    snip,
    A little crazy? How about a flat out lie.
    I don't care what kind of format that bill is in, be it MS Word, hand written, typed the old fashioned way on a typewriter, or Lotus Notes, I could put it into an Adobe pdf format and get it posted on the internet in under 10 minutes.
    He's full of shit, he just doesn't want you to be able to read what is in it.

    Mr Obama said that prior to the house and senate voting on a bill, he would make sure it was published online for 2 weeks so that the people could see what was in it. It was part of his "transparency in government" claim.
    Let's see if he holds up his end of the bargain on this one. We all know the congress-creeps won't, now is his chance.

    The bill is already online, along with a list of the proposed amendments. I don't know why they can't just have someone type them in as they are approved/discarded real time. They could add the general gist of whatever amendment hasn't been codified. But some staffer should be able to rattle that stuff off pretty easily.

    Baucus is butthead.

    The original House bill is online, not the senate version nor the altered house versions.
    Transparency in government is a lie.

    He's not Full of shit, he's a Librul. What he says makes perfect sense.

    See putting the bill online will cause a surge in people using computers to access and read the bill thereby causing a surge in Man-made Global Warming; he's saving the planet by not putting the bill online

    Well, that and when the original house version was posted it caused an upswell in citizen involvement. They wouldn't want that to happen again.

    The really sad thing is that this is what I do for a living, set up networks with real time information for small companies so they can access invoices and inventory from anywhere as well as sync up their terminals and registers so it remains up to the minute ... it wouldn't be any different to do it for a bill, actually, it would be easier.
