Campaign Donation Bill Stalls in Senate (What Else is New?)

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Tuesday refused to take up a bill that would require more disclosure of the role of corporations, unions and other special interests in bankrolling political advertisements, after Democrats failed to persuade even one Republican to support it.

The bill was drafted in response to a Supreme Court decision in January allowing unlimited campaign spending by corporations and interest groups.

President Obama and Democratic leaders have been seeking to use the Republicans’ opposition to the bill to portray them as beholden to corporate interests. Republicans, in turn, say the Democrats drafted the legislation in an effort to gain an advantage in this year’s midterm elections.

I say Republicans lose on this one. Seems to me the country, with all sort of people of different idealogical persuasions, want MORE transparency and not less (unless you're the one on the take).
