In this non-election year, officials of the Dealers  Election Action Committee reported March 31 that DEAC had raised 23.6 percent of its yearlong contributions goal. But contributions by dealers in what the NADA defines as metropolitan Chicago-Cook, Lake and DuPage Counties-were at 7.2 percent of the annual goal amount. DEAC is a dealer's only true voice in Washington, and it needs support to retain its powerful presence; in the 2001-2002 election cycle DEAC was the nation's third largest political action committee in terms of contributions to federal candidates. Since the inception of DEAC in 1975, dealers have contributed more than $22 million to the election campaigns of pro-business, pro-dealer candidates for Congress. Contributions to DEAC pay for themselves many times over in the form of better, fairer government on the federal level. Think of DEAC as political insurance: Contribute now, or pay 10 times that amount later in the form of higher taxes, excessive regulations and mandated employee benefits.
