Make corporations and unions follow the same rules

Daily Kos has come up with a great idea.  As you know the Supreme Court ruled that corporations can spend unlimited amounts of money to influence political campaigns.  Also, the Supreme Court ruled that unions had to get Opt In permission to spend union money on political campaigns.

Daily Kos has the simple idea that what is good for unions should be good for corporations.  They are collecting signatures on a petition to Senate Majority Leader Reid that reads as follows:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid,

Please introduce legislation requiring corporations to get opt-ins from shareholders to use resources for political purposes. This legislation would be a step towards limiting corporate money in politics.

Now, that’s a great idea.  Please join the Attack Democrat and sing the Daily Kos petition.  Go here:
