I haven't taken the time to figure it out for myself, so I can't offer an opinion as to whether the proposed law is being fairly characterized. Levin and McCain is an odd alliance though, in any case.

http://www.ted.com/talks/dave_meslin_the_antidote_to_apathy.html I like this talk because, and as I have previously believed, that it isn't that people don't care about who gets elected. It is that when they try to make a difference, nonsensical rules and regulations, ridiculous policies stop them from getting it done. And I also think that mainstream media has found a way to suppress anyone who tries to change the world. This has got to stop!! We have got to give them feedback, correspond with their advertisers, and demand the things we want to see and read from them.
If there's anyone left who doesn't believe that bankers and the monied class are criminals, they stole $7.77 Trillion from us around 2 years ago and tried to keep it secret.
