Not Reading Is Fundamental

Andy McCarthy writes, “Cap & Tax: Nobody Read It … Because It Doesn’t Exist”:

Nobody could have read the bill the House passed last night because there is no bill.  There apparently wasn’t time to pull together a finished product that accounted for the hundreds of pages of amendments because of Pelosi’s headlong rush to slam this lunacy through before anybody had a chance to learn what was actually in it. So there is no “it” that all the pages and pages of words can be found “in.”  Democrats have passed a concept — not a bill.
