Where is C-SPAN? January 11, 2010

You’ve see the clips by now-about President Candidate Obama telling everyone that the health bill negotiations would be conducted live, on C-SPAN. And C-SPAN wrote Senator Harry Reid a letter about that.

Nothing on C-SPAN. Right now they are showing former Rep. Mickey Edwards-I mean really! I guess the negotiations are going on behind closed doors and in closets.

But there is almost no discussion in the other media (radio, print) about the negotiations and I don’t think that is a good thing. The public has been removed from the  issue. Apparently, the President took time away from his People magazine interview to remind us that many good things would go into effect right away. When is right away? First it was August, then October, then before the holiday recess, then before the State of the Union.

I’d like to see the President be a tad more visible on this issue and use his capital on what was one of Candidate Obama’s signature issues to make things happen. Wait, the print media is weighing in. This just posted by the San Jose Mercury News.

Even Governor Schwarzenegger got in a great quip last Wednesday at the Democrat’s expense-or maybe it was just anti-Nebraska. A little statist rivalry? The Governator said about the Cornhusker state Senator Nelson-

He got the corn-we got the husk!

Senator Reid, let C-SPAN show us the corn!
