Opinion: The Supreme Court's democracy test

Now imagine that overall contribution limits are struck down. Presidential candidates in 2016 could solicit and each of these donors could contribute as much as $1.2 million to their joint fundraising committees. This huge contribution, consisting of the contributions that could be given to all of the committees of a party, could then be spent to support the presidential candidate who solicited the new, maximum contribution. Without the overall limit, there is no cap on the number of party committees that could participate in a joint fundraising committee.
