Private Republican campaign fund-raising groups are concealing their donors from the public because the GOP does not trust American voters to handle the information. Republican operatives want to shield voters from knowing who is actually paying for GOP attack ads. The GOP fears the consequences if Americans know the truth – exactly which giant corporations and Wall Street banksters are funding vicious screeds against Democrats because those covert donors believe Republicans will deliver for big business.

This week Republicans made a Pledge to America in a bid to win votes in the mid-term elections. The GOP promised to indulge the rich with tax breaks and penalize the middle class with rescinded health care benefits and eliminated regulations protecting workers.

Peter Orszag, who apparently was the most conservative of them all (and who just lobbied for more tax cuts for the rich), has left his position as head of the Office of Management and Budget. Larry Summers is leaving his position as director of National Economic Council. Rahm Emanuel might be out by October. And Tim Geithner is also rumored to be leaving after the election.
