The President of the United States released this statement today:
"With its ruling today, the Supreme Court has given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics. It is a major victory for big oil, Wall Street banks, health insurance companies and the other powerful interests that marshal their power every day in Washington to drown out the voices of everyday Americans. This ruling gives the special interests and their lobbyists even more power in Washington--while undermining the influence of average Americans who make small contributions to support their preferred candidates. That's why I am instructing my Administration to get to work immediately with Congress on this issue. We are going to talk with bipartisan Congressional leaders to develop a forceful response to this decision. The public interest requires nothing less."
The case President Obama refers to is Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The Supreme Court ruled that the government can't ban corporations' spending during federal election campaigns.
The Judicial Branch is meant to serve as a check and balance to the powers of the President and the Executive office and the Legislative branch t. President Obama appears to be aiming to get the Legislative branch on the side of the Executive branch and give the (intended) equilateral triangle of our government a hefty shove. It remains to be seen when checks and counter-checks will settle into a balance.
