HERE’S HOW SERIOUSLY YOUR HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TAKES THEIR JOB, (they hired a speed reader to legally fulfill their obligation to read the legislation into the record)… watch this travisty of governance.
When Republicans wanted amendments read aloud, committee chairman Henry Waxman (D-California) hired an oral speed reader, whose pace–far too fast for anyone to follow thoughtfully–would have reduced reading time to about nine hours. In the face of that threat, Republican committee members backed off. As a result, much of the 946-page bill hadn’t been read by most committee members before they voted on it.
Phone Kirtpatrick, Giffords, Mitchel, Grajalva or Pastor’s office and ask if they’ve read one tenth of this new legislation?
Within those 946 pages however, are the stuff that will increase your monthly utility bill dramatically. One public utility official pegged the increase to Arizona electric rates on the order of better than 60% before the dust settles.
Its all about *CHANGE*
