URGENT: Oppose Likely Vote on DISCLOSE Act

Remember, the Disclose Act will harm your ability to fire and replace your elected representatives. The bill will come to the House floor as early as TOMORROW – Thursday, June 24. Please send Congress a letter opposing this terrible violation of the First Amendment:

Remember, Congressional leaders have already created exemptions to this law for large groups like the NRA and AARP. This serves to show who this law is really aimed at. YOU!

You can copy or borrow from my letter to Congress . . .

There have been many critics of the exemption to the DISCLOSE Act that Congressional leaders created for large organizations like the NRA and AARP. But I want to point at what this exemption really means . . .

It isn’t big, powerful, organizations that you politicians fear, it’s ME, the humble voter and taxpayer, because that’s whom the DISCLOSE Act is really aimed at.

I don’t mind the NRA and AARP being exempted, I just want everyone else exempted too. And that neatly explains why you shouldn’t pass any version of this bill.

END LETTER

You can send your letter using DownsizeDC.org’s Educate the Powerful System.

Please also CALL your Representative to oppose this bill. You can see his or her number when you are logged-in to our campaign.
