  • Some of them have already said that they won't be able to read it all, and the scary part about that is they'll still vote on it without reading it. They may get someone to read it for them and give them some Cliff notes on it but I highly doubt they'll be reading it themselves and informing themselves about what is included in the bills.

  • Ugh yeah something else isnt it...

    and why the rush rush when it would not take effect until 2013 or later? Gee hmmm wonder why...(sarcasm)

    Why at all when most Americans do not want THIS type of reform?

  • I did a search for the interview and found the video. It's very interesting.
