Hey, remember when the Democrats took over Congress and promised the most open Congress in history?
Remember when Barack Obama ran for president, promising the most open administration in history?
If you do remember, then you’re ahead of those who made those promises.
Right now in Congress, they’re working on the budget. And just like the last time the House prepared to spend ungodly amounts of money, the Democrats have excluded the Republicans. Even worse, they’re not letting the public see the bill before it’s voted on.
Meanwhile, the Obama administration is working on its defense bill. And to make certain that everyone sings from the same hymnal, they’ve ordered top defense officials to sign a secrecy oath that they will not discuss the details with anyone outside the federal government.
So much for yet another pair of Democratic promises…
