What a brilliant idea. Before taking office in 2009, President Obama promised to have the most transparent administration in history. Throughout his first term, we've seen anything but transparency but now would be a great time for redemption. President of Americans for Tax Reform Grover Norquist has called for fiscal cliff negotiations to take place in front of TV cameras where we can all see how our politicians plan to change our lives on January 1.

“It’s the president who is threatening to raise taxes on the middle class if he doesn’t stamp his feet and get his way,” Norquist said Sunday on  NBC's “Meet the Press.” “He should get into a room with C-Span cameras there and negotiate. Lets have it in front of C-Span cameras. And if the Republicans are being reasonable, we’ll see that. If they’re not, we’ll see that. Gotta have cameras in that room.”


So far, fiscal cliff negotiations have taken place behind closed doors. Open door negotiations give us amazing moments and clarity like the one below, when Paul Ryan battled President Obama directly on ObamaCare.
