Surprised? President Barack Obama has decided to forget about something he promised at least 8 times during his 2008 campaign, to televise the health care debate.
According to the New York Post, this past Tuesday President Obama urged the senate democrats to skip out on the usual process of debate, and hammer out a health care reform bill behind closed doors to pass along to him ASAP.
During his campaign against John McCain in 2008, he promised at least 8 times counted, that the health care debate would be done in a public forum, on television, most likely on the c-span network.
In the video below, from Breitbart.tv, you can see a January, 20 2008 interview where then Senator Barack Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle; “These negotiations will be on C-SPAN, and so the public will be part of the conversation and will see the choices that are being made.”
