ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues concerning the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn prohibitions on corporations airing political advertisements under the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 or the McCain-Feingold Act. President Barack Obama castigated the Supreme Court for granting freedom of speech covered by the First Amendment. The court's ruling has something to do with the case involving the Citizens United and the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
