How the Government is Using Fear Mongering to Pass Bad Bills in Congress

Representative Brad Sherman (D. California) unveils how Congress is psychologically manipulated into passing Bad Bills which become law without being studied or truly analyzed.

Congressman Sherman affirms that the only way they can pass a bad bill is by creating a panic atmosphere that is not justified. Unfortunately, it looks like this panic atmosphere is more common than we would like to believe.

Congressman Brad Sherman says and I quote:

"Many of us were told in private conversations, that if we voted against this bill, on Monday the sky would fall, the market would fall 2 or 3 thousand points the first day, another couple of thousand the second day. A few members were even told that there would be Martial Law in America if we voted No!"

"That's what I call fear mongering. Unjustified! Proven wrong! We've got a week, we've got 2 weeks to write a good bill. The only way to pass a bad bill: keep the panic pressure on."
