Should Senators Read 2,074-Page Bill Before Voting?

I’m simple minded, I suppose. It merely seems logical that our congressmen would read a bill before they vote on it. How is it that such a question could even be raised?

Hefty rascals, huh? The bills I mean.:)

  1. Shirley,
    Great post. I agree that it should be read, and OUT LOUD for the official record.

    Helen-
    Valid question. The way I see it, is if they are the ones essentially writing the law, shouldn’t it be readable as well. Afterall, it generally should take longer to craft a project than to read through the finished product.

    My problem has been the general complaint that there isn’t time to read a bill (any bill), but somehow they know exactly what it does and doesn’t do, so the bill should be voted on even though they don’t know the technicalities of what it says…supposedly.

    How can they read it? Even if they did, they don’t have to worry about it. It doesn’t apply to them. Only the ones that put them in office…. hmm I just had a good idea…. what if???
