And it’s just been a month with the new President and Congress. What happened to Obama’s sunlight promise? That the public would get to see a bill for five days online before it is signed – broken promise. What about the Democrats promise to allow the public to see the proposed bill 48 hours before a vote? Broken already.
Today on Glenn Beck’s radio program Congressman John Culberson of Texas claimed that Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed a vote today on porkulus (all GOP and 7 Democrat voting against – so bipartisan opposition) so she can go jet over to Italy. That didn’t even allow the members of the House time to read this bill over.
Imagine that, something this important and they had to vote on it before they could even read it. Crazy! The taxpayers deserve better than this.
