Herald: Enough with the Closed-Door Lawmaking

The Herald‘s editorial staff is fed up with the “insiders’ game.” In an editorial today, they cite the health care reform bill enacted last week, stating that the majority of House and Senate members never even laid eyes on it, despite the fact that lawmakers championed it as one of the most important bills pretty much ever. “None of the important business takes place inside the ornate chambers of either branch. Power is increasingly concentrated in the hands of a tiny number of legislative leaders, and it shows.” [Herald]
