Truth Act

Federalist Paper 62 “The internal effects of a mutable policy are still more calamitous. It poisons the blessing of liberty itself. It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?” Alexander Hamilton/James Madison

 

Let your voice be heard that you support limiting the size and length of bills, and making bills coherent for the American people and members of Congress to read and understand.

The Truth Act*makes the bills simple not “voluminous” and easy to understand not “incoherent” for both legislators and the American people.† Thus, it will be beneficial to the people, and to the Republic, that “laws are made by men of their own choice.”

T-The bills (including amendments) put forth by legislators are to be limited to single subjects,†and THIRTY pages, with U.S.†legal code interpretations in the side margins. An accompanying version of the bill is to be written in 5th grade reading level for easy and nationwide comprehension.

R-The bills (and consequent amendments) are to be READ by the legislators – the new amendments are to be underlined with the old version included for clarity. They are to be available for the American people to read – at least thirty days before voting.

U-The bills (and consequent amendments) are to be UNDERSTOOD by the legislators.

T-Before voting on the bills, Congressmen and Senators are to TESTIFY under oath that they have read and understood the bills and consequent amendments to the bills.

H-The American people are to HEAR the proposed – and final – version of the bills. The bills are to be read on camera and put online so that the people may HEAR (as well as read) the bill at least 30 days before voting on the bill occurs.

The indeterminably disastrous†effects of such voluminous and incoherent bills such as the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), Dodd Frank, the Patriot Act and the upcoming Immigration Bill are all examples of bills that were/are too voluminous and incoherent for both legislators and the American people, leading to America’s demise and Americans  loss of liberty.

8 Responses to “Truth Act”

  1. Robert Krause says:

    All Bills must be read by Legislators prior to signing off, and everyone, including those signing, is bound by the Bill.

  2. Yes, I support the Truth Act. Our legislators are elected to represent us, but if we cannot understand the bills written or if they are packaged with other bills not relevant to the same law, it’s set up for defeat and misrepresentation.

  3. Melissa E Lewis says:

    Yes, i support the Truth Act. Our elected officials are there to represent us (the ones that elected them). They should do their job in its entirety.

  4. Mark Strauss says:

    Our representatives must be held accountable for the decisions they make.
    If the laws they enact drive our great country forward toward greater strength for our democracy, they should get accolades, but if they serve other interests, like those of corporate lobbyists, the legislators should be punished. I propose hanging by their toes for particular amount of time, depending on the severity of their misconduct.

  5. Danielle Hayre says:

    Support the truth act!

  6. LaBelle Sturgell says:

    What a great Idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Becky Ferrell says:

    With a single topic, legislators have no excuse not to read in entirety and understand.
