In 2010, the Supreme Court made a policy that would adjust politics, in Citizens United and Federal Election Commission. The plan wholly altered the background of American elections. The decision brought the idea of “Corporations are people, and gave an avenue to special interests and billionaires to expend untraceable money and unlimited money in American’s elections. Hence there no transparency and answerability on the expenditure of the money. The wealthy people and corporations attempt to balance political power in their favor.
