All right now the president does not like the idea.
That under the Citizens United that ruling from the Supreme Court corporations can put in as much money as they like into political campaigns they will be the equivalent of unions they come both sides -- on the fence -- and as much money as they like.
President Obama does not like the -- because of the deluge of money coming from corporations.
Democrat strategist Chris on his -- actress who -- -- the usual thing.
A wanna go through three subjects starting with Citizens United are limited contribution -- I'm putting on a talk.
I got twenty seconds you got the got subject first want Citizens United here we go.
The president and the Democrats -- whining about this because a -- corporate cash is flowing to the Republicans.
Last time around it flowed to the Democrats but you don't like that because this time it's going to the Republicans secondly.
You'll gonna tell us that because of all it's money that's being spent it detracts from the issues and that the money buys the election.
You'll suggesting that voters are idiots and -- -- assess things on the basis of the issues involved go.
I'm not suggesting anything I -- I can't change my entire career and every campaign where I've outspent my opponent I've won and every campaign where I've been outspent.
Substantially -- lost.
And I think that's what's gonna happen here not so much on the presidential level but down ticket.
-- suggest that Citizens United put corporations and unions on the same footing is.
Ridiculous the Coke Brothers alone -- -- -- 100 million dollars that's more than John McCain spent on his entire campaign the last time around it's a ridiculous amount of money and the Supreme Court this week.
Basically -- unions' ability to put money to campaign to make it harder for them to do that so there is a movement afoot here to suppress the people and big corporations equals with people which they are not thinking not lead they do not have a heart.

They lump and they crying and they dance they live and they died.
Learn the difference.
OK now the president was standing right next to ms.

Until America remembers its routes which are private enterprise the pursuit of profit and individual liberty.
The president represents the other side of the fence and so doesn't is warrant.
Go you're missing the point.
We're talking about private enterprise being bad.
But we think it's bad -- we do say is private enterprise should have the same role -- -- people in American life.
There was a big problem here with the -- Citizens United was was decided based on basically Buckley -- liar which has money is speech and then the Supreme Court says.
These these corporations have the same rights is people.
And the Republicans wanna -- Mitt Romney is going to be good for business who's who's it good businessman listen.
I want to create jobs in America not India.
That's what Mitt Romney he and create jobs here and create tons of jobs overseas they'll accept American jobs -- he's got into -- that.

Poll I ask -- How can we going forward possibly trim any entitlement program when you can -- -- waste out of food stamps what is manifestly obvious -- Well you eat you think it's a lot of money to 77 billion dollars a year because that's about the same amount of money we spend on the bush tax cut for the richest 1% in this country.

It's a good program and keep people healthy.
