Too Big Bills

And once again we're seeing another debacle in Congress, where pretty much everybody agrees on the basic idea of a bill, but they're fighting over details and amendments that are mostly irrelevant to the supposed core purpose of the bill.  Maybe we should change the rules. Too many legislative bills turn into monsters, with thousands of pages, most of which have little or nothing to do with the supposed purpose of the bill. Maybe bills should be limited to 100 8½ x 11 pages of double-spaced 10-point Arial with 1 inch margins.  The exact number of pages may be arguable, but how about the basic concept?
What do you think?
