Is it really full disclosure when the votes happen at 1 AM?

They passed the bloated pork masquerading as defense bill at 1 AM Friday. They're having the next healthcare vote at 1 AM tonight. What happened to all that open communication with the people and letting them see what's going on?

  • Well, the people did vote for change...

    I thought this was supposed to be HISTORIC! Why would something so blessedly wonderful need to be HISTORICALLY voted in at 1:00 am. It makes you wonder what kind of last minute crap or during the vote crap they are going to throw in.

    I think they should add a few new rules up on the hill, one of them being all votes have to be during business hours M-F. The only exceptions being a true emergency such as a military one.

    Oh and junk like the $300 million Nelson is getting...Obama should personally fork it over. The taxpayers in my state don't even have enough to keep enough teachers in the schools or cops on the street, let alone medicaid for Nebraska.

  • What are you talking about? The people we elected to VOTE KNOW whats in the bills and they are there to represent us...Don't like it? What is YOUR idea, NEW government rules? Throw out democracy?


    If you have no faith in your elected official, DO SOMETHING...
