JOHN CONYERS: I love these members that get up and say, 'Read the bill.' What good is reading 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?
Conyers cannot be serious. It's as if he's saying, "Boot me out of office. I'm not fit to serve."
How could he admit to being derelict in his duty as a lawmaker and argue against reading something as important as the health care bill?
If Conyers needs two days and two lawyers to understand legislation, then as a member of Congress he better make sure he has two days and two lawyers.
By the way, Conyers is a lawyer.
