Paul Ryan trashed Senate Immigration bill, admits "no one reads 1,000 page bills" anymore. Let's elect someone who does?

In a Mt. Pleasant Patch piece, Paul Ryan slipped up. At a recent listening session, he panicked. I had to read this three or four times just to make sure I wasn't missing something. Sure Ryan lies, but we have rarely seen him caught this off guard, saying something so unrehearsed and so desperately stupid in front of a largely Hispanic crowd, that it almost takes your breath away:
U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan assured hundreds of Hispanics Friday that undocumented residents would not have to worry about deportation under his vision for immigration reform ... Speaking in Racine at his 16th listening session with the Hispanic community, Ryan said he wants to put those who are in the country illegally on a type of probation. If they followed the rules, paid a fine and got a job, they could become citizens in 15 years, he told an audience of about 300. 
In what is an obvious stalling scheme to pass only border security, and to eventually forget about citizenship for illegal immigrants, Ryan tried to sell an unbelievably convoluted 5 bill plan. This at a time when Ryan's house of Republicans can't pass one bill that makes any sense:
Why five bills are better than one: Ryan said at least five different bills that address his
He actually did say that...
four points could hit the House floor in October. Several members of the audience asked why he doesn't support the Senate bill.
Ready for it?
He said he can't support the Senate bill because it's too unwieldy, for one, at 1,000 pages, and no one really knows what's in it. "Passing legislation in stages is best because no one reads 1,000 page bills," he noted. "We've been doing that and how well has that worked?"
Remember that at the polls when you see the name Rob Zerban next to Ryan. We need at a minimum, a "reader" in congress. Is that too much to ask of our freeloading Republican politicians taking a taxpayer paycheck?

The Old Con Artist Returns: Again, Ryan refuses to give any of what we can only assume are the disgusting and repugnant bill killing details:
Still, Ryan said he wouldn't get into specifics about his plan until he had other members of the House GOP at the table with him. "These are the details that get hammered out in legislation so I'm not going to go into the fine particulates," he said. "What I'm trying to do is show where there's a broad consensus and how to get immigration reform that works. All these specifics ... that's something we're going to have to figure out."
Doesn't that just piss you off?
