Republicans Block The Disclose Act

Republicans successfully filibustered the Disclose Act this week. Once again, they have shown themselves to be hypocrites. On one hand they criticize the corrupt insider deal-making nature of Washington D.C. yet they don't want the public to know who is bankrolling Republican political ads. That would screw up their entire program of deceiving the American people.

But the bill isn't completely dead yet. It could come back for consideration later in the year. However, passing this legislation will be an uphill climb.
