Ah! Although the above picture doesn't appear to be dated, this would help to explain why DC lawmakers can't find the time to read lengthy healthcare bills.

And speaking of healthcare legislation, note that the USSC has already decided that Congress has no power to regulate healthcare.

“Direct control of medical practice in the states is obviously beyond the power of Congress.” --Linder v. United States, 1925.

Finally, as a side note about lengthy, difficult to read legislation of any kind, please consider the following. Such bills are likely a way for corrupt lawmakers to surrender their legislative powers to activist judges who ultimately interpret resulting laws. In other words, poorly written laws give Constitution-ignoring judges a license to force special-interest interpretations of the law.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Thank you for pointing out the omission...the AP photo now reflects the fact it was taken in August of 2009.
