Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) wants to wait 72 hours before voting on the healthcare reform bill so that the lobbyists can go over it.
“The thing that I’m trying to point out is we would have at least 72 hours for the people that the providers have hired to keep up with all of the legislation that we pass around here, and the regulations that we pass around here, to say, ‘Hey, wait a minute. Have you considered this?'” Roberts said. “That 72 hours, I think, is highly, highly important.”
I’m impressed that he’s at least up front about shilling for the hired guns.
