First off, allow me to say that this happens on both sides of the aisle... the Republicans did the same thing with the Patriot Act. So it's not an indictment of a specific party so much as an example of the degree to which our system is broken.
Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee mocks the idea that members of Congress should read the bill before voting on it.
I love the implied corollary that even if they took the time to read it, members of Congress wouldn't be bright enough to understand it.
Can't say I disagree.
