It's a crock of shit like everything else these clowns do.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

Bama raked in 745 million in campaign funds. Most of it came in from private internet donations under $200.

Basically, corporations don't have to hide the donations now.

Well we might have every republican campaign sponsored by ExxonMobile... Between cap & trade and the proposed oil and gas tax law changes under Obama I would guess they have a vested interest... haha

But really it doesn't change anything, the money will still come from the same places, it might just make for a little more transparency (I doubt it)

The funding regulations are still there, it just enforced free speech
