Money in Politics

OPB | Feb. 15, 2012 9:06 a.m. | Updated: Sept. 10, 2013 11:11 p.m.

The injection of millions of dollars of SuperPAC money in the 2012 election cycle has prompted Oregon Senators Wyden and Merkley to support a Constitutional Amendment that would allow for the regulating of campaign contributions. The U.S. Supreme Court ruling known as Citizens United makes it virtually impossible to regulate money in elections, and those on the left say the only option remaining is the amendment route.

Do you support such an amendment? What role do you think financial contributions should play in elections? How — if at all — should contributions be limited?


Editor’s note: Jeff Merkley will join us at 9:30 this morning to discuss why he’s supporting a Constitutional Amendment to regulate money in politics.
