Following two major court decisions in 2010, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and SpeechNow.org v. Federal Election Commission, spending by giant political action committees known as Super PACS has exploded. These organizations may receive and spend unlimited amounts of money from individuals, corporations, and unions to advocate for political candidates, as long as they are independent of the candidates' campaigns. Have Super PACs changed the political landscape for the better? Are they good for democracy, or is money in politics still over-regulated?
