Democrats Seek Disclosure On Political Ads

Apr 30, 2010 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.npr.org

Two Republicans are joining with congressional Democrats on new legislation to force disclosure of corporate money in politics. House and Senate versions of the bill were rolled out Thursday, nearly four months after a Supreme Court decision that gives corporations and unions the First Amendment right to spend unlimited amounts on campaign advertising.

The Kosher Nostra Israeli lobby that promotes the Military - Imperialist Complex and the Zionist Fifth Column should disclose how much was paid for Judges Tom Porteous , Jay Bybee , Stan Marcus and Avigdor Spechler .......... Let's have CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM to curtail the CHAMBER OF COMMERCE and its JUDGE PIMPING - ROBE MUNCHING JAMBOREES at PAYONEERS.

It should also be public knowledge as to what shares and what businesses these politicians own...... Once you start looking at how the numbers connect, it all really begins to make a lot of F*ing sense!

"Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said the bill's disclosure requirements would apply to corporations and unions and to front groups that finance negative ad campaigns.

"If you're going to run these ads, you should have to disclose, no matter who you are," Schumer said."

Why stop at "negative ads, why not DISCLOSE WHO PAYS FOR ALL ADS? That way people can see just WHO is buying ALL OF THEM?

I'm OK with this as long as both sides play by the same rules. I still have a problem with Obama and his back pocket unions though.
