Does Your Phone Company Fight the Right?
Take Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who launched an all-out anti-union assault to revoke collective bargaining rights for Wisconsin's teachers, nurses and other state workers. Guess which phone company was a top 10 PAC contributor to Gov. Walker's 2010 campaign? AT&T.AT&T and Verizon Wireless both contributed toSenator Scott Brown of Massachusetts, who pushed through loopholes in last year's financial reform bill that allow big banks to continue risky investment practices. And Verizon Wireless and AT&T have funded House Tea Party Caucus founder Rep. Michele Bachmann, who cosponsored H.R. 358, which would let hospitals receiving federal funding allow a woman to die rather than perform a life-saving abortion.
Workers' rights. Consumer protections. A woman's right to choose. Progressive values are under attack by the radical right at the local, state and federal levels. Has your phone company funded politicians leading these assaults? You might be surprised to learn the answer.
