The article presents the author's views concerning the problem with regulating political speeches in the U.S. He explores the court case Citizens United v. FCC wherein the Disclose Act was implemented. It mentions that the bill subjects corporations to issue advocacy limits, but specifically exempt a few entities hand-picked by House Democrats. The author sees that the restrictions applies the First Amendment because they make speech rights contingent on supporting the party currently in power.
