More Transparency like pulling teeth

Transparency and House Democrats fighting for President Obama. There was wide-ranging request by Republicans for documents on private meetings that White House officials had last year with doctors and other medical providers as health care legislation was being prepared. This of course was done behind closed-doors. The house was able to limit requests to records detailing agreements the White House reached with provider groups. The Republicans have rightly accused President Barack Obama of not fulfilling his promise to conduct health care talks in public. These talks held last May at the White House led to the announcement that doctors, pharmaceutical companies and other health care providers had agreed to find about $2 trillion in health care savings over the coming decade. this kind of back room dealings are out in front now because of Healthcare reform that included extra federal aid for Nebraska and Louisiana. This has not been passed yet but it is clear the details have been worked out as Democrats consulted with White House officials in working out the agreement with committee Republicans. This is the kind of thing that makes President Obama and the Democrats appear to be snake oil salesmen, they have a potion to cure everything and they know more than you.
