Money and Politics in the Aftermath of McCutcheon v. FEC

Hosted by

If the Citizens United Case "opened the door" to big money in politics four years ago, this week's McCutcheon decision "will open a floodgate." That's according to dissenters on the US Supreme Court. But the majority calls it a victory for the First Amendment. We hear about the latest decision on campaign finance reform. Also, Secretary of State John Kerry says "it's reality check time" for US Middle East policy, and there's a prevailing belief that colleges are a lot harder to get into than they used to be. Is that a myth or a reality? Maybe it's both.
