Former Chairman of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Brad Smith talks to Cam Edwards about the changed political atmosphere as special-interest groups move to respond to the recent health care law using their newly unrestricted right to corporate political speech. Smith says that many states are responding by attempting to impose their own campaign finance restrictions where none had existed before. He points out that while the term may evoke greedy business interests, most groups that accomplish reform in the present day qualify as corporations.
