Fiscal Cliff Bill: Can you read a 154-Pages in 3 minutes and then be able to pass a test on it?

Nah...I didn't think so.

With all that pork that was snuck into the Fiscal Cliff Bill, It's to bad funding for a speed reading course for our Senators and Representatives wasn't included:
The U.S. Senate voted 89-8 to approve legislation to avoid the fiscal cliff despite having only 3 minutes to read the 154-page bill and budget score. 
Multiple Senate sources have confirmed to that senators received the bill at approximately 1:36 AM on Jan. 1, 2013 – a mere three minutes before they voted to approve it at 1:39 AM. 
The bill is 154-pages and includes several provisions that are unrelated to the fiscal cliff, including repealing a section of ObamaCare, extending the wind-energy tax credit, and a rum tax subsidy deal for Puerto Rican rum makers.

Test? Test! Nobody said there was going to be a test. It's just not fair. First a drug test, then a field sobriety test and now a reading test. Next you will tell me there's going to be math. OMG, the inhumanity.
