The Constitution for the United States of America
Section 5 - Paragraph 3
Each House shall keep a journal of its proceedings, and from time to time publish the same, excepting such parts as may in their judgement require secrecy; and the yeas and nays of the members of either House on any question shall, at the desire of one-fifth of those present, be entered on the journal.
We, the People, mandated that our public servants keep a record of their proceedings and publish said record so We know what they are doing.
