What Happened To Obama's Bill Signing Promise?
Politicians make lots of promises they can't keep. But sometimes they make promises they can keep but just won't.
Such is the case with President Obama's promise to post bills on the White web page for constituent review before signing them. Clearly this is one pledge well within the control of the president. It's not like others that require - say - congressional approval.
The Washington Times is reporting that just last week, the president signed four bills within one or two days of their passage in Congress. He had promised to post bills on the web site for five days after they reached his desk to allow for public comment.
So much for transparency in government.
We talk about issues like this and more weekdays at 5 PM New York time on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com
