Transparency FAIL

s expected, the Obama Administration and Congressional allies are trying to ram the stimulus bill through without allowing the public to take a good, long look at it.

Does anyone actually believe that this sort of thing would go on if the Administration were even remotely confident in its work product?

Me neither. It’s time to call the Administration on its lack of transparency–a lack of transparency that explicitly goes against the campaign promises Barack Obama made to the public. Trillions of our dollars are being spent without either elected officials or the general public knowing how the stimulus plan is going to work. It is as if the Administration and its Congressional allies have decided not to outdo by leaps and bounds the parody of a secretive Dick Cheney they have cultivated for years.
