Although we’d like to see all lawmakers read all the bills they sign, we understand Rep. Conyers’s (D-MI) exasperation when he says the 1,018-page House health care bill is indecipherable without a a pair of lawyers to translate it. So maybe each lawmaker should get a whole team of lawyers to help read it?

For taxpayers’ sake, let’s hope these lawyers don’t charge by the page: at $1.3 trillion, the bill clocks in at $1.264 billion per page

Better yet, lawmakers should write a bill that makes health care portable and affordable… and decipherable.
