    I imagine this will be the standard answer. Just follow the DNC talking points and the propaganda.

    not being a legislative geek, I have not. I suspect most of what I will read is indecipherable.

    there are sources and people I trust to interpret things and that helps me to decipher legislation.

    I always see average citizens try and interpret legislation...and it is like posting at an internet message board where insanity poses as reason.


    I'll let you know what I think.

    Why don't you offer an analysis...an informed and reasoned one? You are the one posing the question. Have you no faith in your abilities?

    I have complete faith in my abilities. I have just scanned it and haven't dug into it yet. With legislation, you have to read it more than once. The first time is just to familiarize. When I get through it have a good grasp on the language, I'll comment. I was just curious if anyone else has read it or just the talkng points.

    That 2074 pages translates to more like a 350-400 page book. It really isn't all that of a stretch to read.

    BTW, that was a "tongue in cheek" comment. As in it sucks to read, not so much the content. When I get through it, I'll comment.
