Absolutely. Sudden votes on 1000-page bills is how they passed the ACA ("We have to pass it to find out what's in it"), and how they tried to ram through the ACHA. When you're in the business of overreach and restricting citizens' liberty, as governments, without exception, apparently and inevitably are, you should take the time to know which liberties are being restricted in which ways. Let's not have any haphazard tyranny here - the least you can do is to take your time and do it right. Read the bills fully so that you know exactly what freedom you're stripping away, or exactly how much more of your citizens' money you're dictatorially helping yourselves to, or what new burden you're placing on the free market's ability to innovate and solve problems and meet needs. A slow and steady creep of government meddling and intrusion is best.
