Not as Smart as We Think
Colorado State Rep. Jim Sullivan, who pushed to include the casino exception, apparently had no clue that this so-called loophole existed. According to Sullivan, "we're not as smart as we think we are."
Rep. Sullivan has just admitted his own incompetence and failure to do the job he was elected to do. Is it too much to ask that our lawmakers at least read the bills they are voting on?
In fact, there should be a law. If someone votes for a law they should be required to read it first. If not, they should be held liable in court for any consequences of the law.
Wait a minute, these people are already responsible -- we get to vote them out of office. Well, I guess that would require that us voters actually read the news. So, our politicians are safe.
