Congress does not have the right to censor its sessions. The public has the right to watch Congressional proceedings to see what Congress is doing. Furthermore, it was the voters that sent their representatives and senators to Congress; therefore, Congress works for the public. In short, it was not right for Congress to turn off the cameras during its session.
No, Congress does not have the right to turn off the cameras because we, the American people, pay their wages. They work for us and they should not be censoring sessions. When Congress turns off the cameras, it appears as if they are trying to hide something. This is not about censoring sessions. It's about trying to hide deal making from the American people.
No, I do not think that Congress has a right to censor its sessions because the American government should strive to be as transparent as possible. The people who voted for American elected officials deserve to see what is going on in Congress and examine what their representative is up to.
Congress shouldn't have any privacy from the public. They were elected by the public and their salaries are paid for by the public. We all deserve to know what they do, since they are supposed to be serving us. It's completely wrong for them to think that they can do this.
