U.S. Chamber of Commerce Calls on Congress to Grant Corporations a License to Steal from American Taxpayers

Corporations will stop at nothing to hide their wrongdoing from the public, but they often can’t hide it from their employees. Because of their access to information, whistleblowers are among the best resources to hold corporations accountable when they steal from American taxpayers by defrauding the U.S. Government.

As usual, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its corporate backers are attempting to grant themselves another license to steal by calling on Congress to weaken the False Claims Act – the law that whistleblowers rely on to hold corporations accountable.

Today, the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice will allow the U.S. Chamber to peddle its misinformation in a hearing titled “Oversight of the False Claims Act.” The hearing will be held at 1:00 p.m. ET, and can be viewed live here: http://thomas.loc.gov/video/house-committee/hsju00

Today’s hearing follows a U.S. Chamber report released last year calling for this important system to be weakened to the point that it will be rendered meaningless.

American taxpayers cannot afford to lose billions to corporate fraud. Read more about this issue here: http://takejusticeback.com/whistleblowers.
