Argument: Unlimied election spending is radical change
Fred Wertheimer. "Turning clock back 100 years, decision will corrupt government." The Atlanta Journal. January 27, 2010: "The decision is the most radical and destructive campaign finance decision in Supreme Court history. In order to reach the decision, five justices abandoned long-standing judicial principles, judicial precedents and judicial restraint. [...] With a stroke of the pen, five justices wiped out a century of American history devoted to preventing corporate corruption of our democracy."
Democratic senator Russ Feingold and co-crafter of the 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act stated "This decision was a terrible mistake. Presented with a relatively narrow legal issue, the Supreme Court chose to roll back laws that have limited the role of corporate money in federal elections since Teddy Roosevelt was president."
