Not one member of Congress has read the stimulus bill that's about to become law.

I'm glad the Democrats think this is funny.

When asked members of both parties on Capitol Hill on Thursday whether they had read the full, final bill, not one member could say, "Yes." ...

Both Republicans and Democrats told they were eager to read the unseen bill--once they could get get their hands on a copy of the final legislation.

Nonetheless, members from both sides of the aisle in both the House and Senate admitted they doubted they would have adequate time to read the bill before they actually voted for it. ...

Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.), President Barack Obama's successor in the Senate, seemed baffled by the thought of actually reading the entire bill--as did his press secretary.

“I think it’s about 800 pages,” Burris's press secretary said before laughing lightly. “We’ll do the best we can.”

Screw you, Congress. If this doesn't piss you, you don't deserve to be an American citizen.
