Throughout the "debate" over healthcare reform, one of the GOP's most commonly used "arguments" against reform is that the bills have been too long, hard to read, and that they don't have any pictures. Think Progress links to some examples of that sort of illiterate bitching. Oh, but now? Mike Enzi (Wingnut-WY) says that the 2,074 page Senate bill is much too short!
And we talk about 2,074 pages, which seem like a lot, and it would be for a normal bill that you could debate in a limited period of time, which is what we’re being asked to do. But 2,074 pages isn’t nearly enough to cover health care for America. So why is it only 2,074 pages?
