Congress needs to do this for the sake of transparency! It's utterly DEPLORABLE how Congressmen are allowed to use a bill of hundreds of pages (for example) to sneak in a pet agenda!
EXAMPLE: Right-thinking Americans will be relieved to know that conservatives in the House joined the Democrat minority to kill the entire Water and Energy appropriations bill rather than allow it to pass with Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney’s transgender amendment attached to it.
In answer to the critics of this bill who say that Congress only has a finite amount of time to address the many pressing issues that they must consider, I have only this to say: Quit sponsoring bills that deal with nonsensical issues like "Should magic be made a national treasure?" I don't think that Congress wastes as much time as they do money. However, I DO think that they waste too much time on things of less urgency, instead of prioritizing bills, so that things like magic can be taken up AFTER they've dealt with more urgent matters. (Of course, it is entirely possible that what I think is an urgent matter may not be the same as what someone else thinks is an urgent matter. That doesn't make them automatically right and me wrong - or vice versa!)
