GOP gets busted trying to sneak provision

Calling it a big mistake, red-faced Republicans say they'll swiftly repeal a measure allowing tax returns to be disclosed without penalty.

This after Congress passed a massive spending bill containing a provision to give two committee chairman and their assistants access to income tax returns without regard to privacy protections.

The Senate immediately and unanimously adopted a resolution saying the provision "shall have no effect." House leaders promised to pass the resolution next Wednesday.

Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Ted Stevens called it "a serious situation," saying he and House

Appropriations Committee Chairman Bill Young were unaware the measure had been inserted in the bill.
But some Democrats don't believe it was a mistake and are demanding an investigation

I don't buy for one second this measure was an oversight, instead it was yet another grab for power by this Administration to undermine what freedoms we have left.
