    Thanks for posting that. He looks like he's not so steady on his feet, eh?

    No, he does not have a good point. As a member of Congress, who will vote on this to either become law or not, its his damn DUTY to understand just what it is he's voting on!

    What would happen to an attorney that did not study his case, or an engineer who didn't look at specs on a bridge, or a surgeon who didn't review a pending surgery,,,,would you want these working for or on you????

    Why must we just ACCEPT what they do???? Remember 2010!!!!!

    In all your examples you sited licensed professionals who can be sued for malpractice.

    These guys only have to do what they are told by Obama. Life is simpler that way.

    You are giving politicians way too much credit.

    I'll agree with Tim on this, it is their duty to understand what they are voting for or against. It's called work, a lot of people have to work to keep their jobs, why should a senator be any different. Time to start 'downsizing'.

    A substantial percentage of the Democrat voters fit this mold. One will find more Democrat voters that are apathetic, ill or uninformed than voters that normally vote Republican. This widespread ignorance is what the Dem politicos count on to retain office and power. The next revolution won't get here to soon....

    Seems to me that there has never been a better reason to delay the vote. It shouldn't be voted on until everyone has had a chance to read and have explained to them. Not voted on when the Messiah says so.

    Gentlemen:

    Conyers is a liberal hack and political buffoon that has (mis)represented Michigan's 14th Congressional District since 1965. As MTA Tom noted, Conyers' wife a political hack in her own right, is an admitted thief. The last I heard, she was still the target of an FBI criminal investigation.

    It's little wonder Conyers doesn't read pending legislation. Frankly, I'm not sure he CAN read. Even a casual review of his legislative history would suggest he lacks even a rudimentary understanding of the Constitution. Unfortunately, he chairs the House Judiciary Committee.
