sex with.

Don't forget about the gays. They're taking over.

They came here to freak out bigots and dress sharp. And they already dressed sharp.

Yeah that pesky thing called free speech. What a pain. Maybe we should ban the Constitution.

Let be honest. The Dems could have passed whatever they wanted to when the controlled the Senate and the House. The Republicans could not have stopped anything if the Dems wanted to push it through.

Corporations can say whatever they like. They can buy whatever ad they like and assert any message they choose. That doesn't mean they should be able to set up entities OBVIOUSLY organized to influence voters. Consumers, fine. Voters? Not hardly. They should be able to make the standard campaign contribution -$2500. Just like I can (and do). Koch Industries setting up a "think tank" whose sole purpose is influence an election isn't "free speech."

Do you agree that corporations should be able to put unlimited amounts of money in US politics?

Not only is Obamacare the law of the land, but campaign finance is also. You tell republicans to get over Obamacare, why don't you set the example?

I dont agree that corporations are people, but it isnt up to me is it. If indeed a corporation has the same rights as a person which is the case since the Supreme Court said so, they have a right to spend their money however they please and that includes setting up "think tanks" and advertising.
