Nobody will notice. It's Income Tax Day, there's the explosions in Boston, etc. We'll never get a better opportunity to get rid of this govt-transparency requirement. Vote Yes!

Congress quietly repeals financial transparency rules for government officials - The Hill's Floor Action

Congress quietly repeals financial transparency rules for government officials

By Pete Kasperowicz - 04/12/13 12:54 PM ET

With little fanfare, the House quickly voted Friday to repeal a financial transparency requirement for senior government officials, which was part of a much-heralded government transparency bill last year.

Members passed S. 716 by unanimous consent, with no debate and no description on the floor about what the bill would do. The Senate passed it in the same fashion on Thursday.

The bill amends the Stop Trading On Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act, which was passed last year on the heels of complaints that members of Congress and senior officials are using their government knowledge to enrich themselves through stock trades or other actions.

Too late!

Any false or partially false premise extended with accurate logic will generate an approximate simulation of insanity.

YMMV

The majority of Americans will NEVER know it got reversed.
And those Congressmen and women will keep their mouths shut.
