It is pretty strange that wsmith is so ill informed. Harry Reid's 2300 page bill, was presented at about 3AM and voted on the next morning. No Senator, none, or his staff had any chance to read that bill. As soon as the Senate passed the bill, it was sent to the House where Pelosi scheduled a vote. No Representative, none, had a chance to read the Reid bill.
Saying something was debated for a year is not the same as saying anyone, including the authors, had any idea of the bill that was passed. To argue that they did is both "stupid" and a pathetic "lie". Your words.
