    Both sides are guilty of this.
    Presenting bills they did not even write nor know the contents of.
    This should be illegal. They should have to write the bills.
    And we wonder why lobbyist written bills have certain loopholes that fit certain groups or corporations in them.

    Politicians stopped writing most bills a long time ago, never mind reading them. Corporate lobbyists or special interest groups write the majority of the bills.
