Scarborough: Passing Bills at 2 AM ‘Is No Way for Conservatives to Behave’
SCARBOROUGH: "A member of the Senate say they are doing what they do on lousy omnibus bills. They draft them on Monday night, they hide it from everybody, they drop it on Tuesday, you don’t have time to read it and then they force you to pass it on Wednesday. And then they have the guts to say to you if you’re a true conservative, if you really care for the cause, if you really want — I mean, you’ll hurt the president if you don’t do this! You know, you fall prey to that trick the first time. But second or third time, you learn to say, 'Well you know what? I can’t help the president if he can’t help himself. You’ve got to actually let me read the bill.' And here they are trying to restructure one-fifth, one-sixth of the nation’s economy. They're passing it at 2 o'clock in the morning and nobody has actually read the bill. This is no way for a conservatives to behave. This is what we accuse liberals of doing when they are trying to shove big spending bills down our throats."
