    And then they're all going to go on tv and bash Obama for not being transparent enough for their liking, lol. Another day in DC.

    Has nothing to do with party, neither of the majors actually want transparency. It was one of Obama's major campaign lies, his broken promise and one that disappointed me the most.

    Are you implying that Democraps and Repugnantcans could have agreed behind closed doors to let this legislation fail?

    Shocking, just shocking.

    ... while defending Romney's refusal to disclose more than two tax returns....
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Re: DISCLOSE Act fails again in Senate

    So, a bill failed in the Democratically dominated Senate?

    Let's blame those evil Republicans.

    Why would we blame Republicans? Because the majority of Republcans voted Nay and the majority of Democrats voted Yea?

    Yep.

    Did you ever look into their reasoning behind their votes? Or did you just take this to mean that "Republicans are evil and hate transparency."
