Hiding Your Money from You

A bill to make government spending more open to your inspection is being blocked by an anonymous Senator.

Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Barak Obama (D-IL) sponsored the bill to create searchable database that would let you see where $2.5 trillion of your dollars are going. But someone in the Senate used a secret parliamentary move to hold up the bill -- even though it passed unanimously last month. (ContraCosta Times)
