Read the Bill...

These people wonder why we hold them in contempt and have a very low opinion of them. At times I think that our elected leaders are no better than a sleazy crooked used car salesmen.
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) on Friday afternoon called on his colleagues to support the $1 trillion omnibus spending bill, even though he claimed no one — or almost no one — in the House has read it.

“I rise in strong support of this bill, and I urge my colleagues to support this piece of legislation,” he said. “None of them have read it.” [The Hill]
While some might think that Buffoon is a bit harsh in describing these clowns, think of it this way. Our elected leaders are going to pass a bill that is 1200+ pages long costing us a trillion dollars and none of them have read the bill. How do we know that there isn’t some hidden tax placed in the bill? How do we know there isn’t something else that is objectionable in the bill tucked away inside 1200+ pages of congressional drivel?
