I mean . . sure, you'd like to read it.
But what's in it for Congress, other than having some written record of whatever they say being written in digital stone so it can haunt them the rest of their lives?
I guess I'm not seeing where it has a chance of ever happening.

I think the current system of debating is largely disorganized and the structure(especially in the house) makes it impossible to have a good back a forth with each other. A message board allows for a point-by-point debate and viewers can easily sift through the archived information in one centralized place. The unanimous opinion of everyone who responded was that it was pretty much a stupid idea for the following reasons:
1) It is a waste of tax dollars
2) It would just be politicians spewing out soundbites and talking points for their base without any substance and it would just devolve into a yelling match.
3) The speechwriters and aides would be making all of the actual posts.
