Politicians Lie Again

"In a press conference Thursday, the House Republican leadership spoke candidly about being kept out of the House-Senate conference on the Obama-Pelosi-Reid so-called “economic stimulus” bill. They confirmed they had not yet seen the text of the bill as of 4 p.m...“The American people have a right to know what’s in this bill,” Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind) told HUMAN EVENTS after the press conference. “Every member of Congress -- Republicans and Democrats -- voted to post this bill on the internet for 48 hours, 48 hours ago. We’ll see if the Democrats keep their word.”Actually -- as of 5:15 pm, the Democrats had broken their word. The stimulus bill -- which we still haven’t seen -- will be released late tonight and will be brought up on the House floor at 9 am tomorrow." [link]

I was just wondering if everyone else finds the so called "transparency in government" as ironic and humorous as I do. Anymore I do not know whether to laugh or cry at the idiocy that goes on in D.C.

It does not suprise me that the whole Democratic party lies to the US and the world as you point out with the 48 hour thing! What really does amaze me is we are not hearing any Democratic voters who put that Jr Senator in the White House complaining about all of this! Are they asleep at the wheel or out for more Kool Aid?
