The theme of the health care debate in Washington has quickly become secrecy. Despite repeated promises from then-candidate Obama, Speaker Pelosi and others have said that there would be an unprecedented focus on transparent and open deliberations. Unfortunately, the reality has been a strong trend in exactly the opposite direction.
All along on the health care legislative front, there have been glaring transparency problems such as committee votes before the bill under consideration is even written, numerous last minute changes, and middle of the night votes.
Now, as Congress enters the final stage of negotiation on a measure to restructure 1/6 of the U.S. economy, the process has again moved behind closed doors. President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Reid, and House Speaker Pelosi have begun final negotiations on the health care bill behind closed doors. This clearly violates previous promises of open and transparent negotiations.
As you can read here, C-SPAN has sent a letter requesting that the Congressional leadership permit the broadcasting of these final health care negotiations. So far, this request has not been granted.
What is Congress hiding? Why not open-up the process and let the American people see for themselves what's taking place with this health care reform? Where's the transparency?
It's important for the American people to see this process and the effort to fast-track a government run, pro-abortion measure that will affect the lives of every American.
