Well, at least they tried. Last week, one Congressman implied that reading isn’t worth it.
At a National Press Club luncheon, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) told the audience:
I love these members that get up and say, “Read the bill!” Well, what good is reading the bill if it's a thousand pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you've read the bill?
I hope Conyers will take the next step, which is voting against 1,000-page bills filled with convoluted legalese.
