A major official has admitted that this most important public policy proposal was written intentionally so that it could not be understood by voters. From the story:
Hostility…will be intensified by a startling intervention by Karel de Gucht,…who suggested that the [bill] was designed so that people could not understand it in a bid to avoid “real debate”. He said: “…”People didn’t read the [bill], they didn’t understand the first word about it. No real debate about [it] could happen. This was a deliberate decision of the … Council.”
Oh, wait a minute. My mistake. He’s talking about the Lisbon Treaty for the EU, not Obamacare! Oh well, same arrogance, different continent.
