Seven Dirty Words of the DISCLOSE Act

Jun 23, 2010

 

 

WASHINGTON, June 23 - Democrats want Americans to believe that selectively restricting free speech is "of urgent importance" to the integrity of our elections.  They ironically use words like "sunshine" and "accountability" to describe a bill undeserving of its name. However, there are important words that Democrats don't want you to use!  Below are the Seven Dirty Words* of the DISCLOSE Act that Democrats apparently don't want associated with this blatant attempt to stifle speech:   

Constitutional

Why should anybody care?  

Transparent

Do Americans really need to know how bills become law? 

Unions

Shhh, no one is supposed to talk about the advantages the bill gives unions over everyone else. 

Exemptions

Special interests so special they don't have to be regulated.  

Nonpartisan

What, election reform shouldn't be partisan? 

Deliberation

Hurry, before people realize what this bill does! 

Explanation

There won't be any, because this bill takes effect without giving the FEC time to explain how.
