Make corporations get permission from shareholders to spend money on politics
In the Citizens United era, CEOs and executives of publicly traded corporations will spend hundreds of millions on the 2012 elections. The Shareholder Protection Act helps curb the corporate agenda of these CEOs by empowering shareholders to vote on whether to spend company money on political campaigns.
Passing the Shareholder Protection Act is within the realm of legislative possibility. It already has 12 co-sponsors in the U.S. Senate, and 49 in the U.S. House.
Daily Kos and Public Citizen are building momentum to pass the Shareholder Protection Act by increasing the number of co-sponsors for the bill. Please, join with Daily Kos and Public Citizen by sending an email to your U.S. senators, asking them to become co-sponsors of the Shareholder Protection Act.
