One might get that impression after reading this quotation from National Review?s new profile of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.:
?From cameras in the Rules Committee to putting bills online at least 72 hours before a vote, we will enable people to know what?s happening, read the bills, and understand the debate. Better ideas will emerge, and the process will keep leadership power in check. It?ll be a healthy change.? [Emphasis added.]
