Some elected officials would like to continue to work as they have for many years, without having to answer to anyone. Citizens are┬ábecoming more and more dissatisfied with Congress’s results and in response are demanding more transparency.

An article from states:

While most Americans normally ignore parliamentary detail, with health care looming, voters are suddenly paying attention. The Senate is expected to vote on a health bill in the weeks to come, representing months of work and stretching to hundreds of pages. And as of now, there is no assurance that members of the public, or even the senators themselves, will be given the chance to read the legislation before a vote.

Every citizen needs to take the time to get informed and know what is going on in their government and where their tax dollars go. If bills were posted online, or in a communal place, we would be able to discern for ourselves what is being proposed and give important feedback to our representatives before they vote.
