This is insane. Depending on what television station you are watching or what print/internet media you are reading there seems to be two distinct debates going on in Washington. Democrats are insisting that the money issue has been solved and the only thing preventing an agreement is that the Republicans won't let go of defunding Planned Parenthood. Turn the channel, flip the page and the Republicans are insisting that the Democrats won't cut enough money from the proposed budget and the riders don't matter to them. Regardless of what "side" you're on, it's obvious someone's lying. This is not a thread about who's lying - this is a thread about transparency and the real need for broadcasted sessions of both the Senate and the Congress. None of this could be happening if there were reporters present or cameras running. The damage being done to both sides and The Tea Party is enormous. How do they not see this?
