Congress has a reading disorder, according to new voters survey.

A Rasmussen Reports national survey finds that only 11 percent of likely voters believe most members of Congress read laws before they vote on them. Sixty-five percent said don’t think that’s the case, while 24 percent said they aren’t sure


Similar poll taken last year just prior to Congress’ vote on the Democrats health care reform bill showed that only 20 percent of voters believed most members of Congress understood what was in the plan.

The current telephone survey, conducted over the weekend, also shows that 82 percent of voters said that — except in extreme emergencies — legislation should be posted online in final form and available for everybody to read before Congress votes on it. Only 8 percent disagreed.
