Great idea. I also believe that Jefferson's idea was most excellent, relative to any new bill. His position was that ANY legislation, once introduced, should remain available for review and comment for a year "WITHOUT ANY CHANGE TO THE TEXT", before it could be voted on, to allow the People to let their representatives know whether they did or did not support the proposal in the bill. ...The DNC and the atrocious qurap that it has foisted on the American People by their pro-communist leadership, or the atrocious qurap that the RNC has allowed to pass in the name of "bi-partisanship" all could have been avoided, had contemporary politicians had the testicular fortitude to demand such Jeffersonian controls over this absurd Congress.

Every piece of legislation having the status of 'emergency', even the delay to actually read the bills is intolerable to legislators, and the time it required would seriously interfere with fundraising for the upcoming election. Additionally, with the current state of 'eddykashun' as mandated and overseen by the federal government, most of the American public would be unable to comprehend deliberately obfuscated legislation.

Any addenda would not be "in the sponsor's own hand," and therefore, would not legally be a part of the bill.
Changes would have to be submitted as an entirely rewritten bill.

Dear Comrade Kerry,

In February 2007, when the terrible, evil George W. Bush was president, there were 2,427,000 more jobs than there are today.
