Does it seem especially amusing to you that many of the folks who worry that the various pieces of legislation concerned with health care reform are filled chock-a-block with dangerous schemes to bankrupt and murder innocent Americans, claim to have read the legislation (or some legislation) in its entirety? It occurs to me that the fantasies many of these same people are spouting about reform provides the best argument for the practice among congress members of hiring aides with special policy expertise to analyze and summarize various aspects of complex legislation.

Of course, the claims may only reflect the inability of many of the health care reform opponents to parse English, since an equally large number seem to believe that it is a physical impossibility to read and digest a relatively large document.  These are the same characters who profess to be outraged that legislation involving numerous complex and interrelated issues is not addressed in a few pages that can be easily digested by regular readers of the National Enquirer.
