Rand Paul on Congress not reading its own bills

Posted: February 7, 2013 at 12:30 pm   /   by

You hear about it in the abstract, but hearing a senator describing the fact that members of congress routinely vote on bills they’ve never read is deeply disturbing. It is shocking to think that such a thing could even occur.

This video is from last year, but it’s worth watching. It’s no less true now.
