Televised meetings

Republicans sent mixed signals after President Obama challenged them to participate in a one-of-a-kind televised summit with Democrats to come up with health care legislation.

I hope someone will ask the administration why they want to televise meetings to discuss the healthcare bill with opposition Congressmen, but they didn't televise all the dozens and dozens of meetings with industry and insurance and pharmaceutical and labor lobbyists to actually draft the bill behind closed doors (in exchange for campaign donations and advocacy fundraising).
