Sad State of Our National Political System

Thank you, Senator, for explaining why I don’t like our national political system:

“I don’t expect to actually read the legislative language because reading the legislative language is among the more confusing things I’ve ever read in my life.”

-United States Senator Tom Carper (D-Vermont)

I don’t want this to be taken as a partisan criticism – it isn’t (I’d disgustedly point this out if any politician said something along these lines).  Granted, this comes from a partisan source, Senator Carper actually said these words.  Admitting that you don’t read legislation that will have long term consequences on our country just shows the sad state of our national political system.
