O probably can't do it because it would threaten "national security."

So you expect the guy who is shooting for $1 billion in spending money to sign this?

Sounds unlikely.

OK, this is absolutely one that I will get behind and support!

Nancy drained the swamp? An assistant secretary at the Department of Labor has resigned after an internal investigation found that he improperly steered federal contracts to friends and former colleagues.

Raymond Jefferson, who headed the department's Veterans Employment and Training Service since 2009, used his position to coerce or intimidate other employees to make the awards without open competition, according to a July 21 report by the agency's acting inspector general, Daniel Petrole.

Jefferson resigned his post on Tuesday, Labor Department spokesman Carl Fillichio said.

We need better central planning, not less.

I do not really care about this as long it is done it a way that does not favor the unions or corporations.
09:17 PM on 07/28/2011
It can only favor the people, since with more transparency, we would be able to make better decisions.

I do not feel that anybody should be silenced. There is this freedom of speech issue, and when the government starts saying what views can or cannot be expressed, and then we have given up one of our very basic freedoms. Six major companies, such as the Disney Corporation, Time Warner, and CBS, control 90% of the U.S. media market, and they also help shape the views of people. It is up to each person to figure out why they want to vote, and for whom. Some people will vote for who makes them comfortable, but this happens on both sides.

Are the Democrates disfunctional to even think of asking the President to do this?

You should care as cheap labor just may affect your household also. It may also affect your future not only for you but your children and parents.

Can we say cheaper labor via more unfair trade agreements and the Chamber of horors influence using foreign monies?

I certainly hope this passes. If these people have something to hide, it's probably not something good and apparently they have a pretty strong influence over our lawmakers. Something like this sounds like it could be a pretty good blow to political and corporate corruption in this country and perhaps beyond.

From Jim Hightower on this subject
Post 2 of 2 with a link to where we can add our signatures too:

The Chamber's lobbyist cries that if corporate giants actually have to tell us what they're doing, We the People might launch protests against them. And we can't allow that in a democracy, can we?
Methinks these whiners protesteth too much. If they're going to steal our government and loot our treasury, let's at least unmask them. The watchdog group, Public Citizen, has a petition calling on Obama to issue this long-overdue disclosure order. To sign the petition, go to www.citizen.org/disclosure-petition.

Here's a post from Jim Hightower and a link where we can add our signatures too...
Post 1 of 2:

"Poor Halliburton. Poor ExxonMobil, Blackwater, Microsoft, and other huge corporations that get billions of dollars each year in lucrative contracts from our government.
These political powers are presently wailing that they're being picked on by meanies in the Obama White House who're proposing to expose one of their most sensitive corporate secrets: the amount of cash they surreptitiously funnel into our elections through such front groups as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The Obamacans have drafted an executive order requiring these recipients of our tax dollars to disclose how much money they're putting into which campaigns. Such honest disclosure can help us taxpayers and voters see for ourselves whether the political efforts of connected corporations might result in them receiving government contracts as payback from grateful recipients of their cash.
But, oh, the squeals of outrage from CEOs, lobbyists, and front groups! "We will fight it through all available means," screeched the chief lobbyists for the Chamber, calling the anti-corruption plan an attempt to stifle the free speech of corporations. Uh... no sir. Corporate money could still speak – even shout – but the public has a right to know the noisy speaker's name. It turns out, though, that the public is really what they fear. "

Good luck!! I think you'd have a better chance at ending ALL military conflicts in foreign lands, and bringing the troops home, before something like this being made available to the public?
