If one has been keeping up with Congress’ “work” on President Obama’s Health Insurance Reconstruction, ObamaCare, then one knows that most of the “work” has been done behind closed doors by Democrat-ruled committees with neither Republicans nor we, the People able to view or effect the proceedings. Thus did the abomination of Obama pass the House and thus did it pass the Senate.
If one has been recently paying attention one knows that C-SPAN challenged President Obama and his Liberals in Congress to allow C-SPAN to televise the final reconciliation of the House and Senate bills.
Of course C-SPAN’s challenge was already moot when they made it. The night before President Obama held a private meeting with Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid and House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi in which he made sure that the final reconciliation of the House and Senate Versions of ObamaCare would be – once again – be made by select Democrat committee members behind closed doors.
It was agreed by Obama, Pelosi, and Reid to have Congrress bypass the normal a formal “conference committee” and instead negotiate “informally” on their respective health care bills, confirm Congressional aides and sources outside of government.
Of course this is 2010, not 2008, so different rules and expectations are in effect – especially involving the White House.
I’m going to have all the negotiations around a big table. We’ll have doctors and nurses and hospital administrators. Insurance companies, drug companies — they’ll get a seat at the table, they just won’t be able to buy every chair. But what we will do is, we’ll have the negotiations televised on C-SPAN, so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents, and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies. And so, that approach, I think is what is going to allow people to stay involved in this process.

Of course the above words that drooled from Obama’s mouth were just one of his lies involving ObamaCare and transparency. Here’s a few more of them, though they’re all just variations on a theme:
8 Clips of Obama Promising Televised Healthcare Negotiations
President Obama is a well-educated, articulate, and oft-times affable liar and fraud. No words that ever issue from his mouth can be believed by any American and worse, no oath he has ever sworn can be trusted. He is a creature possessed of great cunning but little or no integrity – a dangerous combination of traits that bodes ill for America’s future if he’s allowed to remain in office.
