US Senate Votes to Advance Obama's Secret Bill Hardly Anyone Has Read
[/quote]May 14, 2015 Source: American Action News by: AAN Staff

The Senate voted to advance President Obama's Trade Promotion Authority bill this afternoon by a vote of 65 - 33

The Problem? Hardly anyone, including those voting on it, has read the bill. The text of this piece of legislation is held under lock and key in the basement of the US Capitol. The only people who can see it are members of Congress and some of their staff.

If a legislator makes his or her way to the depths of the Capitol to view the bill text they have to hand over their cell phone upon entering. After they are done reading, any notes they take must be handed over prior to exiting the room.

We would tell you what this bill is all about, but unfortunately we haven't seen it either.[quote]

Every bill should be made public at least 90 days before voting on passing. If even a period changes it should reset the clock.
