House Passes 5,593-Page Spending Bill Worth Over $2.3 Trillion Without Anyone Having Read It

In the immortal words of Nancy Pelosi: “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.”

Because, as Utah Senator Mike Lee so rambunctiously pointed out tonight, the bill is so huge that Lee said it will take three hours just to print out. And they’ll still have to vote on the bill tonight. It’s unreal.

Lee noted that “this is by far the longest bill I’ve ever seen,” and added that members won’t be allowed to amend the bill in any way:

Here’s the really sad thing:  we’re being told that there will be no opportunity to amend or improve it. 

As a result, nearly every member of Congress – House and Senate, Democrat or Republican – will have been excluded from the process of developing this bill, which will cost American taxpayers trillions of dollars.

This process, by which members of Congress are asked to defer blindly to legislation negotiated entirely in secret by four of their colleagues, must come to an end.

It won’t come to an end until no longer works for those empowered by it.  That can happen, but only when most members of both houses and both political parties stop voting for bills they haven’t read—and, by design, cannot read until after it’s too late.

And so it came to pass that the House passed the bill… without a single member possibly being capable of reading it:

*HOUSE HAS VOTES TO PASS COVID RELIEF-FUNDING BILL; VOTE ONGOING

And in case you wondered just what is in it, we summarized the most egregious pork here… and what needy Americans will care about here.
