Quote of the Day – Rep. John Conyers on Actually Reading Legislation Before a Vote

“I love these members that get up and say, ‘Read the bill’. Well, what good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

-House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich, Friday, July 24, 2009, to a room full of reporters at the National Press Club

Will those of you who continue to send these type of elitist legislators to Washington, please remember this when it comes time to vote for them next time. Fire them. Send someone who is actually interested in understanding the life changing decisions they are forcing on the rest of us. Please!!
