Mike Pence Praises Supreme Court Decision In Citizens United Case

PENCE PRAISES SUPREME COURT DECISION IN CITIZENS UNITED CASE

WASHINGTON, DC-U.S. Congressman Mike Pence issued the
following
statement today after the United States Supreme
of Citizens United in the case of Citizens United v. Federal
Election
Commission:

"Freedom won today in the Supreme Court. Today's ruling in
the Citizens
United case takes us one step closer to the Founding
Fathers' vision of
free speech, a vision that is cherished by all
Americans and one
Congress has a responsibility to protect. If
the freedom of speech means
anything, it means protecting the
right of private citizens to voice
opposition or support for their
elected representatives. The fact that
the Court overturned a
20-year precedent speaks volumes about the
importance of this
issue.


"In 2003, the Supreme Court unwisely supported the oppressive
restrictions on free speech that were part of the 2002 campaign
finance
law. At the time, I was honored to stand with Senator
Mitch McConnell
and various state and national organizations
in challenging this
historic error in court. Since that time, the
Court has taken important
steps toward restoring to the American
people their First Amendment
rights. This decision is a victory on
behalf of those who cherish the
fundamental freedoms protected
by the First Amendment."
