The Republicans oppose categorically the Democrats' energy bill coming through soon, which contains cap and trade legislation.

With little power, Republicans just want to slow this bitch down.

They may demand that the 946-page bill be read aloud, in that case.

The Democrats counter... by hiring a speed reader.

This guy is capable of reading a 1,000 page bill in less than 10 hours.

See, you know this happened in the House, because Senate Democrats unanimously suck shit.

I love that when it's proposed that our lawmakers actually read a bill they try to find a way around that too.

So you like one party rule 'eh? At least there's some checks and balances left that will promote the general welfare.

I have to admit that is pretty hilarious! ROFL

I don't believe you. Forgive me if I'm missing your sarcasm.

The zinger at the end of the video ("this bill has created one job") is golden.

...it just shows you what a mickey mouse admin this is becoming...signing bills in to law that haven't been truly read...how many now?

eventually the only thing left for him to sign will be eliminating our sovereignty..built upon the backs of psuedo guilt and self loathing...

I think the problem is the further right we went the further left the swing is....

As far as the fair tax goes, good luck. The people who'd get screwed by it are now involved in politics more than ever.
