Senator Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat who usually backs the Obama administration on everything, has called for an end to the Obama-Reid C-SPAN blackout.
She also backs open health reform negotiations in the conference committee format that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi want to circumvent. Here’s an excerpt from her statement:
As I said to Channel 4 in St. Louis on Monday, it’s my opinion that we should open up any further negotiations between the House and the Senate to C-SPAN so the public can watch. I believe that the best way for these negotiations to occur is through the conference committee process, and I have communicated my opinion to the leadership of my party in the Senate.
Here’s the audio (via Hot Air) of McCaskill’s radio discussion on the subject:
