There's plenty of reason for skepticism about speed in legislative deliberations. Things sneak by, despite the best of intentions.
For example, I learned from this well-researched analysis that the bail out bill would have created an option for banks to hold ZERO RESERVES against their transaction accounts.
ZERO RESERVES? Who thinks that is a good idea?
UPDATE: Not so fast on the not so fast. Another writer says reserves don't matter. Hmmmmmm.
