From the story:
“An unidentified senator placed a “secret hold” on legislation introduced by Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Barack Obama, D-Ill., that would create a searchable database of government contracts, grants, insurance, loans and financial assistance, worth $2.5 trillion last year. The database would bring transparency to federal spending and be as simple to use as conducting a Google search.”
So yeah — Nobody knows who did it….and until the “Mystery Senator” releases the hold, it will never come up for a vote.
Government of the people, for the people and by the people….my ass.
