“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so
voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood…”
—James Madison, Federalist 62
Dear Senator Paul,
Passing the “One Subject at a Time Act” into law will make government more transparent, make legislation easier to understand, and limit incomprehensible and potentially damaging omnibus bills. This is a concept whose time is past due and an effort we appreciate you championing.
The salient elements to note are:
• This bill sets its own example by addressing a single topic, in plain language, that a bill should present only one subject at a time, and that the title of the bill accurately reflects the content of the bill.
• This bill would prevent future appropriations bills from affecting law not associated with those
• A set of consequences are designed for violating the intent of this bill when it becomes law.

God’s Law was written on two stone tablets. Ten commands to follow. Easy to read, easy to understand, no unnecessary wording and quite transparent.
But we have our Pharisees—they live to be self-righteous and proud. Check out their list of laws. Pages upon pages In fact the New Testament law was quite concise Love one another. Treat people the way you want to be treated. Respect. Love.
That is the way it was originally set up in our government.
There should never be additional Bills added to the original Bill.
Plus, must take 40 days to go over it including the public reading the Bill giving their opinion to pass it or not.
