U.S. Supreme Court Decision Removes $123,200 Overall Limit on Contributions to Federal Candidates & PACS

“The McCutcheon ruling confirms that the Robert’s Court is intent on returning to the days when politics and government were the sole domain of the rich,” said Craig McDonald, Director, Texans for Public Justice.

“This Court is fine with the notion that the size of one's wallet determines the strength of one's political influence. To this Court, it's "one dollar, one vote" instead of ‘one person, one vote,’” statement by Joanne Richards, President Common Ground for Texas.

"The ‘pay for play’ decision by the Supreme Court has dimmed our democracy. The gates are fully open for the utra-rich to buy those who were once considered the representatives of the people,” Liz Wally, Clean Elections Texas Executive Director.
