Last week, we ran some expert-recommended books about money in politics. For this week’s Democratic convention, we picked out some other great reading material.
President Obama seems to fall on the side that too much money corrupts politics. He suggested that American citizens should get behind a constitutional amendment process to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling in favor of fewer regulations on money spent in politics.
Should Super PACs be allowed to do as they please? Or should their be a limit on private citizen spending for campaigns? Should these citizens be protected under the First Amendment (free speech) or not?
These are difficult questions to answer, but some of these books might help you get there.
