Remember back in the days when "we have to pass the bill to find out what's in it" was cool? Nancy Pelosi certainly does:
Fast forward to late September of 2023 during the debate over government funding to avoid a shutdown, and some Democrats called for the House to adjourn. The given reason was that the Republicans hadn't provided Dems enough time to read the bill:
WOW: Democrats just tried to adjourn the House of Representatives and go home — with just hours to go until they shut down the government.— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) September 30, 2023

Now: House is voting on a motion to adjourn called by Dems, a delay tactic to buy time before voting on clean CR + disaster relief. "Our intention is not to adjourn. Our intention is to read the bill," Dem Caucus Chair Pete Aguilar said. via @ArisFolley— Emily Brooks (@emilybrooksnews) September 30, 2023

She says Democrats want "90 minutes" to read the bill.
"That has been denied. We have serious trust issues. ... I am making a motion to adjourn."
"Reading the bill" is back in style for the Democrats?
Now @TheDemocrats say they need more time to read the 45 day stop gap spending bill.— David Webb (@davidwebbshow) September 30, 2023
Ohh, now they want to read the bill!
"We need three days to read a 71-page bill" brought to you by the "We need to pass it to find out what's in it" party. https://t.co/zYR0oexvFg— Joe Cunningham 𓅄 (@JoePCunningham) September 30, 2023
As the great Nancy Pelosi once said - we have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.— Gordon Shumway (@byg_tymr) September 30, 2023
Things seem to have changed since then.
