Welcome to MillionairesforProp75.com, a web site dedicated to shining a light on the billionaires, millionaires and CEOs bankrolling Proposition 75, a deceptive measure on California's November special election ballot.
Prop. 75 was designed and bankrolled by these corporate and right-wing heavy weights to silence the voices of workers in the political process to make it easier for Governor Schwarzenegger to pass his harmful agenda: cutting school funding, harming health care, and putting public safety at risk.
First they tried to hide their names by funneling money through a secret committee, now they are trying to hide behind the fake name "Teachers, firefighters, and law enforcement" for Prop. 75.
Workers didn't put Prop. 75 on the ballot and bankroll the campaign, these guys did. We've laid the truth out right here in green and white:
Meet The Newest Members of the Club
U.S. Chamber of Commerce
|U.S. Chamber of Commerce of Washington, D.C. contributed $250,000 to Yes on 75 on October 19th. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has filed numerous Amicus Briefs in anti-union court cases on behalf of anti-worker organizations like the National Right to Work Foundation and the Associated Builders and Contractors (who also gave to Yes on 75). The Chamber has a long record of working against California employees by supporting the restriction of card checks and is a very big fan of paycheck protection. In 1998, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce "sent a mass-mailing to its California members" in support of Prop. 226.
