President Obama, Stand Up to the
U.S. Chamber and Fight for Disclosure

Sign the Petition to Support the President’s Executive Order

“We will fight it through all available means […] To quote what they say every day on Libya, all options are on the table.”

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 Chamber’s pledge to fight tooth and nail to keep the American people in the dark about conflicts of interest in government is appalling, but not surprising.

If corporations and their executives are spending on politicians in an effort to “win” government contracts, the American people should know.

Urge President Obama to stand up to the U.S. Chamber and fight for disclosure. Sign the petition today!
