Senator Admits He Won't Read Healthcare Bill

Senator Tom Carper, Democrat from Delaware, has admitted he probably won't read the "arcane" language of the healthcare bill. 

Apparently, these bills start out in committee being written in "plain English".  Somewhere along the way, as it's being written into the legislation, it acquires language that is too difficult for the average person to comprehend.

Senators and representatives don't seem to be more intelligent than average Americans (in some instances, they're obviously less intelligent).  Shouldn't legislation be written in a way that can be understood by the majority of people? 

Just think for a moment:  Congress is poised to pass legislation that has the potential to further devastate our economy and increase governmental control over our lives.  It is the height of irresponsibility to vote on this without knowing what is actually in the legislation.  Could it be that they don't want us to know what's in it? 

What am I missing here?  What do you think?
