be aware of two significant facts about the legislative process. First, almost all legislation is considered in subcommittees composed of from six to ten members. Second, most legislation enacted into law passes without any changes in the way a bill is reported from committee. With this background, don’t interest groups have to influence only a few members of congress to be successful? Why does congress rubber-stamp the work of it committees?
This and some of your other questions seem to take very cynical views of our government and American citizens.
The purpose of a committee is to research an issue and make recommendations to the body as a whole. No individual Congressperson has the time or resources to thoroughly research every bill.
