    "Get the money out" means "get the money out". Where do you see anything that exempts unions? This isn't about who gives what, necessarily, but to fight the notions that "Money=Free Speech" or "Corporations(or Unions)=People".

    Would this also apply to unions, private and public sector? How about private groups like the NRA...oh wait, we hate the NRA...like Planned Parenthood? What about green companies like Solyndra, would their money also be restricted? Hollywood and entertainment companies are among the Dems biggest contributors. Will we also be restricting donations from Dreamworks Animation ($2,139,650) or Comcast Corp ($1,151,580)?

    Are unions and corporations not groups of people working towards a common goal? If free speech is sacrosanct, why is where I choose to spend my money not? One can express their opinion with a letter, a speech, or a vote...and voting with your dollar is perhaps the most powerful freedom of all. I'll pass on your petition.

    Isn't the title self-explanatory? How about the the petition and website? To most English-speakers "get the money out" means "get the money out". To put it more simply, wouldn't it be better if our representitives spent more time on OUR business, instead of running around selling their votes to the highest bidder?!?!

    When some can vote with millions through pacts and others can vote only through a single pull of the lever it gimicks the system.

    I dont agree , unless you also concede that Unions have too much influence on politics and plan to sign a similar petition blocking the union money from hitting democrat coffers this year.
    The only reason the left is in an uproar over this is because the GOP now has a way to get some cash flow going for themselves, where the left has always had union money coming to them. It's almost fair now, and you guys dont like it.
