Letter: Recall lawmakers who don't read bills

This should be standard operating procedure in our government, supposedly a government by and for the people — 30 days to review a finalized proposed bill instead of "Here it is right here, vote now."

Sen. Crapo already supports the Senate bill just released without reviewing it! Voting "yes" in ignorance is following Z leader, not democracy. Again, taxpayers should have 30 days to review a finalized bill before their representative votes on it allowing for informed consent to the bill offered.

Your "representatives" voting not knowing the financial consequences of their vote is utterly irresponsible. The ramifications of their ignorance are probably going to affect your life negatively according to the Congressional Budget Office. Your "representative" who voted "yes" needs to be recalled immediately for not looking after the best interests of the majority of all citizens as a result of this total financial irresponsibility and disregard of their primary duty; representing your best interest.

Now the Senate is about to ram and shove their version of ObamaCare destruction down our throats without proper vetting. This is totally wrong and those who perpetuate this abomination should be immediately recalled and impeached. A difference of opinion between parties is one thing, but our "representative" voting for a bill ignorant of the facts is inexcusable. Recall them now before they do more harm!
