Tremendous news: President Obama is seriously considering signing an executive order requiring federal contractors to disclose their political spending.
It’s about time. Limiting federal contractors’ influence to elect the politicians that award contracts worth millions of taxpayer dollars to those same companies seems like an obvious move to eliminate corruption or potential corruption. Moreover, so long as there are companies that profit from the U.S. waging endless war, companies that the government pays to build bombs or rebuild countries, it is crucial to championing a diplomacy-first, law-abiding, peace-centered foreign policy that these companies disclose which candidates they are propelling to public office.
Tell the President not to waste another minute and sign an executive order requiring federal contractors’ disclosure of political spending. Call the White House NOW at 1-888-894-6720. You can say something like:
“I urge President Obama to end “dark money” by immediately signing an executive order mandating that publicly report their contributions to groups that spend money to influence campaigns.”
