Beware of the scary taxpayer!

This hasn't been a good year for government transparency.

While President Barack Obama was showing us he didn't really mean it when he said the public would be given five days to view and comment on bills before he signed them, Kentucky's House Speaker Greg Stumbo and Budget Chairman Rick Rand have bottled up a bill that would give just one day for us to view revenue and spending bills.

What are these guys afraid of?

Someone must have given them a copy of 1776 by David McCullough.

Maybe they are afraid of a mob outside their doors with pitchforks and torches. They chased monsters away like that long ago, wonder if it would work now?
