Secretive Congress

This shouldn't be a surprise.

As avenues for open government increase, expect Congress to find more creative ways to control their messaging and keep as many of their activities secret. It's the nature of the beast, here. And as has been said: once a bill hits the floor, it's too late for activists or citizens to play much of a role.

That's why this DailyKos spinnoff, Congress Matters - and other projects like it - are a big deal and worth keep close tabs on.
