No Taxation Without Deliberation

I came across this phrase today, in association with the "Tea Party" people.

Our representatives no longer read the bills they vote on. Why is that?

Because the bills are too big. Why is that?

Because most of our representatives no longer accept the idea that we have government of strictly limited powers.

So they vote without knowing
where our money is going
or how we will pay
for these games some day.
