President Obama wants us all to go along with his Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland. Apparently change you can believe in means appointing center-right corporatists with a history of scrapping habeas corpus. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"There is one very important case on Garland’s record, however, that gives reformers pause:SpeechNow vs. FEC, a decision that, along with Citizens United, made possible the current proliferation of super PACs. Citizens United did away with limits on how much third party groups could spend, so long as they didn’t coordinate with campaigns. SpeechNow allowed donors to give as much as they wanted to political action committees — again, so long as those groups didn’t coordinate with campaigns. The decisions, both decided in 2010, were two sides of the same coin. Garland joined the unanimous decision on SpeechNow written by Judge David B. Sentelle.

But Garland’s decision on SpeechNow does not necessarily indicate how he would vote on a case seeking to reverse Citizens United, should one reach the bench, reformers believe. “We personally think that there’s a lot of daylight between Citizens United and SpeechNow,” said Greytak.”*
