I’m a little perplexed about the $787,000,000,000 bill that was passed in both houses of Congresss today. The full text was not posted until around 11:00 PM last night. It was over 1,000 pages long. Debate in the house started this morning at 11:43 AM. By 11:00 PM tonight, it had passed votes in both the House and the Senate.
That means in about 24 hours we had an almost $800 billion dollars go from final draft to law. This is after a Tuesday vote, three days ago, in which the “House unanimously approved a non-binding motion that called for members to have at least 48 hours to review the measure before voting on it.”
I’m sure most people in Congress vote on bills without reading them in their entirety. But at least they can let us think they might possibly have the time to read such a significant piece of legislation, couldn’t they?
Apparently, they didn’t want to even give us the illusion that they were informed in their vote today.
I’ll quit before I say something I regret.
