Democrats on the committee have hired a speed reader to read the more than 900-page climate change bill if necessary.
A request to have the entire bill read aloud is a prerogative Republicans have a right to invoke which could be used to frustrate Committee Chairman Henry Waxman’s deadline of Memorial Day to get the committee’s work on the bill done.
On the one hand, that is kind of a genius idea to block a potential obstruction.
On the other hand, I find it kind of dismaying that getting a climate change bill done may depend on someone like this guy…
Climate change. When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight.
