America’s secret government

Government secrecy has become the norm under this administration, particularly when it comes to the financial bailout. Exhibit A is a gag order preventing banks from divulging how they performed on the Treasury Department’s financial “stress tests.”

With trillions of their dollars being thrown to the wind, taxpayers have a legitimate interest in knowing how it is being spent, or misspent. Mr. Obama repeatedly promised greater transparency in his administration, but these sweet nothings fly in the face of how oversight agencies are performing on his watch. The public wants to know what Treasury is doing. To be fair, it’s possible that Mr. Obama has no idea, either.
