How 'Citizens United' Allows the Super-Wealthy to Buy Elections

On Up With Chris Hayes this Saturday, Chris Hayes argued that the FEC’s 2011 filings prove what we always expected to be true: “that the new Super Pacs exist chiefly as an instrument for the extremely wealthy to funnel massive amounts of cash into influencing the outcome of our elections.” In this hour, he also considers consumers’ responses to working conditions at Apple’s supplier factories and a retired NYPD officer’s views on the country’s drug war.
