    WASHINGTON -- On Saturday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called on the debt reduction "super committee" to do its work in the open.

    "The American people are watching to see if the bipartisan Joint Committee will develop a plan to responsibly reduce the deficit in a balanced way while promoting economic growth and creating jobs," Pelosi said in a statement. "The work of this Committee will affect all Americans, and its deliberations should be open the press, to the public and webcast. Any acceptance of the Committee proposal will be dependent on the ability of the American people to fully view its proceedings."

    Pelosi is the first congressional leader to call for an open and transparent super committee. She is in charge of appointing three Democratic members of the House to the committee.

    Democrats want transparency; T-publicans want secrecy and will likely select their most rigid members for the super committee.​

    I guess she means something along the lines of, 'We have to pass it to see what's in it'.

    Then they’re looking at massive defense cuts. It will be interesting to see if they take the military cuts over tax increases.

    That's rich after spending how many days behind closed doors passing your behemoth health care bill.

    Are you seriously this much of a partisan hack to believe this shit?

    Are you genuinely that ignorant of Pelosi's house record in regards to transparency?
    Did I miss the C-Span-broadcasted debates?
