What's in a 600-page bill?

Watch Sen. Rand Paul (R.-Kentucky) as he takes off on a 600-page bill he received that was to be voted on before he and other U.S. Senators had time to read and understand it. He received the bill that morning and expected a vote on it that day.

Of course, reading it and understanding a bill are two different things.

And by the time you could read a 600-page bill, think somebody might have slipped in some changes?

It shouldn't matter what political party you are. Voting on something you don't know about should never happen.
