Dems Plan to Keep Healthcare Negotiations Secret


“Despite their claims to the contrary, the way that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have handled the healthcare bill has been anything but transparent. And, if the left-wing blogosphere is to be believed, the two congressional leaders intend to keep the deliberations secret as they try to merge the House and Senate versions of the legislation into something that will pass both chambers.” (USNEWS, Monday)

Hmmm. Maybe the Patriot Act could come in handy here?
