    From the Document:

    I agree. And I would add that the Representitives should open it for discussion for a period of days/weeks for input from constituients.

    I would also suggest that they cite Constitutional Authority with any Bill up for consideration.

    They've promised to put bills up on the WEB and other places for constituients...and have failed.

    Yes I'm aware that thomas.gov does have these things posted...

    More as I read this...

    It's okay if I just go along with it with out reading it, right? :lol:

    I think for anyone to sign a Bill without reading it and knowing what is and is not in it is both an act of incompetence and negligence. It is a breach of trust. The garbage in these Bills is shameful, there really is no excuse for it.

    Yes it was. About time. We'll see if they follow through. They're on probation with the people so they had better be serious. ;)

    On the Surface? I like the idea of this bill.

    I would also suggest that a Bill stand alone on it's own merit. No more riders in the form of amendments that have ZERO to do with the subject of the bill. Those deals are part of what makes people angry with our legislators.

    It has to go.

    On the surface it angers the fuck out of me that there is so much abuse and negligence going on in Congress. Makes you wonder if they are even capable of wiping their own asses. We have some serious governance issues here. If it wasn't so pathetic it would be hilarious.

    This is published by a school journal, I'd assume a thesis or may be a professor.

    I concur. One thing is clear? These idiots are in it for their own agrandizement/personal agendas as this paper seems to suggest. The more I read it? The more I'm on board with this...[still reading].

    It's clear they don't care it effect on the people, but their power is more of import. I share your sentiments whole-heartedly. And this silly board told me I couldn't share more rep with you for awhile...too bad. ;)

    I thought that the pledge was that it would be posted publicly for x number of hours?
