What’s wrong with C-SPAN? Do they think this is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people? Silly C-SPAN.
The head of C-SPAN has implored Congress to open up the last leg of health care reform negotiations to the public, as top Democrats lay plans to hash out the final product among themselves.
C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb wrote to leaders in the House and Senate Dec. 30 urging them to open “all important negotiations, including any conference committee meetings,” to televised coverage on his network.
“The C-SPAN networks will commit the necessary resources to covering all of the sessions LIVE and in their entirety,” he wrote.
In a Tuesday afternoon press conference on health legislation negotiations, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to object to the premise behind the request.
“There has never been a more open process for any legislation in anyone who’s served here’s experience,” she said.
I’d like to know where the outrage is on this one. There is nothing that the government should be doing that should be done in secret. These are supposed to be our representatives, so how can someone represent you without you knowing what they are saying on your behalf?
Of course, this post is all rhetorical. It’s obvious that our government, no matter which party is in charge, is not representing the people. They are conspiring in secret, because they are conspiring on how to stay in power. They want to setup a structure where you are at the mercy of them. Oh, and don’t worry about those who claim to be not running again, like Chris Dodd. You’ll see his ugly face around Washington until his last breath. He’ll be conspiring from the outside to fatten his wallet, and to keep his accomplices in power. Make no mistake about it.
What was that Jefferson said about the tree of liberty……
