(Columbia, S.C) – Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement today in support of C-SPAN’s request to keep the public informed through media coverage during future health care negotiations:
“I applaud C-SPAN’s letter to congressional leaders asking that all future health care negotiations be open to the public through media coverage. I hope Speaker Pelosi gives the American people a seat at the negotiation tables by accepting C-SPAN’s generous offer to cover such discussions.
“During his campaign, President Obama promised voters that health care discussions would be televised live. Congressional leaders should help the President keep this important promise and put a stop to secret backroom talks that have been a part of Washington’s way of doing business for entirely too long,” said Congressman Joe Wilson.
