Senator Sessions: Open fiscal cliff negotiations to the public

“First of all, these secret talks violate the principle of American government that would be open. Every city, county, school board has open meeting laws. You’re not supposed to be meeting in secret.

So it hasn’t even worked practically and it certainly is contrary to good public policy.”
