Video: Leahy rips Supreme Court

Editor's Note: Last night, during President Obama's State of the Union speech, the President took the unusual step of criticizing the recent decision by the Supreme Court for no spending limits on contributions by corporations to political candidates. Justice Alito could be seen mouthing the words, "not true." Today, on the Senate Floor, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D – Vt.) weighed in with his thoughts on the decision.

    I am very concerned for the life of our democracy if we now have a $upreme court that has decreed it backwards as Senator Leahy says and I agree. If money is (free) speech then those with no money have no free speech. Freedom of speech is one of the foundations of democracy. I hope the selling out of our freedoms will stop somehow.

    Regardless of right or wrong by the supreme court, it will be the will of the people to make the final decision in elections and the photo shoot is a vision the people have looked past and will continue to do so as we move forward. Our forsaken waif economy can not be allowed to turn us into refugees of political oppression.

    Not in 2010, and not after. We will be watching.
