Democrats, hoping to rein in special-interest spending before November’s midterm elections, pushed the measure, which would impose broad new disclosure rules on political spending.

When Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi said we need to pass the bill to see whats in it, It may not have been congressional mispeak. A few fact checkers are finding some interesting things about the Universal health care bill. One fact is it might not be, ‘universal’ at all.

O.K. I’m confused.. Speaker of the House said: We need to pass the health care reform bill. so that we can see whats in it. Hmmm. That new spirit of transparency is confusing.
