Congress Needs to Hold Hearings on Congress's Inability to Their Jobs

They can't even steal our money without fucking up:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The House of Representatives will vote again on sending the $289 billion U.S. farm bill to the White House to clear up an embarrassing clerical error discovered after the bill was vetoed, Democratic leaders said on Thursday.[...]

House Agriculture Committee leaders said a clerical error omitted the 35-page trade title from the copy of the bill sent to the White House. Congress is required to provide exact copies of its bills for the president to approve or veto.
If only this mistake could last. On another note, how depressing is it that bills are so large that 35 pages can go missing without anyone noticing?
