Let Freedom Ring, a grassroots political organization, is circulating a petition among the 535 voting members of the House and Senate that is asking them to take a pledge to read the bill before voting, certainly not an absurd request considering healthcare represents 20% of our national economy.
Yet, as of the time of this posting, only 93 of our representatives have taken that pledge, 7 senators and 86 members of the house. That count includes 93 Republicans and no, none, zilch, zip, nada, the big goose egg, zero Democrats.
First, they didn't read the Patriot Act, then they didn't read Obama's Stimulus, then they didn't read the Cap and Trade bill. One has to start to wonder if our elected representatives can even read at all.
