"[...] the fact that legislation could pass both chambers of Congress without closer scrutiny left at least a few senators chiding themselves for not examining its ramifications more closely."

Seems to be a pretty common situation. I wonder if there is a way to prevent one's self from voting on legislation that isn't understood or that has not been scrutinized?

Walmart does not.
They pay their employees enough to satisfy low wage rules while leaving them to drain state and federal aid.
All the while collecting tax breaks and other subsidies...hardly what i would call a boon for the society...

Really?! Gimme a damn break! Those bottles are a freaking pain in the ass! The lids are a bitch to open. And, the labels - puhleese! Half the time they don't remain stuck to the dang bottle! The color coded ring - what a waste! For three bucks you can buy a whole pack of Sharpie markers - mark your own damn bottles! The amber colored round bottles and white caps provide a uniform look and easy labeling which is less expensive for pharmacies. Pharmacies typically use color coded stickers as part of their critical warning labels. CVS' labels contain too much information for a simple label. Other pharmacies, use a printed consumer information sheet to provide interaction and main ingredient and causal use information. Labels typically, other than CVS, contain nothing but the prescribing physician's name; number of refills; original date of prescription; pharmacy name, address and phone number; the name of the patient to whom the medication is prescribed; the name of the medication; the dosage of the medication; and, the instructions for taking the medication. {None of which would account for all that tiny print indicated in the image!} The text on the label of my Rite Aid meds is quite large, I'd say it was a 14 pt font - it's certainly larger than the font of this comment!
