    I just don't get why Democrats leaders would oppose this?...:cuckoo:

    (Rasmussen Reports)
    Eighty-three percent (83%) of U.S. voters say legislation should be posted online in final form and available for everyone to read before Congress votes on it. The only exception would be for extreme emergencies.
    AND
    Among voters, there is no partisan disagreement on the issue. Eighty-five percent (85%) of Republicans, 76% of Democrats and 92% of voters not affiliated with either party favor posting non-emergency bills online for the public to read before they are voted on by Congress.

    Even if the Senators and House Representatives don't feel the need to read the bills before voting on them, sounds like Democrat, Independent and Republican citizens do..!

    Democrats think the average American is too stupid to make his own decisions. We should allow them to think for us!

    The leadership opposed it because they claim it's "more stalling" and this crisis must be dealt with immediately!

    But none of the provisions of any of the bills we've seen so far takes effect until at least a year after passage. So obviously there's no actual, real hurry for reform per se, just actual real hurry to bumrush this through before that pesky, nosy unwashed public even knows what's in it.

    I think that most politicians are opposed because they don't want you to see all of the pork.

    It is stalling. The bill is available online for weeks upon weeks while it's being debated. So what exactly is the point of setting an artificial time beyond that?
