I read tidbits - a page or so at a time - from bills of interest, usually after I've encountered a specific claim that seems like either wish fulfillment or scare-mongering. Usually I find that no bill is as good as it's supporters want to believe or as evil and detractors claim.

After I recently challenged some of her fears about the HR bill a friend - a busy mom of littles - admitted to me that she only knows what she hears on talk radio. Because the commenters she listens to claim to be working from the same philosophical premises she subscribes to, she's inclined to believe their interpretations (because "why would they lie? what would that accomplish?" And this is definitely not someone I would usually consider to be naive!
