The Poison Of Beltway Secrecy

Sunday, July 10, 2011  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Mike Allen’s Playbook provides a summary of the reasons behind Speaker Boehner’s abrupt ending of the “big deal” talks.

Here’s a good rule for the House GOP Leadership: Anything you are tempted to agree to should be put out for full viewing before any agreement is reached. November 2010 wasn’t a vote for inside baseball and top-down diktats.

Good though not perfect deals will gather support even if a few critics emerge. Bad deals with horrific consequences for the country and the GOP will be instantly judged as much.

“The wisdom of the many” is a reality. End runs and jam downs will not work to accomplish anything except upheaval in the GOP Conference as the freshmen realize they are being led off the cliff.

Be sure to tweet your opinions to @JohnBoehner and @GOPLeader.
