KEY VOTE ALERT
“NO” on the DISCLOSE Act (S. 3369)
The Club for Growth urges all Senators to vote “NO” on the DISCLOSE Act (S. 3369) scheduled for consideration next week. The vote on cloture, and on final passage if it comes to that, will be included in the Club’s 2012 Congressional Scorecard.
This bill is an attempt to massively infringe upon the First Amendment rights of American citizens.
This bill seeks to apply costly disclosure and compliance regulations that restrict political free speech. Some of the regulations would target corporations and non-profit groups, but largely ignore unions. These restrictions, and their inequitable treatment, fly in the face of what should be universal protection of free speech.
If this bill passes into law, it will further protect the incumbents who continue to pass such unconstitutional legislation. We strongly urge a “NO” vote.
Our Congressional Scorecard for the 112th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
