Queen of Pith has an interesting article up about the “stimulus” plan and the difficulty she had in finding out just what it includes. Because of that, she found it ironic that this statement is on Obama’s website:
Sunlight Before Signing: Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them. As president, Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.
Now, they are claiming this is an emergency
spendingstimulus bill. However, I believe this bill could wait FIVE DAYS for the public to attempt to read the plan.
I thought this was worthy of the dictionary.
non-emergency = emergency
