Exhibit A for Read the Bills Act

I've posted this at Downsize DC. Excerpt:
So, the Bush Administration "duped" Congress into consenting to an Attorney-packing scheme which allows Presidents to appoint friends and political cronies to the crucial position of U.S. Attorney, without Senate confirmation. Let's assume almost no one in Congress knew about this provision, or noticed it. Whose fault is that? Ten Senators and 171 Representatives voted against the Patriot Act Reauthorization. Is it their fault this repugnant provision was inserted in the Patriot Act? Or is it the fault of those who, like Sen. Feinstein, didn't know what was in the bill but voted for it anyway?
