In my idealized world anyone who voted for any bill without reading it should be impeached and permanently barred from political office.
I do like that idea. Upon voting for any bill, a representative should have to sign (under penalty of perjury) that they have read and understood every provision. That would stop passage of quite a bit of legislation, and it would ensure that proposed laws are more succinct.

I ran it past my legislators, and it received a somewhat lukewarm response. Imagine that.
