In addition to Jillian's post about a Republican staffer trying to get into the Pelosi health care event, Washington Times reports:

House Democrats blocked the public from attending the unveiling ceremony of their health-care bill Thursday morning, allowing only pre-approved visitors whose names appeared on lists to enter the event at the West side of the Capitol.

The audience at the crowded press conference included Hill staffers, union workers, health care providers and students, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who thanked them for attending.




This "public" unveiling of the "public" option to the "public" took place on "public" property.  Hooray transparency!
