“House Democrats blocked the public from attending the unveiling ceremony of their health-care bill Thursday morning, allowing only pre-approved visitors whose names appeared on lists to enter the event at the West side of the Capitol.
…Democrats repeatedly touted the openness of the development of their health care bill, which House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer called “the most deliberative, transparent and open process” he had seen in his career on Capitol Hill.” (from: House health-bill event closed to public, Washington Times)
How long has Hoyer worked on Capitol Hill? This healthcare bill development process has been anything BUT transparent. Wouldn’t expect anything less from the District of Criminals though. The bill hasn’t even passed yet and they’re already giving preferential treatment and rationing access.
