Americans Have Right to Know If Secret Corporate and Potential Foreign Contributions Are Tied to Outsourcing of Jobs

News reports continue to roll in about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s possible use of funds from foreign interests and foreign governments, in addition to various corporate interests, to influence Americans. Americans have a right to know if these contributions are tied to outsourcing of jobs.

Why is the Chamber so vigorously refusing to disclose the sources of its funding?

Perhaps it’s because they support shipping American jobs overseas:

Tom Donohue, U.S. Chamber CEO:
The bottom line – outsourcing has made the manufacturing process more efficient and productive…the Chamber strongly believes manufacturing and service companies alike should have the freedom and flexibility to source and trade across our country-and around the world.

Bruce Josten, U.S. Chamber Executive Vice President:
Replacing a job that is based in another country with a domestic job does not stimulate economic growth or enhance the competitiveness of American worldwide companies.
