The TEA PARTY WINS ANOTHER ONE

DISCLOSE ACT WENT DOWN IN FLAMES

The DISCLOSE Act did not pass (vote was 57-41). The POWER OF THE Tea Party’s voice was heard.

Senate Republicans narrowly blocked Democratic campaign finance disclosure legislation in the Senate yesterday after raising concerns the bill would curb freedom of speech and tilt campaign spending in favor of the Democrats.

The bill would require organizations paying for political advertising to disclose the names of their top donors in the ads, similar to what now is required of political candidates for federal office.

Republicans accused Democrats of trying to preserve their majorities in the House and Senate by skewing the rules in the favor of labor unions, trial lawyers, and other Democratic-leaning groups.

Democrats "fear the righteous judgment of the American TEA PARTY in this coming election," warned Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who spearheads the Senate Republicans’ election effort. "So they’re trying to change the rules in the middle of the game to suppress the speech of those who might disagree" with them.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, slammed the bill as a "partisan effort, pure and simple .. This bill is about protecting incumbent Democrats from criticism ahead of this November’s election," he said. It’s an "all-out assault on the First Amendment."

A GREAT day for Democracy!
