Supreme Court Strikes Down Aggregate Contribution Limit

The U.S. Supreme Court today issued its opinion in McCutcheon v. FEC striking down the current aggregate contribution limit on political contributions.

The individual aggregate two-year contribution limit had been $48,600 for giving to federal candidates, and $74,600 for giving to political party committees. See FEC brochure, The Biennial Contribution Limit.

The opinion did not change the individual contribution limit of giving $2,600 to a federal candidate, per election.

    Do you realize you really can make $5000 per week trading? I would have
    never believed it until I saw it for myself or I started doing it. And that’s
    exactly what happened to me because now I’m making that much money. You just
    need to know the right place to learn and where I went to is a website called Gold
    Trading Academy, you should be able to find them on Google or just search for
    them. Their support is the best I’ve ever seen on any website before and they
    helped me to learn to trade, and it was nowhere near as hard as I thought it
    would be.

    Since liberty’s equality before the law naturally results in the claim that responsible people have a share in making the law, democratic methods tend to accompany liberty’s principles.
