Presidential candidate Barack Obama promised over and over, and over, and over, and over, again not to negotiate healthcare reform behind closed doors, to bring all parties together and to broadcast those negotiations on C-SPAN “so the American people can see what the choices are. Obama promised the healthcare negotiations would be on C-SPAN:
•He said it at Google –November 14, 2007
•He said it at the CNN Democrat Presidential Debate — January 31, 2008
•He said it during an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle — January 17, 2008 [the same interview during which Obama said his cap and trade plan would bankrupt anyone who builds a coal-powered plant and electricity rates will skyrocket.]
•He said it at an Ohio Town Hall — March 2008
•He said it during an interview with the St. Petersburg Times — May 2008
Watch the following video to see Obama’s now broken promises for transparent healthcare negotiations:
