Read the Damn Bill

Just saw this on the rebroadcast of Greta on Fox – a great rant by Republican Illinois State Representative, Mike Bost.

Bost erupted on the House floor Tuesday afternoon, after the Democrat Speaker of the House, Mike Madigan and the Democratic party leadership called for a vote on a new pension reform proposal. Madigan had only introduced the bill that same morning. It passed on a six to three vote and moved to the House floor for discussion within a couple of hours.

The bill is hundreds of pages long, and Bost says lawmakers should not be voting on a proposal without first reading it.

Bost rails against the same Democrat “we have to pass it to see what is in it” logic that gave us Obamacare.

Yep. The Illinois House is controlled by Democrats.
