I remember our president saying we have to pass Obamacare so we can find out what's in it. We are certainly finding that out now, aren't we!

Here's a hypothetical situation. Let's say we need to pass a new bill that will change the way our judicial system works. President Barack Obama says we must pass this bill so we can find out what's in it. Twelve months later, all convicted murderers and rapists over age 65 will be set free. *
