Rep. Brad Miller NC-13 -- Legislating Health-Care Reform by Skulking in the Shadows of Dark Rooms ..


I bumped into this video (below) earlier today.

In the video Brad Miller describes how dysfunctional government follows from government legislated from dark rooms in secrecy. "Democracy dies behind closed doors", said Brad Miller. It is truly astounding that the same man voted for ObamaCare. Hearing the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi say that "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it..." should have been a hint to Brad Miller that the darkness he described was upon us.


The bill was passed with Brad Miller's vote and now the light of day can shine upon it. Here is a short list of what had been gestating in those dark rooms Brad Miller once feared but now finds a home in.

The light of debate would have solved these problems, yet Brad Miller was no longer standing with his morals, preferring, instead, to skulk in the shadows of darkness and secrecy.

The old Brad Miller was correct when he said "Democracies die behind closed doors.", I just never thought Brad Miller, a representative of North Carolina, would be a progenitor of that death.
