      once you download the bill...I just do it because...I like to have the facts...

      If you oppose this bill fine...there is enough ligitimate stuff to oppose in the bill without hyping everything as a disaster...

        •  It is very complicated stuff... (1+ / 0-)

          And the way these bills are written and ammended makes them very hard to understand, sections refer to other sections all the time and then just for fun, they reference sections of the Internal Revenue Code on some issues...

          Complaining that nobody has read the bill is not too much of a false charge, I am sure there are some staffers who have waded through it as well as key members on each relevant committee, other than that...if people read the summaries (that are not always that accurate) it is a lot...
