Alright, I avoided doing so the first time, since you know.. opinions on funnyjunk.
But here it is:
All Congressmen are rational actors. What that means, is that they make there decisions based on achieving their goals via the most efficient (to them) means. The whole point of this post is to point out the lack of knowledge that Congressmen have when they vote on certain issues.
But the problem is, there is no way that a Congressmen can know the little ins and outs of everything that they vote on. Because they vote on so many bills, its impossible to know it all.
So they delegate. They give the work to committees, which are comprised of Congressmen who better understand the field. The committee votes and then reports (or doesn't but thats a different matter) the bill to Congress. The reporting process is a basic summarization of bills and it is used so that Congress can actually debate and vote on the bill on the floor.
Without these summarizations, we would have Congressmen individually leafing through thousands of pages of bills per day.
There are a lot of people who bitch about how slow Congress is. And there is a reason they are slow, because they are busy as hell all the time. If we were to add something like this to the mix, then they literally would not have time to do their duties.
And for anyone who says "Oh they could just have their aides read it for them":
Fuck you. That is no different then the way things work now. The reason things work in Congress the way they do is completely rational. People take logical short cuts to make sure that the institution (Congress) runs effectively.
Don't even get me started on the complex system behind how bureaucracy is monitored.
TLDR; Shit takes too long
fuck i have a final on this shit tomorrow
