Demand to know why someone on the House Armed Services Committee received a $500,000 “bonus” from a weapons manufacturer

Our investigative news team at Republic Report broke this story late last week. The giant defense manufacturer Northrop Grumman gave one of its lobbyists a half-million dollar bonus right before he left to serve on the congressional committee that oversees defense budgets.
In fact, it was Republic Report’s research that got Senator Blumenthal riled up. He’s demanding answers and making national headlines. Now it’s our job to follow up on their great work and put some muscle behind this effort. We’re sending signatures from thousands of Americans to Blumenthal’s office, supporting the inquisition.

Add your name and then share this page with as many people as you can.

Together, we can get Tom MacKenzie fired. This is a clear conflict of interest and it should be stopped.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
