Disclosure Act: Talk About Writing that Sells
The creative power of congressional writers never ceases to amaze. They've labeled a bill the Disclosure Act, when in actuality it serves to obscure donations from the biggest contributors to political campaigns. Big players like the NRA, Labor Unions, and AARP get a pass on campaign contribution disclosure while grass roots movements are forced to maintain full transparency.

I think a real disclosure bill is a great thing. One that forces every organization, regardless of size to disclose their contributions. But that would be too much transparency for most of America's congressional representatives.
