• House Actually Reads Bill, Part II

      Yesterday, I mentioned how some Congressmen are boasting about reading all 1,018 pages of the health care bill.

      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.
