Barack Obama "Public Will Have 5 Days To Look At Every Bill That Lands On My Desk"


Oh wait, except for the one that is the largest spending bill in American history!

History of HR 1

2/13/2009 Conference report agreed to in House: On agreeing to the conference report Agreed to by the Yeas and Nays: 246 - 183, 1 Present (Roll no. 70).
2/13/2009 Conference report agreed to in Senate: Senate agreed to conference report by Yea-Nay Vote. 60 - 38. Record Vote Number: 64.
Cleared for White House.
Presented to President.
2/17/2009 Expected signing by the President Signed by the President


When there is a bill that ends up on my desk as President, you the public will have 5 days to look online and find out what’s in it before I sign it.

So this looks like 1 day (which is less than 5), but even if we go back to when they voted it it through, on 2/13, that is only 4 days including a weekend which contained 2 holidays!

Not to mention, that the vote happened in Congress without them getting a chance to read it.
