We’re paying these jokers for…??? Oh, right. They have to do fund raising for the next election.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Tuesday that the health-care reform bill now pending in Congress would garner very few votes if lawmakers actually had to read the entire bill before voting on it.

“If every member pledged to not vote for it if they hadn’t read it in its entirety, I think we would have very few votes,” Hoyer told CNSNews.com at his regular weekly news conference.

Hoyer was responding to a question from CNSNews.com on whether he supported a pledge that asks members of the Congress to read the entire bill before voting on it and also make the full text of the bill available to the public for 72 hours before a vote.

In fact, Hoyer found the idea of the pledge humorous, laughing as he responded to the question. “I’m laughing because a) I don’t know how long this bill is going to be, but it’s going to be a very long bill,” he said.

    Don’t forget. Inflation causes wages to rise and the tax brackets don’t get adjusted for actual monetary inflation so the gov over time gets more and more of the real wealth created and, the people keep less & less…

    The Progressives (left and right) are going to destroy freedom and civilization because they’ve now got enough tards lined up to vote their evil asses in.

    Enjoy the ride to hell.
