Reason Number One for Lost Liberty

There are so many, but it has to be chiefly because no one does what they are supposed to do in our government.  If you haven’t seen this yet, then you should check it out here. (source is CNSNews.com)

It is a short clip that I couldn’t get to embed here, but here is what he says:

“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?”
How can they vote on anything in good conscience without knowing what it says?  That is their only responsibility in reality.  They are the lawmakers and should actually know what they are passing.  I already mentioned the bill that didn’t exist in its final form when they passed it a few weeks ago.  Clearly, the Congress is completely broken at this point.

  1. It boggles my mind.

    They do not know what it says, or what it will cost…and yet they vote on it.

    Un-be-lieve-able

  2. Steve,
    I share your disbelief. Just think if we had a law that required the Congress to read and understand any law that they vote on. The whole works would grind to a screeching halt.
