    whereas if they put it on a public forum, then they have publicized it, rather than colluding.

    Right. But a coded format using pseudonyms and not advertised to the general public is stretching the definition of "publicized."

    I mean, Obamacare was publicized so you have no problems with any supposed deception involved in its creation, right?

    I have never heard of these allegations before. If you can find them. I'd love to see it. It's always Republicans claiming that Dead and multiple people are voting for democrats in poorer communities.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Agree - it seems designed to meet the letter of the law while trying to circumvent it's intent.

    Actually they broke a promise on that one - rather than having it up for a period of time early so folks could read through and figure it out, key sections were still being written as it was passed.

    I read them, I knew the main points. Don't know why you guys didn't.

    Given that some sections weren't written until after the President signed the actual law, that's pretty impressive. Do you time travel often, or only just when reading jillion page pieces of legislation?

    Which sections?

    As for "jillion pages," one "page" of legislation is something most of us would call a "paragraph," due to all the formatting and line breaks.

    I even did it once with one of the earlier revisions specifically to write up a debunk for a HUGE litany of right-wing lies about the bill. (to be fair, they made it easy by making a ****load of claims with specific page numbers, knowing full well none of the right-wingers would ever bother to check their claims)

    Just another distraction from Benghazi, if you ask me.

    We already know you don't care if Republicans violate election law.
