S.716 destroys STOCK Act, no peep from Rand, Amash, Cruz, others?

High-ranking federal employees will not be required to disclose financial information online, after President Obama signed an amendment to a bill that was meant to put an end to insider trading among members of Congress and government staffers.

The provisions to the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act were quietly approved by both chambers of Congress at the end of last week before being passed onto the president’s desk. The bill had previously been delayed several times before the White House announced on Monday that Obama had approved the changes.

I can't find hardly any info. It appears that wasn't even a recorded vote and it took less than a minute to pass. Sickening to say the least.
