Coming in this morning, I heard an ad on AM from Consumers Union (the people who do Consumers Reports), supporting fixing health care NOW. OK, granted, they didn’t say HOW to fix it. But in the current climate, the ad could only be interpreted as a call to pass the laws now in Congress.
This ad identified CU as a non-profit. Now, what I don’t know about nonprofit law could fill a book (in spite of me having been President of one), but I’m pretty clear that political lobbying is not permitted, and this is pretty clearly lobbying. They brag about it here.
Hey, Jim Guest, how does it feel to have just flushed your organization’s credibility down the toilet?
