No Member Actually Read the Bill

No Member Actually Read the Bill

By a vote of 246 (yeah) and 183 (no), the US House passed the historic (and pork laden) Federal stimulus bill. After the appropriators, big spenders and Democrat leadership made more changes in the bill, it ended up being 1,100 pages long.   It is doubtful, that except for lobbyists and Congressional staffers (who saw parts of the porkulus bill), no member of Congress actually read the whole thing.    

Here is the Republican Minority leader (John Boehner) on the floor of the house:
