Comments on The Belmont Club,
"We have to make judgements very fast"


Spector gave an interesting insight into how Congress actually works. What he said was that no one reads the whole bill and they just divide it up with each Senator reading a chunk. So if twenty Democratic Senators each take responsibility for fifty pages and if that really means that each gets a summary from a staffer of their portion of the whole, then 60 or more Senators will consider that assurance sufficient to pass legislation. This was described as a normal practice. These are the same Senators who passed Sarbanes-Oxley to criminalize less sloppy procedures in running a publicly held company.
