What a Maroon!

Yesterday, Michigan Congressman John Conyers said, “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill.' 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 read the bill?”

I have two things to say to this kind of illogic. Firstly, Congress has no business writing 1,000 page bills. Nothing in the Constitution gives Congress the kind of authority that would ever warrant their need for a 1,000 page bill.

Secondly, if Congress is voting on 1,000 page bills--the question must be asked, who is actually writing these bills? And if the bill is before you to vote on, and you intend to actually vote in favor of it, oughtn't you actually read it first?

Congressman Conyers is a pathetic man and has no place in government or leadership. Voters ought to kick his sorry butt out of office. What a jerk!

Wow! I have to say that I agree with you John. This guy is an embarrassment to the United States of America. What a sad sad state of affairs to have a United States Congressmen ridiculing the idea of actually reading the legislation that he is voting on. I am thoroughly appalled. What can we do as a people to overthrow this kind of idiocy?
