What Are They Hiding?

Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican Leader, said this about the health care bill yesterday. "The fact is, this proposal will never come before the Senate. But what we do know is that the bill written behind closed doors here in the Capitol will be another 1,000-page, trillion-dollar Washington takeover. We know it will slash a half-trillion dollars from seniors’ Medicare, add new taxes and raise premiums. That’s not reform.”

He's right. The question is why should any of this be done behind closed doors. It has nothing to do with national security. It is only so the crooks who claim to represent us can wheel and deal without leaving any evidence of their treachery. If we want to have honest, open, representative government, the secrecy must end. Demand it, America. We can make it happen.
