    How am I suppose to research a topic when I can't get a hearing transcript for "two months to two years" after the hearing?

    And from what I have seen upcoming bills are not on line until after the vote. That maybe that will change as 2013 gets going. I hope so.

    Campaign promise in 2008, remember?

    9 January 2013 - Suffering from incredibly low approval ratings, Congress is now less popular than cockroaches. We turn to some groups (slightly) more beloved by Americans for advice.

    It has to be Bush and teh GOP that is keeping Obama from his promise of transparency.

    The congress is not very transparent either with their last minute voting/changes without releasing bill to the public.

    And yes it is the Bush in Obama too ;)
