Kill Harry Reid's "Disclose Act."

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

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)

The fact is, Big Labor's cronies on Capitol Hill are just days away from ramming the "Disclose Act" down the throats of the American people.

In fact, this dangerous bill has already passed the House.

Though the so-called "Disclose Act" is being sold by Big Labor as a bill to provide greater transparency, its real intent is to harass and intimidate those who might criticize members of Congress into silence during the midterm elections and beyond.

Big Labor doesn't want us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to inform the American people which candidates stand with them -- and which ones stand with the union elite.

But, of course, like all the other insider games here in Washington, there is a big loophole.

You see, Big Labor is exempted.

They'll still be free to spend their BILLION dollar forced-dues war chest in virtually any way they see fit in complete secrecy.

If passed, the so-called "Disclose Act" -- more properly referred to as the "Incumbent Protection Act" -- would:

  • Impose sweeping new regulations on organizations like the National Right to Work Committee, to keep them quiet and cripple their effectiveness during election years;
  • Force grassroots organizations to publicize and release the names of their top five contributors making them vulnerable to threats, intimidation or worse from political dissidents;
  • Require organizations to expose the location of their top donor's home and workplace in the disclaimer at the end of every television ad.

I hope you know I would shut the doors of the Committee in a heart beat rather than give the union bosses the name of even one of our members.

That's why it's vital you act IMMEDIATELY!

You and I have come too far and, I believe, are too close to victory to be shut down by one of Big Labor's dirty legislative tricks.

So please help me fight back today!

That's why I ask you to take a stand for freedom of speech, your rights and your National Right to Work Committee and to contact your U.S. Senators and insist they vote for free speech and against the so-called "Disclose Act" (S. 3295).

The so-called "Disclose Act" is too dangerous to ignore. Please act TODAY!

Sincerely,

Mark Mix

P.S. The union bosses know they are running out of options to save their handpicked politicians before the November Elections. That's why they are going all out to silence you and me.

Please take a moment to contact your U.S. Senators and insist they vote for free speech and against the so-called "Disclose Act" (S. 3295).

P.P.S. The fact is opposition from freedom-oriented groups like your National Right to Work Committee had the "Disclose Act" bottled up in the House of Representatives until the National Rifle Association cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to exempt itself and a few large liberal groups. This is all the more reason you must stand up and make your voice heard in the Senate right away.

The National Right to Work Committee is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, single-purpose citizens' organization dedicated to combating compulsory unionism through an aggressive program designed to mobilize public opposition to compulsory unionism and, at the same time, enlist public support for Right to Work legislation. The Committee's mailing address is 8001 Braddock Road, Springfield, Virginia 22160. The Committee can be contacted toll-free at 1-800-325-7892. Its web address is http://nrtwc.org/

To help the National Right to Work Committee grow, please forward this to a friend.
