A Reasonable Legislative Procedural Change: You Amend It, You Own It

 Transparency Read this:  Occasionally we are reminded what a juvenile game politics really is.  This Mother Jones article By Kevin Drum discusses a favorite tactic.  Like children they often hide from what they do to avoid taking responsibility.  “Last week Wisconsin Republicans tried to sneak language into a budget bill that would have gutted the state’s open records law … Republicans have refused to disclose who inserted the language into the budget legislation”.  This doesn’t only happen at the state level either.  Drum’s proposal for legislative transparency is simple: “every change in every law has to be attributed to someone … no virgin birth here.”  Pretty simple huh?
