CNSNews.com – Conyers Sees No Point in Members Reading 1,000-Page Health Care Bill–Unless They Have 2 Lawyers to Interpret It for Them.

“I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.  “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?”

Mr. Conyers, I direct your attention to the following words:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

You may recall them as the oath of office that you have taken every two years since your election to the House of Representatives in 1964.  It is remarkably similar to the oath of office required for all active and reserve military personnel; in which capacities you served for much of the 1950’s.

How sir, can you vote aye or nay on any piece of legislation which you have not read and still fulfill your oath of office?
