Bad Obama -- Health Care Negotiations Taking Place Behind Closed Doors
Despite campaign promises to reform health care in the sunlight of public scrutiny, Obama's allowing health care legislation negotiations to take place behind closed doors. Senators Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.) and Max Baucus (D-Mont.) as well as top White House aides are trying to merge competing versions of the legislation into one bill.
Republicans and open government advocates are upset by the secretive process.
