 #DLU_US! Justice John Paul Stevens criticized Chief Justice Robert’s opinion in McCutcheon vs FEC… Your thoughts?

Justice John Paul Stevens

Justice John Paul Stevens

McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, 572 U.S. ___ (2014), was a landmark campaign finance case before the United States Supreme Court challenging Section 441 of the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA), which imposed a biennial aggregate limit on individual contributions to national party and federal candidate committees.

The case was argued before the Supreme Court on October 8, 2013,being brought on appeal after the United States District Court for the District of Columbia dismissed the challenge. It was decided on April 2, 2014, by a 5–4 vote, reversing the decision below and remanding. Justices Roberts, Scalia, Kennedy, and Alito invalidated aggregate contribution limits as violating the First Amendment. Justice Thomas provided the necessary fifth vote, but concurred separately in the judgment while arguing that all contribution limits are unconstitutional. ~Wikipedia.


 Equal Rights Amendment, Yes! #DLU_US!

Justice Ruth B Ginsburg

Justice Ruth B Ginsburg

The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) was a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution designed to guarantee equal rights for women. The ERA was originally written by Alice Paul and, in 1923, it was introduced in the Congress for the first time. In 1972, it passed both houses of Congress and went to the state legislatures for ratification.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “If I could choose an amendment to add to the Constitution, it would be the ‘Equal Rights Amendment. “

The resolution in Congress that proposed the amendment set a ratification deadline of March 22, 1979. Through 1977, the amendment received 35 of the necessary 38 state ratifications. Five states later rescinded their ratifications before the 1979 deadline, though the validity of these rescissions is disputed. In 1978, a joint resolution of Congress extended the ratification deadline to June 30, 1982, but no further states ratified the amendment before the passing of the second deadline. Several feminist organizations, disputing the validity and/or the permanence of the ratification deadline, and also disputing the validity of the five rescissions, continue to work at the federal and state levels for the adoption of the ERA. ~Wikipedia
