Lengthy bill = mischief

What do Americans think of 2,000 page health reform bills? Here’s what Zogby found out:

More than 80 percent of Americans agree that Congress drafts lengthy, complex bills to hide spending on special interests and to prevent constituents from understanding what’s in them before a vote is taken, according to a new survey. According to a Zogby poll conducted last week, 83.5 percent of respondents agreed at least “somewhat” with the lengthy-bill premise, and 61.2 percent of Americans agreed strongly. Only 14.4 percent disagreed, and just 5.8 percent did so strongly.

    I think that survey shows that the push by the Repblican party to promote the image of Dems as corrupt lawmakers is working. Nothing like as strong dose of paranoia to swing the vote.

    The problem is that what most believe is a conspiracy, is nothing more than the intrinsic indecisiveness of group-think.
