Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Leahy: Hey, you know, it might not be a bad idea for me to read a bill before I push for its passage!

That way, humiliating things like this wouldn’t happen:

Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.),
Chairman, Senate Judiciary Committee,
On FOIA Exemptions For The Securities And Exchange Commission
August 2, 2010

“The Freedom of Information Act is our nation’s premier open government law, and a powerful guardian of the public’s right to know. The Wall Street reform bill that has now become law makes great strides toward enhancing transparency in our financial system. However, I am concerned that an overly broad Freedom of Information Act exemption, originally drafted in the House of Representatives and which was included in the final law, is contrary to the very important goals of the Wall Street Reform bill – restoring accountability and transparency to our financial markets. The SEC should immediately issue guidance narrowly interpreting this FOIA exemption in a manner that is both consistent with the President’s policy of government transparency and with Congressional intent. I will work with the Obama administration and others in Congress to ensure that the SEC remains subject to FOIA and accountable to the American people.”

Leahy is up for re-election this year.  However, he’s a left-wing nutbar from Vermont, a state that sent open Socialist Party member Bernie Sanders to the Senate.  Keep the sap(s) coming, Maple State.

  1. Ol’ Leaky, taking a page out of Nasty’s book, that they gotta pass them bills to find out what’s in ’em.
