After beating back amnesty for illegal aliens in the D.R.E.A.M. Act, get ready for the next full frontal assault on the American way of life. It's called the "Disclose Act", and it limits the participation of corporations in the political process. The Democrats are once again attacking that pesky 1st Amendment. From Friends of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce:

"Despite failing to pass in July, the so-called DISCLOSE Act is now being reconsidered, indicating the level of Congressional leaders' desperation to maintain their political majority.
Aimed squarely at the business community, the so-called DISCLOSE Act would create a thicket of new regulatory requirements in order to gain political advantage in the approaching November elections and to deter American businesses from participating in the political process.
Additionally, House carve-outs and exemptions for the biggest political contributors, including the NRA and unions, make it appear that instead of campaign finance reform, this bill is more of the same with back room deals and politics as usual.
If Congress wants to make the political process more transparent, they should begin by applying those standards to their own negotiations.
Nothing makes Americans angrier than members of Congress who are more concerned about protecting their own jobs than creating new ones for unemployed constituents.
With a second vote expected as soon as Thursday, your Senators need to hear from you on the discriminatory nature of this bill, as well as its obvious partisan intent."
Take action NOW!!
