That’s what the chief lobbyist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce told the New York Times after hearing the White House may issue an executive order requiring corporations that do business with the government to disclose their political spending.
The U.S. Chamber is wrong. If corporations and CEOs are spending on politicians in an effort to “win” government contracts, the American people should know.
Then please forward this message to your friends, family members, coworkers and neighbors who oppose the corporate corruption of our government.
The Chamber’s pledge to fight tooth and nail to keep the American people in the dark about corporate corruption and conflicts of interest in our government is appalling, but not surprising.
Government contracts should be awarded based on merit, not money. We, the People, have a right to know whether that's happening.
President Obama, stand strong. Disclose political spending by government contractors.
