Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) issued the following statement:
"Bills like this are the reason why people dislike Washington politicians. The DISCLOSE Act is sold as a bill to promote fairness and transparency, but it was designed to exempt some of the most powerful special interests. Clearly, this was not a good faith effort to enact campaign finance reform. In Massachusetts, I'm proud to have set a much higher standard on curbing outside money with The People's Pledge."
