Change has come to America, and the new president has promised that government will also change. Is this one of those campaign promises that will never be fulfilled, or are we going to see some traction on this issue? Well, President Obama has signed bills on his first day in office to improve transparency of the government by demanding that it disclose more information, by mandating new limits on lobbyists, and by freezing salaries of the top echelons. A real signal. So can we hope? Yes we can.
