Gingrey Encourages Congressional Leaders To Televise Health Care Negotiations

Today, 11th district Congressman Phil Gingrey (R - Marietta) became the latest federal lawmaker to ask that the final health care bill negotiations be televised by C-SPAN.

Gingrey Communications Director Stephanie Valle said the four-term Congressman would certainly encourage both Democratic and Republican leaders fulfill the request from C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb to allow cameras into the talks on the final health care bill.

"There is no reason why the public should be shut out of the debate," Valle said.
