Flashback Monday: Remember When Transparency Was Chic on the Obama Campaign Trail?

So do I.

But apparently, that didn’t apply with the Stimulus Bill, which the President is about to sign, and didn’t apply to Congressional Democrats, who not only shut out Republicans in the Stimulus Conference Negotiations, but they, along with the other members of Congress didn’t even get a chance to read the bill before voting on it. This after Democrats promised a 48 hour window and Obama promised a five day window to allow Americans to read what was in the bill.

That’s the Hope and Change we all expected once Barack Obama was sworn in, right?
