“President Obama, Senate and House leaders, many of your rank-and-file members, and the nation’s editorial pages have all talked about the value of transparent discussions on reforming the nation’s health care system,” he [C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb] wrote. “Now that the process moves to the critical stage of reconciliation between the chambers, we respectfully request that you allow the public full access, through television, to legislation that will affect the lives of every single American.”
I don’t know the political affiliations of Mr. Lamb but I want to highlight the last phrase of this quote from his letter:
legislation that will affect the lives of every single American.
I’m not sure how many people realize how significant that is. Whether you like it or not, health care “reform” will affect you.
