Vote to ask the President if he will Support Read The Bill


In the  few short weeks since we launched the Read The Bill campaign, more than 4600 people have signed our petition.

What the AIG bonus fiasco demonstrated was that Congress needs to take its time when reading legislation.  If we had 72 hours to read the Stimulus Bill, someone would have noticed the provision and fixed it before it became law.

Can you take a few minutes to help support Read The Bill?

The Nation is sending a reporter to a future Presidential press conference and will be selecting the question with the highest votes. Please vote for our question – we want Pres. Obama to take the lead and encourage Congress to post all bills online before they are considered.

And on a lighter note, CNN’s Campbell Brown endorsed Read The Bill!  Watch the video and then forward it onto your friends. You can watch the endoresement at

Thank you for all of your support.

    This is so much more important at the congressional level, before the bill reaches the president.

    Let’s focus on something unique to the executive branch.

    I asked the same question (where is the site that has bills during the 5-day period. I did not receive a reply. I think this is one of the more critical commitments that he made. It is important that he follow through.

    As a family that supported him (my son was a precinct delegate (at 19)), this is a great disapoinment.
