Kenneth Vogel writes in Politico that President Obama is “considering a number of measures to compel disclosure of the kind of anonymous campaign contributions that helped finance millions of dollars of attack ads against Democrats during the 2010 elections.”
These measures appear broad in scope:
"The White House last week began circulating a draft executive order that would require companies seeking government contracts to disclose contributions — including those that otherwise would have been secret — to groups that air political ads attacking or supporting candidates."

In a speech Wednesday, Mr. Obama will propose cuts to entitlement programs, including Medicare and Medicaid, and changes to Social Security, a discussion he has largely left to Democrats and Republicans in Congress. He also will call for tax increases for people making over $250,000 a year, a proposal contained in his 2012 budget, and changing parts of the tax code he thinks benefit the wealthy.
"Every corner of the federal government has to be looked at here," David Plouffe, a senior White House adviser, said Sunday in one of multiple television appearances. "Revenues are going to have to be part of this," he said, referring to tax increases.
Until now, Mr. Obama has been largely absent from the raging debate over the long-term deficit. The White House has done little with the recommendations of its own bipartisan deficit commission. And Mr. Obama's 2012 budget didn't offer many new ideas for tackling entitlement spending, among the biggest long-term drains on the federal budget.

Obama Puts Taxes on Table
But Trump has achieved something important. His decision to focus like a laser on Obama's failure to produce a birth certificate has highlighted the absolute corruption of the American media on the subject of Obama, and the dangers of power granted in the absence of an unaligned press.
Given that Obama's primary claim to the presidency has been his compelling life story -- his biracialism, his international upbringing, especially the time he spent in Muslim lands -- the media has shown shockingly little interest in several pieces of information about Obama's life which might legitimately concern voters. Nowhere in his biographies, for example, does Obama mention his 1981 trip to Pakistan, where he stayed with influential political leaders from that country at a time when a State Department advisory warned U.S. citizens against travel to Pakistan. There has also been a strange disinterest in Obama's 2006 trip to Kenya where, as a sitting U.S. senator, Obama criticized the incumbent government (a U.S. ally) and barnstormed with a Marxist candidate he supported. So too, there has been nary a peep among media elites over Obama's funding of the radical "education" work of bomb thrower Bill Ayers, or his own work on behalf of the activist group ACORN, the now defunct largest purveyor of voter registration fraud in American history (and, apparently, an enabler of under aged prostitution.).

STATES OF REBELLION
How legislators and governors nationwide are challenging a rogue president

While millions of outraged Americans protest what they see as a lawless and power-mad Obama administration, many wonder how much clout individuals can really have in reining in a wildly out-of-control government.
But suppose, in addition to citizens with little power beyond their vote, those standing up to the federal government were named Virginia, Texas, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Tennessee, Montana, Maine, South Dakota – and many more?
Incredibly, though under-reported by the establishment press, that's exactly what is happening right now, as the April issue of Whistleblower documents in-depth, in "STATES OF REBELLION: How legislators and governors nationwide are openly challenging a rogue president."

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Republican's 2012 budget plan will cut the deficit by more than $4 trillion over the next decade and will exceed goals of a presidential deficit commission, Representative Paul Ryan said on Sunday.
Ryan, chairman of the House of Representatives Budget Committee, said his budget blueprint, which will be released on Tuesday, will include deficit cuts that go further than the $4 trillion proposed by the commission.
"We're looking at more than that right now," he said on "Fox News Sunday." "We're fine tuning our numbers with the Congressional Budget Office literally today ... but we're going to be cutting a lot more than that."
"We will be exceeding the goals presented by the president's debt commission," he said. "By cutting spending, reforming our entitlements and growing our economy."
The deficit commission late last year backed a series of bold proposals to cut the deficit by $4 trillion over a decade by trimming tax breaks, raising the retirement age for Social Security and other politically unpopular proposals.
Ryan said his plan would put caps on discretionary spending over the next five years.
The Republican said his proposal would also tackle Medicare and Medicaid, programs for the retired and the poor, though he said the changes would not impact anyone already over retirement age.
Ryan's budget proposal will come as Republicans and Democrats are still trying to agree on the budget for the current fiscal year.
Lawmakers have taken the government to the brink of a shutdown as they struggle to reconcile a Republican plan that would cut $61 billion from the current budget with a Democratic plan that would keep spending essentially flat.
The two sides have tentatively agreed to a cut of $33 billion, the largest domestic spending reduction in U.S. history and a big victory for Republicans. Lawmakers are trying to reach agreement before April 8 when the U.S. government will run out of cash when a short-term funding measure expires.
