A Modest Proposal

February 6, 2009

The Porkulus Bill (Hat tip: the guy who was filling in for Rush today) is 736 pages long. If ANY Senator has actually read the whole thing, I’ll walk naked down my street.

My proposal: No piece of legislation should be more than 10,000 words long. If you need more space, write another bill. That’s  a generous length, but still allows we the people to read and understand what our representatives are deciding on our behalf. If something like the “stimulus” is so important it must be passed RIGHT THIS SECOND, then let’s make it a concise, tight piece of work. These bloated legislative monstrosities are designed to hide pork and ridiculous programs from the people. Congress should not be allowed to do so.
