Here's a sample of what to say:

Voters deserve to know who’s spending money in our elections. That’s why President Obama should immediately issue an executive order requiring federal contractors to disclose their political spending.

REG-134417-13 Proposed Guidance for Tax-Exempt Social Welfare Organizations on Candidate-Related Political Activities

Dear [Decision Maker],

I'm deeply concerned that the IRS may allow "social welfare" 501(c)4 groups to spend up to 49% of their budgets on political campaign activities and electioneering. This would allow millions of dollars from anonymous sources into our elections.

To comply with the Internal Revenue Code, I urge the IRS to use the ongoing rulemaking process to require that these groups spend no more than an insubstantial amount of their resources on political campaign activities.
