That can't be true! Democratic Senators demanded Mitt Romney disclose more financial information and were all about more public disclosure!

Move along folks, nothing to see here. Back to our regularly scheduled programming: Did you hear who got voted off "Dancing with the Stars" last night? Meanwhile, somebody somewhere said something mildly racist so we'll have wall-to-wall coverage on that in a few minutes followed by a panel discussion hosted by the Rev. Al Sharpton and Bill Maher.

I think that's the best course of action regardless of what you believe, what party you support, what agendas are important to you. No matter who's in power, vote for the other guy. Can't be any worse than what we've got now. Damn lying, cheating, bastards.

Vote For The Other Guy.

The campaign slogan to end all campaign slogans.

Remember it was 60 minutes that made this a cause celebre with a scathing report about insider trading by congress critters. I wonder if there will be a peep out the media now. My guess is no, since the Messiah signed off on it. I hope I'm wrong, but we'll see.

But yet you ignored the fact that the bill went through Congress which also went unopposed and republican controlled. Face it, all of them are crooks from the president down to the senators/congressmen the "Rs" verses the "Ds" is an arguement fit for fools.

Most presidents voluntarily disclose previous tax returns, Romney supplied 2 while his father supplied around 10 years. This law required public disclosure of investments for congressmen, not their tax returns.

Every congressmen and many government officials are required to provide annual disclosure and conflicts of interest, making them public is another entire issue.

ALL elected officials in Washington are still covered.

It's just Senior public employee's that the ammendment covered.

That being stated If you make above 100,000 in government your financials should be posted for all the world to see.

My understanding is that it passed by unanimous consent meaning they are all crooks.
