Wonder how bad legislation gets passed? Probably not, but in case you do…

This is Colorado, but it could be anywhere (“Pass the bill to see what’s in it“?):

This would be the same Colorado Democrat, Evie Hudak, who *bungled stats and dissed a rape victim.

So yeah, don’t read the pesky words, just flip a coin. Head it passes, tails it doesn’t. And we the people who elected these idiots lose.

*She pulled them from her thinking region, the one she sits on.

UPDATE: Twitchy has more reaction from the Twitter world.

UPDATE II: OMG, it’s only a billion dollars…

While lawmakers debated a bill that would overhaul the way education is funded in Colorado and result in $1 billion in new taxes, state Sen. Evie Hudak (D-Westmister) suggested that they “finish it up real fast in two minutes” without thoroughly discussing a proposed amendment. She also told Sen. Owen Hill (R-Colorado Springs) to “flip a coin” when he asked how he could possibly vote on a major amendment he hadn’t read.

“I’m going to take a quick straw poll,” Hudak said. “How many want to finish it up real fast in two minutes, raise your hand.”

“How can I vote on it if we can’t have a little more discussion on it,” Hill replied.

“Take your best shot,” Hudak shot back.

When the roll was called, Hill again stated that he couldn’t vote on something that the legislature hadn’t read and discussed more thoroughly.

“Here’s a coin you can flip,” Hudak said.

“I didn’t knock on 20,000 doors to flip a coin,” Hill added.

“You’ll pass for now, here’s a coin if you want to flip it,” she said condescendingly.

“Unbelievable,” a stunned Hill muttered.

“The 2012 cycle is Senator Hudak’s last election, as she is term limited and will not have to stand for reelection. She is certainly acting like it,” Revealing Politics notes.
