President Obama on Citizens United..

I think the campaign finance case he was asked about at the start of the video is FEC vs McCutcheon

This is from 2013.



If Hillary were elected, she would have appointed a justice to counter the conservatives on the bench in matters where "corporate personhood" and big money in politics are concerned. Yes, she is also against Citizen's United and note Obama's explanation of the predicament that ruling put all politicians in around 1:00 mark. (edit: my bad)

2. Yes. ( I just corrected the time mark where he talks about how it affected politics in general)

Now we have a SCOTUS pick who has consistently ruled or dissented in favor of corporations.
