182 House members have signed onto House Resolution 554, which will require that a bill be published for 72 hours prior to a vote. Both congressmen and the People will have 72 hours to read the bills. Nancy Pelosi has not signed on to the bill. This discharge petition was first pushed by Rep. Greg Walden (R, OR) and was sponsored by Rep. Brian Baird (D, WA). It was introduced the same day the Senate Finance Committee voted against publishing the ObamaCare bill 72 hours before the Senate is scheduled to vote on it. There is a lot of evidence that our Representatives and Senators cannot read, because surely they would understand that they cannot pretend to know whether the General Welfare of the People is served or not without reading the bills. Therefore, it must be that they view the attempts to publish the bills as a means to pressure them to read them. This is embarrassing for someone who cannot read!
The majority of our enlightened congressmen, who god-like know all about each of us and our welfare, have not signed this petition. It would be great if it passes. It probably will not, despite the fact it is simple common sense. There are 435 members of the House of Representatives, so 182 members are still well less than half. The majority of the House members who have not signed onto this bill just might be really close relatives to Ardi, who could not read either.
