Bob Edgar, President/CEO, Common Cause
Nick Nyhart, President/CEO, Public Campaign
As health care and other industries spend millions per day on lobbying in Washington, the Supreme Court stands poised to declare a law forbidding campaign contributions by corporations and labor unions as unconstitutional.
