Rand Paul: teaching Congress to read

I like the cut of this guy's jib:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) introduced legislation that would force the Senate to give its members one day to read bills for every 20 pages they contain.

"For goodness sakes, this is a 600-page bill. I got it this morning," Paul said Friday, just before the Senate approved a massive bill extending highway funding, federal flood insurance and low student loans rates.

"Not one member of the Senate will read this bill before we vote on it," he added.

Paul also introduced related legislation Friday, S. 3359, that would prohibit the inclusion of more than one subject in a single bill.
Since they're essentially illiterate preschoolers now, maybe he should phase it in slowly. Like for the first year make it one day for every 5 pages, then after 10 years they could sit at the big boys table and read 20 or more. Nobody likes doing too much homework now Senator Paul.
