Well of course, everything looks bad if you remember it.

There are also multiple general promises by pelosi about being open and transparent etc. but those were general claims. Obama repeatedly spoke about healthcare specifically, and the need to open up discussion to all parties, and in particular to the public so they could know what was going on. As it turns out it's not that important for the public to know the details. Government will do what is best for the people whether they like it or not. I don't know why politicians feel like they can treat the voting public like children. Americans have made it very clear they don't like the way this health care bill is being handled, and yet it is being forced upon the american people against their will.

(side note, if bush had repeatedly made a promise like that and so blatantly gone back on it, it would be all over the NY times, etc.)
