As a result of this ruling, campaign spending in the 2010 Congressional mid-term election increased by 330% over funds spent in 2006.

Interview with Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL, Pro-Choice America, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
 During last November's congressional campaign, the issue of abortion was barely raised, and GOP conservative candidates ran mostly on economic issues, calling for jobs and balancing the budget. Now that the new Congress has been seated, pro-choice groups are counting a majority of anti-choice legislators in both the House and Senate. On the 38th anniversary of the landmark Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion, pro-choice groups are dismayed.

Demonization, Scapegoating and Violence on the Right a Smokescreen for the Corporate Agenda
Interview with Chip Berlet, senior analyst with Political Research Associates, conducted by Scott Harris
 The national debate which followed accused gunman Jared Lee Loughner's Jan. 8 Tuscson shooting rampage that killed 6 and wounded 13, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, followed a familiar script. Conservative commentators and politicians who regularly accuse their opponents of being traitors, communists, allies of terrorists, and enemies of America strongly rejected any connection between their angry, hateful rhetoric with politically motivated violence in Tucson or anywhere else.
