Have you heard about the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act that is in the Senate now? It will create a database that the public to access and see how their tax dollars are spent. The bill is stuck in committee because one senator put a "secret hold" on the bill, preventing it from coming to the floor.

Typical. Someone introduces a bill to try and make Congress more accountable to the people that elect them, and they show how much they think of us by killing the legislation. Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) has been accussed and has not denied that he is responsible. Apparently, this is his way of getting even with the author of the bill, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), who had stalled one of Stevens' projects, though, unfortunately, not the Network Neutrality bill that could create a seperate Internet for every service provider.

Why don't you drop Senator Stevens a line and thank him for all he's doing.

Remember: Re-elect no one!
