Have you ever wondered how laws get passed in the prestigious US House of Representatives? Well, here's an example from March 10th taken from the facebook page of my congressman, Justin Amash. Apparently, this scrawl was submitted minutes before a vote as an amendment and was the only version available for members to see.
Of course, nearly all of them voted without ever having seen it. It passed 278-147. Here's the roll call vote. And in the numerous pithy comments in Amash's facebook heading is one from a Bobby Cox which reads: Justin, how about on the next bill you scribble in "1 day after the passage of this bill the Federal Reserve shall be abolished."
With the level of vigilance most members seem to show that idea might actually work.
