The same sloppy legislative writing that created so many unintended consequences in ObamaCare also plagues the DISCLOSE Act, the effort in Congress to tighten spending rules in the wake of the Citizens United decision — and that’s the generous take on the situation. Reason’s Bradley Smith and Jeff Patch warn that the perhaps-unintended consequences of legislative language will allow the FEC to regulate political speech online. The fact that media entities like the New York Times have specific exemptions built into the bill makes the intent, or lack thereof, rather murky:
I don't give a damn what their intentions are - the fact that Congress would even think to write a bill like this means that every bastard who is attached to it, either through sponsoring for voting "aye", needs to be impeached.
And then have the constitution tattooed backwards on their forehead, with the 1st Amendment in bold letters, so that they can read it every day.
