The Citizens United decision unleashed a new level of influence over war & peace for corporations. But there’s something President Obama can do, with the stroke of a pen, to reduce that influence.
Corporations awarded federal contracts – including Pentagon contractors – should be required to disclose their political donations to candidates and SuperPACs. We deserve to know which political campaigns are funded by companies to whom our tax-dollars are awarded.
It is imperative that corporations that profit from our wars of choice are no longer able to hide their donations in SuperPACs that support intervention and oppose deals like the Iran Nuclear Agreement. That’s why President Obama should sign an executive order mandating disclosure today.
Call the White House NOW at 1-888-894-6720 and say,
“I urge President Obama to issue an executive order without delay requiring companies that receive taxpayer money from federal contracts to disclose their political spending.”
When you’re done, please report your call below.
Today, over 750,000 signatures will be delivered to the White House in support of an executive order instituting transparency for federal contractors’ political donations. Over 13,000 are Just Foreign Policy subscribers.
