Chief Justice Roberts' Court has been more supportive of corporate interests than any modern court. Especially impactful have been cases eviscerating political donation limits, including the infamous Citizens United v FEC, in which the Court ruled that spending- even by nonpersons- constituted "free speech" under the First Amendment. All five Republican-appointed justices have voted in favor of business litigants in over 50% of cases. Four are among the six most pro-business justices to sit on the Court. Evidently, Roberts is just doing what's best for the people... cause "they're people too."
