'Your papers, please' must never be heard in America
Independent voices from the TWT Communities
The congressional supercommittee charged with tackling the federal debt crisis is facing overwhelming calls to conduct all its deliberations in the open, but some voices are warning that too much transparency could end up dooming the whole thing.
"If the supercommittee had to air every idea in public, it would be a disaster," she said.
"These Americans would much rather have Congress do its work behind closed doors so long as their representatives are not being bought by special interests and so long as the public has the opportunity to learn about decisions, the reasons for and against them, and why their representatives decided what they did," she said.
