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!

Tax cheats stash $2 trillion overseas!

America's biggest companies are playing by their own set of rules. According to a recent report from two major watchdog organizations, our nation's Fortune 500 companies have $2.1 trillion dollars stashed in overseas tax havens.

To put that number in perspective, it's worth noting that the entire federal budget for 2015 was only about $3.8 trillion.
