JUST FREAKING STOP WITH THIS CRAP, OKAY? House Immigration Bill Drafter: I Don’t Know What Everything Means in My Bill. I want short bills, regular hearings, and an open conference committee. No more big bills that even their authors don’t understand.
UPDATE: Reader Ed Lycett emails: “Wouldn’t it be funny if page 2731 of one of these big bills accidentally repealed the tax code, (or Obamacare), and nobody read it before it was passed?” You know what would be even more hilarious? If page 2732 required the Treasury to pay me the sum of $100 billion. That would be a scream!
