    A video of arguments for the case of McCutcheon vs. Federal Election Commission have recently surfaced. The group 99Rise is claiming responsibility for the video. The case of McCutcheon vs. Federal Election Commission is another attempt to erode our Democracy by removing the cap on individual campaign contributions. A leader of 99Rise, Noah Kai Newkir, is shown demanding that the Citizens United decision be overturned. He is currently facing misdemeanor for his outburst.

    My hats off to these brave young people. There are actually two major issues here. Number one is the fact that the Supreme Court has allowed our elections to be bought and sold. Number 2, why shouldn't cameras be allowed in our Supreme Court. Our citizens have the right to see what is going on in such a significant branch of government that affects all of our lives.
