Quote of the reading of bills

"I love these members, they get up and say, 'Read the bill,'" said Conyers.

"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?"

THAT, is a good question...

In fact? What good are YOU if you sign legislation you don't read?

"What are you trying to convince me of, exactly? That you're as useless as an asshole [on my elbow?]"

Unbelievable. The quote of the day comes from the HotAir article on this subject;
If the elected representatives don’t bother to read the legislation, then we have surrendered representative democracy and adopted an autocracy of Capitol Hill staffers and lobbyists.

Seems to be how s*it happens here in CA. But it's not an autocracy, here it's a politburo.
