I expect another one is that members of Congress don't have time to read the bills they vote on.

Did you ever read the book (in the form of a year's diary) that Donald Riegle wrote about his early days in Congress, when he was still a Republican? It made some of the same points, although the situation was very different back in 1971 or so when he wrote.

If memory serves, I found it mildly amusing. He wound up as one of the Keating Five.

I have some doubts about this having been written by someone who was/is actually a member of Congress, but all the points made seem to be perfectly accurate. *sigh*
