Judge Nap: Supreme Court Sees Money as Equivalent to Speech

As seen on Fox and Friends

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United States struck down overall limits on political contributions in a 5-4 decision.

Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted to the decision today on Fox and Friends.

He said the current Supreme Court justices’ attitude toward the First Amendment is that money is the equivalent of speech.

“The First Amendment says when you have to spend money in order to be heard – whether you’re buying a full page ad or creating a website or contributing to a candidate, you have the right to do that,” the judge assessed.

Judge Napolitano said he can’t understand why more Democrats aren’t in favor of this ruling.

“There are actually more rich Democrats that spend money on political campaigns than there are rich Republicans," he said.
