Obama Administration Considers Policy Designed To Silence Critics

Politico just published an article, Obama Administration Considers Move To Limit Anonymous Donations, discussing the latest moves by the Administration, Congressional Democrats and their soft money allies to silence the President’s critics in the business community.

According to the article, the White House is circulating a draft executive order that will require businesses seeking contracts with the federal government to disclose political contributions.  Of course, the disclosure requirements contained in the draft executive order do not apply to government employee labor unions or organizations receiving federal grants – traditional Democratic party allies.

More on this latest scheme designed to chill political speech later.
