But, as outrageous as that is, the Congress at least had the common decency to continue the charade that they actually do real work in Washington. It's been a game for years. Those elected to political office smile and wave at the camera, nod their heads understandingly, and tell us how they really do care about our problems. They shake our claws firmly and promise to head back to Washington and get that done for us...
...and then they get into a private jet, smoke a cigar, and fly to their summer home on Martha's Vineyard.
But no, now that facade is gone thanks to Representative John Conyers (D-MI), who has decided that reading the legislation is just not worth it:
"What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill? "
C'mon John, at least LIE TO ME. Has it gotten so bad down there that these people don't even think the appearance of propriety is required? Is a T-Rex going to have to chomp a Congressman?
