Neil Gorsuch, the federal appeals judge nominated for U.S. Supreme Court, shows a "preference for concentrated wealth and power" in his rulings, an analysis by The Washington Post concludes.

"He has consistently been the friend of big business and monopolies at the expense of competition and open markets, and the friend of big donors at the expense of small donors. In disputes between the employee and employer, he sides with the boss," writes Zephyr Teachout, who teaches law at Fordham University.

Teachout adds that Gorsuch could vote to "strike down the existing limits of $2,700 per person for a federal candidate, allowing unlimited personal and corporate direct donations to candidates."

"A Gorsuch democracy won't look much like a democracy at all, with donors allowed essentially unlimited avenues for influence," she says.

As well, according to Teachout, "Gorsuch's views on antitrust and campaign finance go hand in hand. They reveal a judge who will further open the way for a few wealthy people to rob the American people of their basic freedoms and properties, and to subvert our democracy once and for all."
