Majority-Liberal Supreme Court Could Transform America

A majority-liberal Supreme Court, for the first time since 1971, could expand women’s rights, voting rights for minorities, workers’ rights to organize, and improve funding for schools in low wealth neighborhoods. It might reverse Citizens United, which declared that corporations are people and have the right under the free speech clause of the First Amendment to contribute unlimited amounts to political campaigns without public disclosure. That decision has had such a destructive impact on public faith in democratic processes, with citizens now deeply suspicious of politicians, fearing they are bought and paid for by special interests, especially Wall Street, and big pharma.
