Sen. McCaskill: Put Healthcare Talks on C-SPAN

Friday, 08 Jan 2010 06:15 PM

A Democratic senator says party leaders should open healthcare negotiations to C-SPAN cameras, echoing Republicans who have called for greater transparency.

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill said in a statement Friday that hundreds of hours of debate on healthcare have been open and further talks between the House and Senate should be on C-SPAN.

C-SPAN chief executive Brian Lamb sent a letter to congressional leaders this week asking for the talks to be opened to cameras. As a candidate, President Barack Obama pledged during a January 2008 debate that negotiations would be on C-SPAN.

Democrats say they have kept Americans informed throughout the process. Republicans have criticized them for taking the final, most crucial stage of the discussions behind closed doors.
