SCOTUS Strikes Again

Another garbage decision empowering the moneyed class, care of the United States Supreme Court:
The Supreme Court has tossed out an Arizona law that provides extra taxpayer-funded support for office seekers who have been outspent by privately funded opponents or by independent political groups.

A conservative 5-4 majority of justices on Monday said the law violated free speech, concluding the state was impermissibly trying to "level the playing field" through a public finance system.
Welcome to America 2.0: The Corporatocracy.

RIP Democracy.
