Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) admitted this week that he would vote against health care reform without reading the bill, or knowing what was in it.
At a town hall meeting Wednesday Sen. Jim Inhofe told Chickasha residents he does not need to read the 1,000 page health care reform bill, he will simply vote against it.
"I don't have to read it, or know what's in it. I'm going to oppose it anyways," he said.
Inhofe said he was able to form such a strong, yet uninformed opinion through polls and the media.
Republicans challenged Democrats to read the whole bill this summer -- even though Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell later admitted that he hadn't.
In July, Inhofe said that stalling or blocking health care reform would be a "huge gain" for Republicans in the 2010 election.
They should ALL have to read AND understand it enough to explain it to their constituents. WTF is wrong with people anymore? This is what they get paid for. Nowhere else but a government or union job could you get away with not doing your job without getting your ass fired. No one representative represents constituents of only ONE party. It is their duty to read everything that they are voting on.

How does Marshall know what criterion is being met or not if he refuses to read it? He doesn't--he is only refusing because it isn't a Republican congress and this is his public admission of a temper tantrum. Typical, typical, typical Repube.

Typical, typical, typical Repube.
Guess that behavior is only acceptable in Democrats. They are voting FOR something they haven't read, he is voting AGAINST something he hasn't read. Since there are more Dems in Congress than Repubs, that makes this TYPICAL DEM BEHAVIOR.
