Demand the Senate not confirm any more corporate lobbyists -- in this or any future administration.

Corporate executives and lobbyists have a habit of working their way into powerful positions within the U.S. government. Such appointees are riddled with conflicts of interest that do not benefit the U.S. public.

Trump’s administration, for example, has appointed 281 lobbyists!

Click here to demand that Congress oppose the confirmation of any nominee to a government position who is currently or has been a lobbyist for any corporate client or officer for a private corporation.

Installing corporate chums in the Cabinet and government agencies provides them easy access to undermine protections for everyday people in favor of giveaways and rollbacks for big business. A significant majority -- 76 percent -- of the U.S. public supports ending this practice.

Congressional progressive leaders led by Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona this month sent a letter to Senate leadership urging opposition to Senate confirmation of corporate lobbyists and C-suite level corporate executives.

Sign the petition: No more conflicts of interest that benefit big business! No more corporate appointees!
