ABSTRACT
The article explores the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling concerning limitations on contributions to the campaign funds of a political candidate, as of March 1976. Some claim that it is a bill that favors rich people. Very rich people in the U.S. who spend a lot of their money on their candidates tend to be on the left side of their parties. The Supreme Court ruling is allegedly confusing since it limits the contributions of an individual to a candidate, but an individual can contribute as much as he wants to further the cause of a candidate as long as the candidate does not receive the funds directly.
