Congress set to open the floodgates on campaign cash

But hey, it's just the Free Market at work:

Beyond that, some see this as a way for the parties to wrest back some of the influence they've lost to Super PACs since the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United ruling.

When independent political organizations can collect unlimited amounts of money from billionaires, and spend it to elect favorite politicians, who are the pols beholden to? Why should the parties have to live with restrictions and lose their pull? This wouldn't do away with limits, but it would open the gates for millions of dollars more.

And (once again) vastly increase the gap between the haves and the have-nots, when it comes to influencing the direction of public policy. A phrase which frankly is beginning to sound more and more ludicrous as time goes by. We may as well just start calling it what it is, the "corporate agenda" enactments of subsidized misrepresentatives.
