"The One-Percent Court"
Because of partisan gridlock in Washington, the Supreme Court has become the most powerful and outspoken branch of government - decisions they make shape our democracy's fate for generations to come. Now, one has only to look at Bush V. Gore, Citizens United, and the Affordable Care Act rulings to understand why some call it a "one-percent Court" -- dedicated by majority rule to preserving the power and influence of a minority of wealthy special interests. This week on Moyers & Company (check local listings), The Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel and Jamie Raskin, constitutional law professor and Maryland state senator, join Bill to discuss how the uncontested power of the Supreme Court is changing our elections, our country, and our lives.
