Hotttttt off the press......just came in to my email. If you agree please sign the petition! Lets keep posting here actions we can take on this subject!

If union members have to opt-in, corporate shareholders should too

With Citizens United, the activist conservative Supreme Court ruled that corporations could spend unlimited amounts of unregulated money to buy elections.

Now, that same activist conservative Supreme Court ruled that unions have to get opt-in permission from non-members to use dues for political purposes.

In response, sign our petition asking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to introduce legislation requiring corporations to get opt-in permission from shareholders in order to be allowed to use company resources for political purposes.

You're forgetting that corporations are people and people have a right to spend money given to them any way they choose to. Don't fall victim to the false argument that unions and corporations are the same. A union is a group of people joining together in common interest. A corporation is a person supported by shareholders(usually other corporations such as mutual funds) and customers.

Thanks, Mrs. BJLee!

Let's destroy this stealthy earth-destroying, people-destroying, shenanigan of a case—piece-by-piece.

The Perennial GOP Tax Scam

There's something about taxes that elected Republicans know, but most Americans are completely unaware of. It's the reason we keep falling for the perennial GOP tax scam, and Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and their buddies in the White House are getting ready to run this ruse on American working people all over again.
