They also swollow much of the misinformation put out by people who are more willing to be angry then they are to listen and learn.

    Please then, because I want the full context, put it in context for us, and tell us how this is unreasonable to think that Pelosi was saying don't read it, just pass it.

    That is dishonest Joe. Debate, and discussion on ever changing provisions of this 2200 page monstrosity was not the final bill, and you damned well know it.

    Nonsense j. You're just drinking the koolaid. This is an old issue and there was months of debate. Only when republicans made it clear they wanted no part of actually accomplishing anythign did it move forward with them. I'm sorry you choose to believe falsehoods. I can't help you with that.

    Then why did the bill final version never appear for its 72 hour available review online like Obama promised, and why was it passed in the middle of the night....yeah, really above board.

    Why was it passed in the middle of the night?
    Why does it matter what time it was passed?

    J, what time of night was it posted? And what exactly was in it no one had a clue about? Please, be serious.

    Your memory is short Joe...

    When then-Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama promised not to sign major legislation until it had been posted on the Internet for public reading at least five days, trusting voters took him at his word. Now they know better. Not only is the actual language of what is likely to become the main legislative vehicle for Obama's signature health care reform not available on the Internet, it hasn't been given to members of the key Senate committees or the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), either. All that is available to those worried about a massive government takeover of our health care system is a 262-page description of the bill's provisions. Bill descriptions mean nothing and bind nobody.
