HEADLINE: The following was posted to the White House Blog by Dan Pfeiffer, White House Communications Director.

“What Do They Expect in Return?/October 22, 2010 at 02:27 PM EDT

“Ever since the Citizens United ruling opened the floodgates to unlimited and
undisclosed special interest and corporate spending in our elections,
President Obama has repeatedly <http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2010/07/26/president-obama-citizens-united-imagine-power-will-give-special-interests-over-polit> warned <http://articles.latimes.com/2010/oct/08/nation/la-na-1009-hidden-donors-20101009> that these undisclosed contributions will give special interests even more power over politicians. And, with that power, they plan to return to the days when lobbyists wrote the laws in Washington to benefit special interests at the expense of the American people.

“The President fought hard to block this troubling development by repeatedly
calling on Congress to pass the DISCLOSE Act -- legislation that would
establish the strongest-ever disclosure requirements for election-related
spending by special interests. But Congressional Republicans blocked every
attempt we made to put our democracy back where it belongs -- in the hands
of the American people. Their opposition wasnıt rooted in policy
differences, because theyıve supported <http://www.kentucky.com/2010/08/01/1372068/mcconnells-hypocrisy-on-campaign.html> this type of legislation in the past. ...

“The New York Times reported today that one Texas billionaire alone has given
at least $13 million <http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/22/us/politics/22perry.html?_r=1&hp> ... .”

BETWEEN THE LINES:

It’s interesting that there is such concern about a certain "Texas billionaire," but all the money from another billionaire, George Soros, doesn't seem to bother them in the least.

As for DISCLOSE, it SHREDS our Constitution. Read this from Newsmax.com:

"The Disclose Act that House Democrats passed Thursday would "shred" the
U.S. Constitution and represents a "blatant partisan maneuver to protect
their incumbency," according to U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice
President R. Bruce Josten.

"In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, Josten says the Disclose Act,
which passed by a 219 to 206 margin, reveals just how much Democrats fear
the nation's rising anti-incumbent fervor ... ."
