In an effort to inform people about the ongoing health care debate and to make reading legalese less boring, a group of voice-over actors has banded together to record all 1,018 pages of the proposed health care bill, HR 3200. Politico.com reports that at HearTheBill.org, you can hear breezy renditions of page-turning prose like, “Paragraph Two, in such state in such year, Subsection E, Medicaid coverage for Medicaid eligible individuals, Paragraph One, in general.”

Everything sounds better when you get a sonorous voice to read it aloud. Especially that part about the death panels.
