KD, I disagree-here is why:
We already have a congress that is largely bought and paid for by specific interests. Yesterdays decision ratifies that reality. Incorporation does not confer the rights of citizenship upon the incorporated. Thus, the enumerated rights laid out in the Constitution as sacrosanct do not apply to corporate interest. This same logic should apply to Unions, the AARP and any other specific group. If Jeffrey Immelt wants to spend 10MM of his own cash to do issue or candidate that favor GE ads fine. But don't use the tax code to lobby as a corporation and then write off the expense. The right to petition the government for redress of grievances is sacrosanct right but it applies to our citizens not legal entities.
