John Conyers Won't Read Health Care Legislation

John Conyers (D-Mich-14th) will not read the health care legislation because he doesn't have two days and two lawyers to tell him what it means.

John Conyers
Most bills are outrageously long and we know why. They are long so that no one will read them. They are long so that no one can understand them. They are long so that the sponsors get what they want. If you read this bill, which I have, you know that is no excuse for this 1000 pages called legislation. It doesn't matter the subject of the bill, it should never be 1000 pages. It should never be 500 pages. If Congressman and Senators have no time to read a bill before they make a law, then why do we need them? To vote without knowing what is in the bill is not representation. It's goosestepping. Below is what Conyers (D-MI) says in the video. It's better to watch it because he has some attitude. It's really short. The Congressman said what he meant in few words, and I understand it completely.
I love these members who get up and say read the bill. what good is it to read 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.
