Open Thread

When I was at YearlyKos, I found out about a bill that is so sensible that there's probably no way to get it passed under today's Rubber-stamp Congress. Nevertheless, we should learn about it and then ask our representatives to support the Read the Bill act. What it requires: bills must be posted online for 72 hours before a vote. What an idea. Think about what it would do to earmarks. Either you publicly make the case for your special project or it doesn't get funded. Check it out and if you think it makes sense, ask your elected officials to support it.

Okay, now it's your turn.
