    You left some important stuff out of your diary. Besides the fact it was determined that the provision, as applied to a large number of federal employees could be an actual danger to them, the provisions were not lifted for the electeds and other high federal officials.

    Under the new law, the beefed-up reporting requirements will still apply to the president, vice president, members of Congress and candidates for Congress. Some presidentially nominated and Senate-confirmed government employees would also still adhere to the new disclosure requirement.
    Either you knee-jerked without reading all the way through, or you were being deliberately misleading.

      I'm sick and tired of answering the same wrong comments over and over again.

      either read through the whole diary and the sources, or just stop misrepresenting what i've wrote based on a skim-through, okay?

      i didn't "leave important stuff out" and i didn't say that president, congress, candidates would not be subject to disclosures.

      you have just engaged in a knee-jerk reaction and a deliberate misrepresentation of the diary i've written.

      Deficits don't matter, jobs do.
