Transparency! Democrats Refuse to Post Health Care Bill Online

The time for debate is over. Uhhh, actually, there's no time for debate. In fact, Democrats refuse to even let the public see what they plan to ram down our throats.

Well, considering they won't even read the bill, why would they let the public see it? Nice how they pull this stunt while everyone distracted watching Obama trash America at the UN.
Senate Finance Committee Democrats have rejected a GOP amendment that would have required a health overhaul bill to be available online for 72 hours before the committee votes.

Republicans argued that transparency is an Obama administration goal. They also noted that their constituents are demanding that they read bills before voting.

Democrats said it was a delay tactic that could have postponed a vote for weeks.

The Democrats noted that unlike other committees, the Finance Committee works off conceptual language that describes policies — instead of legislative language that ultimately becomes law, and which the GOP amendment would have required.
What are they hiding?
