Center for a Just Society

“Pull Up a Chair” by Ken Connor addresses a recent back and forth between Republican and Democrat Senators over the issue of health care reform. Sen. Coburn (R-OK) is demanding that the entire bill be read from the floor of the Senate, a task that could possibly take more than 48 hours of continuous reading. Connor writes,

Believe it or not, America.  Believe it or not—against all reason or logic—Senator Coburn believes that Congress should read legislation BEFORE they vote it into law.  The nerve!  The audacity!  If you aren’t offended by such presumption, well, you should be!  After all, everyone knows that Senators have more important things to do than, well, the job they were elected to do.
