Debt and an Open Hearing? DEMAND IT!
With all the money that has been sent to our enemies we should call, email, and write ALL of our representatives urging a full and open hearing.
GOP Wants Open Debt Committee Hearings
Much of Washington’s attention is now focused on the bipartisan congressional committee that will soon be formed to recommend how to reduce the budget deficit by $1.5 trillion. And Republicans are working hard to ensure that the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction holds all its meetings in public, The Hill reports.
Six GOP senators sent a letter to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Wednesday urging that the committee’s business be “done in a transparent manner through advanced public notification, public attendance and live television broadcasts, . . . not behind closed doors.”
The signers include Sens. Dean Heller of Nevada, David Vitter of Louisiana, Mike Lee of Utah, John Boozman of Arkansas, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.
Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., said Thursday that he will offer a similar proposal in the House.
