It's been years since any of us knew what the fuck was going on in Congress. We've heard our candidates dubbed cancer supporters when they voted down a bill budgeting $100 million dollars for cancer research, only to find out after the election that the same bill allotted $500 million dollars in tax cuts for oil companies. That is why I am proposing some full-time, non-partisan scribe or page or whatever, who is takin' notes on that 'dem bills and can post 'em up on C-SPAN's website (SOME website, ANY website). We need it in a format that doesn't take more than 5-10 minutes to digest (because that's how long I can pay attention for). At least this way, I can check it out if I want to. As is, you can tell me Nancy Pelosi votes for mandatory abortions and Joe Wilson voted for literacy tests at the voting booth, and I will never know any better.
