TODAY: Friend, please call President Obama today and ask him to help stop secret money in our elections by requiring federal contractors to disclose their political spending. We need your voice: 888-848-4824
It’s down to the wire. In the next few weeks, President Obama will decide whether to use one of the most powerful tools he has to curb secret money’s influence in our politics.
The President should issue an executive order requiring federal contractors to disclose their political spending. That’d give voters the facts we deserve about who is trying to influence our views and our elected representatives.
If companies that take taxpayer money are using it for political gain, we have a right to know. But if he doesn’t act before campaign season kicks into full swing, he might not get another chance.
Please take two minutes and call the White House with this toll-free number:
Here’s a sample of what to say:
Voters deserve to know who’s spending money in our elections. That’s why President Obama should immediately issue an executive order requiring federal contractors to disclose their political spending.
(The White House is already getting overwhelmed with calls about this today -- so if you don't get through, try again!)
After your call, click here and tell us how how it went so we can track the number of calls and the White House’s response.
Countless times, President Obama has spoken out against how Citizens United tilted our democracy away from voters and towards a few special interests. Before he leaves office, President Obama must finally use his authority to restore some balance to our system.
That’s why today, thousands of activists from dozens of organizations are flooding the White House switchboard with calls, urging President Obama to take action against secret money in our politics.
An executive order could cover up to 70 of the Fortune 100 companies, including Exxon-Mobil, Bank of America, and Boeing.1 And if everyone who’s reading this picks up the phone right now, the White House will have no choice but to listen.
Demand transparency today! Call 888-848-4824 and urge President Obama to issue an executive order requiring federal contractors to disclose their political spending.
Thanks for all you do,
