There they go again... According to Roll Call, the Democrat House Leadership is planning to move the free-speech restricting "DISCLOSE" Act again. The latest information indicates that they will be moving for a vote tomorrow (Thursday).
The story quotes a Democrat aide saying that "Leadership is confident we'll have the votes".
They ran into some trouble last week after complaints from the Black Caucus over a special deal that the leadership cut with the NRA to get their support, but now it seems they're back on board.
The bottom line is this bill is BAD for free speech. It's BAD for anyone who believes individuals and groups of Americans should be able to speak out on the issues they care about and exercise our 1st Amendment rights.
It was written by Democrats looking to RE-restrict corporations (including non-profit, issue advocacy groups) from spending their own money to speak out in the political arena - after the Supreme Court struck down a previous law that did the same exact thing. What's worse is their new version doesn't RE-restrict the same behavior by unions, which is no coincidence.
