The House vote on Speaker Pelosi’s government health care bill is set for Saturday morning. She is scrambling to buy off recalcitrant Democrats on two of very issues that Rep. Joe Wilson and other House Republicans called out the White House for: abortion and illegal immigrant coverage. The wheeling and dealing is taking place behind closed doors. Once again, the Democrats who promised transparency are breaking their own promise to publish the final bill publicly 72 hours before the vote.
Which dovetails perfectly with my column today on Democrats and the death of deliberative democracy. I’ve uploaded the entire 2006 report I referenced in the piece right here (PDF) for your reading amusement. Just callin’ em out.
