We are talking about the government takeover of one-sixth of the nation's economy! Maxine Waters was made to look like an idiot when she was asked about certain portions of the bill, and she tried to bluff her way through with an answer before finally admitting she hadn't read any of it. The same experience was repeated with other Democrats.
I don't know, but there are two much more important documents that provide guidelines as to how to live that are much clearer and much shorter.
The most important, my NIV version of the Bible, has only 1,635 pages. Also, I usually carry around a pocket-sized version of the Constitution with all the amendments, including a copy of the Declaration of Independence. That booklet is only 58 pages with each page smaller than a 3x5-inch card. After these two works, we don't need many more laws.
