Heard About the Debt-Limit Negotiations? I Didn't Think So

There's a good reason that you haven't heard about the national-debt limit negotiations.

The American public...has not been allowed to watch these negotiations.

The negotiations include Biden, Senators Jon Kyl (R.-Ariz.), Max Baucus (D.-Mont.) and Daniel Inouye (D.-Hawaii), and House members Eric Cantor (R.-Va.), Jim Clyburn (D.-S.C.) and Chris Van Hollen (D.-Md.). It is widely expected that if these members do cut a deal, they will release the details close to the Aug. 2 deadline.

Meaning that the public's "input", if any, will be useless--and most likely ignored.

We're back to standard operating procedure, whereby you are expected to STFU and pay.

Why don't you march on back to DC and demand a seat at the table. I'm sure they'd enjoy listening to your conspiracy theories.

So it's a bad thing when the public is ignored? What about when elected officials are ignored and not allowed to speak?

Don't tell FitzWalkerStan.

Uh... yeah.. It's been all over the news the first half of this year.
