netizencain: The bill is flawed... "She warned that applying a warrant requirement to the SEC would impede the agency's "ability to protect investors and to assist victims of securities fraud."

Seems that the bill doesn't need to be rushed through with mistakes... just address the SEC's concerns.  Done.

Chewb1zz: tenpoundsofcheese: Anonymous hold is the issue I was referring to.
Isn't Reid in charge of the Senate?
Doesn't Obama have even the slightest bit of influence on Reid? I thought he cared about transparency?

Except whichever republican put the hold on the bill only has to inform the leader of his/her party. So not Reid, but McConnell. Senate works under the concept of unanimous consent.

You're trying to explain the rules of the Senate to someone who can't even grasp the rules to Candyland? Good luck with that.
