A corporate-sponsored inauguration -- on the very same day that marks the anniversary of the Supreme Court's infamous Citizens United ruling-fundamentally undermines your administration's efforts to rein in the damage of unlimited corporate money flooding

President Obama, Tell Corporate America Your Inauguration is NOT for Sale
Sign the Petition Urging Obama to Refuse Corporate Money for His Second Term Inauguration

Now, perhaps more than ever, the U.S. needs a president who will stand up to the legion of corporate polluters, exploiters, scammers and tax dodgers who are distorting our democracy.

But if corporate stooges close to the Obama campaign get their way, President Obama will spend the first day of his second term at lavish parties sponsored by multinational corporations like Bank of America, General Electric and Coca Cola.

President Obama should start his second term as a fighter for the people ó NOT as panderer-in-chief.

To his credit, President Obama refused to accept corporate money for his first inauguration back in 2008. It was the right decision then. And itís the right decision now.
Add Your Name Below to Urge President Obama to Refuse Corporate Contributions for His Inauguration.


We, the undersigned, call on you to refuse corporate money for all inaugural events. A corporate-sponsored inauguration ó on the very same day that marks the anniversary of the Supreme Courtís infamous Citizens United ruling ó fundamentally undermines your administrationís efforts to rein in the damage of unlimited corporate money flooding into politics caused by this court decision.

Instead, show the public that you will stand up to wealthy special interests. Refuse the corporate money, plan a modest inauguration celebration and start fighting for the people on day one.

My pleasure. BTW, I tried to send you a note within the system, asking you to let me know whether or not you got it. I believe that my old system does not allow that to work. But, did you get it?
