The most transparent Congress evah does not want to put the bills it votes on online 3 days before a vote. Especially not the health care bill.
Senate Finance Committee Democrats have rejected a GOP amendment that would have required a health overhaul bill to be available online for 72 hours before the committee votes.Three days equals weeks? That seems a bit math challenged to me. Considering how hard it is for some Democrats to figure out their taxes why am I not surprised?
Republicans argued that transparency is an Obama administration goal. They also noted that their constituents are demanding that they read bills before voting.
Democrats said it was a delay tactic that could have postponed a vote for weeks.
