Obama’s Open Government
Here’s the full article:
And here’s the opening paragraphs.
WASHINGTON — The Senate Finance Committee opened a second day of debate on health-care legislation, tangling Wednesday over whether the full bill should be made available online before the panel votes on it.
The committee has a “conceptual” version of the health-care bill posted on its Web site, rather than a full legislative text of the bill. Compiling the complex language with amendments into a bill and consequently receiving an official cost estimate would take weeks, according to the committee’s chairman, Sen. Max Baucus.

By a 12-11 vote, the committee defeated a Republican amendment that would have required it to post the full bill at least 72 hours before it votes on whether to approve the measure.
This is some MAJOR bullshit. Obama’s new open government my ass!
