Hey, we elect them!

During his speech at a National Press Club luncheon, House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.), questioned the point of lawmakers reading the health care bill.
“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?”

It would be one thing if he was making a point that the Bill is way too complicated and congress needs to simplify it and reduce it to make it easier to enact and follow. I would be cheering him on!

But, of course, he isn't. He is saying it is too complicated for HIM to waste time reading. He couldn't understand it if he did! So he will just vote "Yes" on it and leave it up to us to obey it and businesses across the country and doctors and lawyers to re-do their entire systems to comply with it. Billions and Billions of dollars will be spent on lawyers and experts and lawsuits and education and new departments and regulations and paperwork to teach the masses how to comply and what the new options are. But the leaders, who supposedly wrote the Bill, don't have to worry. No, they can't be bothered with understanding it... after all, they get to keep their current FEHBP Health Insurance. The rest of us huddled masses are left to figure it out. While we do, they will be off saving the planet with a cap-and-trade bill that they also don't read or understand the consequences of!
