Obamunist "Transparency"

This gives an idea of how determined Democrats were to ram through the obscene Porkzilla package before anyone could find out what was in it:

Democratic staffers released the final version of the stimulus bill at about 11 p.m. [Thursday] night after delaying the release for hours to put it into a format which people cannot "search" on their home computers.
Instead of publishing the bill as a regular internet document -- which people can search by "key words" and otherwise, the Dems took hours to convert the final bill from the regular searchable format into "pdf" files, which can be read but not searched.
Three of the four .pdf files had no text embedded, just images of the text, which did not permit text searches of the bill.

Dems knew that no one would have time to wade through over 1,000 pages of nearly unintelligible bureaucratese in time for the vote on Friday. They may as well have released the bill in Sanskrit.
