Yep, pay them enough money and they will ignore language in a bill that renders them voting on anything a non-issue (and I am surprised that various Trumpers haven't tried to move forward an Enabling Act in the middle of some 2.376-page last-minute avoid-a-government-shutdown spending bill).

Voss added that "because of the time pressure" and general focus on other, more notable aspects of the law, it's possible that the measure was insufficiently scrutinized.

"We were much too busy working to suppress speech in favor of commercial interests to notice that the measure was included -- a measure which also just happens to suppress speech in favor of commercial interests," he explained.

/"I am shocked, and promise that this will be fixed," he added, giggling.

He was visibly upset when he realized he could no longer take photos or videos of himself at soccer matches.  "I had no idea that was in there."
