Emergency Action Alert... (from Herman Cain)

DISCLOSE Act: call and/or email your U.S. Senators IMMEDIATELY and insist they vote AGAINST the "Disclose Act" (S. 3295).

Harry Reid launched a sneak attack late Friday night to ram through the speech-killing "Disclose Act." The key vote to end debate and vote on the "Disclose Act" will be late today or early Tuesday.

As I warned in the recent CAIN ALERT entitled "Freedom of Speech is Under Attack", the House voted on and passed their version of a controversial bill (HR5175) that would ban certain government contractors, corporations, and nonprofit organizations from engaging in any political speech. The vote of 219 - 206, opened the door for a full Senate vote.

The real purpose of the "DISCLOSE" Act (which is an acronym for Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections) is to impose restrictions on speech by corporations, nonprofit groups and others who express themselves through political campaign advertising.

Of course UNIONS would be exempt from most of the provisions of the bill since unions support Democrats almost exclusively. Read more here...

This is an emergency, so please call and/or email your U.S. Senators IMMEDIATELY and insist they vote for free speech and AGAINST the "Disclose Act" (S. 3295). We can't let this legislation slip through our fingers again! It is just another way for government to deny Americans their freedom of speech.
