The Death of Representative Government

Your federal government at work:
“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”
Yea, what's the big deal; it's not like these cowards are charged with writing and passing the laws that govern all of us from the barrel of a gun. Hope and Change, baby!

More here:
Thousand-page bills, unread and indeed unwritten at the time of passage, are the death of representative government. They also provide a clue as to why, in a country this large, national government should be minimal and constrained.
