The non-profit, non-partisan campaign –first launched in September as a reaction to the confusion and misinformation surrounding what’s actually in the Healthcare and Energy bills --asks for a pledge from every congressperson, as well as the general public, to read these bills, and provides a link that allows visitors to easily download the major bills currently before Congress. Says DiMassimo, “Legislation has become increasingly incomprehensible throughout the years; it needs to be shorter and clearer. This would be a good thing. The original Constitution – without amendments – is 12 pages. The current Healthcare bill is just short of 2000!”

Since September, over 300,000 Americans have downloaded at least one bill from the website (www.ReadtoVote.org) and a highly animated national discourse has ensued.
