In reply to comment: One of the reasons (see in situ)

so...

your assumption is that the two are mutually exclusive:
You can't 'brow beat' politicians for 'introducing'(often SNEAKING IN) BAD BILLS..
and
at the same time be FOR pubic debate on issues.
hmmmm...
that presumes:
The ONLY way to HAVE public debate is:
by introducing legislation.
Nope.
I need ONLY point to the RAGING public debates that were NOT 'triggered' by ANY bill or Congress person: take your pick
NSA/Snowden
IRS teaparty
there's 2... need more?
