Do you think the lawyers reading the ACA legislation and the children reading Harry Potter are equal?
I'm pretty sure lawyers' reading skills outpace those of Harry Potter-age children.
Plus, the lawmakers are being very well-compensated to read legislation. It's like their one fucking job, you know?
If Trump and the GOP couldn't unravel the 3500 page health care law, how are they going to pull off reforming the tax code, which ran like twenty-three volumes (without addendums) back in the 1990s? That's not counting the judicial precedents which are now law. Hell, there's like several hundred pages of law that just governs the taxation issues related to owning racehorses.
