Tell Your Members of Congress: No Citizens United 2.0 in the Tax Bill
Congressional Republicans are trying to use the tax bill to sneak in a measure that would be the most radical and destructive re-write of campaign finance rules since Citizens United.
Their proposal would repeal the Johnson Amendment, permitting churches and charities to engage in electoral activity — unleashing a flood of new taxpayer subsidized secret political spending into our elections.
Congressional negotiators are deciding right now whether to include this abomination in the tax bill.
