Today on Your Call: How is Citizens United shaping this year's election?

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the Supreme Court’s ruling, which allows corporations and citizens to spend unlimited amounts of money backing candidates. With the proliferation of so-called Super PACs and with so much cash flowing to both parties, how has politics been influenced by big money? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. What will it take to remove money from politics? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Jonah Minkoff-Zern, senior organizer with Public Citizen's Democracy is for People Campaign

Michael Beckel, politics reporter at the Center for Public Integrity -- he focuses on super PACs and the influence of election money
