Love Senator Whitehouse! He fought hard for this bill and I appreciate his efforts. Too bad there were so many against disclosure, it was able to be blocked. Just shows how unethical and greedy most of our elected officials are.

What seriously bothered me about this vote is that Harry Reid voted with the Republicans but yet criticized them for filibustering it. He was the only Democrat to vote "No".

Here's the link to the vote results...

I am still checking this, but alot of times, Harry Reid will vote no if he doesn't have the votes to move forward so they can represent it once they have the votes without the waiting period. I have to get the information on it and I will post.
