The 2nd Vote scores of several major companies are all being lowered to a 1 due to donations to the Center for American Progress. The Center for American Progress (CAP) and its corresponding advocacy arm, the Center for American Progress Action Fund (CAP Action), are two significant entities in the left-wing policy and message machine. Using the institutional front of CAP’s “think tank” and CAP Action’s blog ThinkProgress, CAP’s directors and funders attempt to shift national policy debates leftward.
CAP’s policy positions of note include favor for increased taxes, a carbon tax on businesses, union-backed card checks, Obamacare, 2nd Amendment restrictions, late-term abortion, same-sex marriage, and anti-Israel rhetoric.
The 2nd Vote scores of the companies listed below have been lowered to an overall one because by donating to CAP, they have a lowered score in every single category that 2nd Vote scores on.
Donations to CAP from corporations include: AT&T, Bank of America, CitiGroup, Coca-Cola, CVS, Comcast NBC Universal, Facebook, Microsoft, PepsiCo, Time Warner, Toyota, Walmart, Visa, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, Samsung, T-Mobile and Wells Fargo.
We have a responsibility as customers of these companies to hold our dollars accountable. Let these companies know you don’t appreciate that the money that you give to them when you’re shopping goes towards supporting organizations like the Center for American Progress.
