Honestly - I feel it should be illegal.
1.) A very large # of Senators and Congressmen have law degrees of some kind and thus should be able to decipher these bills just fine.
2.) If they are not or can not - why isn't there a lawyer appointed to both sides or for each Sen/House member to 'hire' their own to review documents in their offices and prepare reports for them - not unlike many CEO's ask their asst's to do; here read this and give me the highlights; etc...although I'd prefer my laws to be scrutinized a bit more than that!
It's really very simple; how can you possibly know how your constituents feel about a bill/law/measure if you yourself as their rep haven't bothered to read it? I mean come on now; that is just plain common sense. And I think we should all be letting them know that if they are not going to properly represent us; than we will make sure next time to elect someone who will!
