    I agree, it should be televised -- but my understanding is that it's not going to be a formal committee. Using the Senate bill, the House will submit what they want and an amendment will be written in an informal committee.

    I'm not sure what they would televise, a handful of congressional staffers and lawyers typing and retyping new drafts.

    I'm pretty sure I've watched more c-span than most people on this board. Robotic cameras, no editing -- it's the closest thing to totally completely coverage. I stream committee hearings at work.

    My comments were more amusement at the image of Tea Party folks trying to follow a C-span broadcast. No music. No graphics. No commentator to tell them what to think... They'd have to listen, and think for themselves...

    So basically what you're saying is, you just posted to so you could insult conservatives, and had absolutely nothing substantive to contribute.

    Got it.

    Don't people get thread banned for doing nothing more than insulting people?

    No, far-right, paranoid tea baggers who can't think for themselves. Yes, I attack them for dragging the GOP into the toilet bowl of irrelevancy... and embarrassing the hell out of bright and pragmatic fiscal conservatives. (classic liberalism)

    Moderator's Warning:
    C-SPAN Challenges Congress to Open Health Care Talks to TV CoverageGrim and Hazlnut - stick to the topic and cease with the personal back-and-forth off-handed attacks. This is your last warning.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    I know I sure did... and it was on a thread that I had authored myself.

    Maybe not all posters are created equal.

    So my commenting on the fact that he is attacking and insulting, rather than commenting on the thread topic gets me a warning?

    Okey doke.

    The fact, eh..?

    Post #21, Grim.

    Comments on the thread topic -- you opted to ignore most of them.

    Who has refused an open hearing? Not suspected possibly might not allow it, but come out and denied the media access? Nobody? Or nobody?
    Don't work out, work in.
