How Congress Works

Or, How It Doesn't Work

Here, Rep. Price of Georgia asks how members can vote on an over 1000 page bill when they haven't had time to read it. He is told that it has been "considered read".
In other words, the Speaker admits that it hasn't been read, but the members voted that it was. These are the people making decisions and passing laws that affect all of our lives.
