Congressman Vern Buchanan is lobbying President Barack Obama to make sure the final negotiations on proposed health-care reform are conducted under the full view of the American people.

In a letter to the president dated Jan. 7, Buchanan writes: “Excluding the public and press from this process sends a disturbing message. A government that is secretive and inaccessible cannot maintain the trust and confidence of the people it serves.”

Buchanan also urged the president to take up C-SPAN’s offer to televise negotiations.
