Comment: Peanuts

Peanuts

a. Nobody reads big important legislative laws (except those whom the lobby represents.) Think, how long does it take to read 300-2,000 pages of "technical" paper with cross references to another 10,000?

b. Sneaky laws will always be brought for a vote unexpectedly so even members of the house have only 2-5 hours to read. Amendments often are voted on the spot.
