“If we pay for something and it’s the public’s business, we ought to be able to see how it’s done”

Amen, Brian Lamb.

In addition to pointing out how Barack Obama used C-SPAN as a political football during the presidential campaign and how the White House has only allowed one hour of dog-and-pony coverage of health care debate on the public affairs channel, Lamb sums up the simple, non-partisan principle behind the push for open, televised coverage of the backroom wheeling and dealing:

“If we pay for something and it’s the public’s business, we ought to be able to see how it’s done.”

No wonder the Vampire Congress and the Prince of Darkness in the White House have responded to a simple request for transparency with near-violent apoplexy:

In related news, Fla. GOP Rep. Vern Buchanan has filed a congressional resolution demanding transparency in the negotiations process.

One more time: Let the cameras in.

Democrat Rep. Joe Sestak acknowledges the Darkness: “They said it would be transparent. Why isn’t it? At times, I find the caucus is a real disappointment. We aren’t transparent, not just to the public but at times to the members.”
