The Senate takes up revised immigration bill, but obstacles remain. Those obstacles are American citizens. I didn’t read that in the New York Times article. Opponents of the bill were graciously given “overnight to study the package of amendments.” Nothing like putting a lot of time and thought into something we will be stuck with for … another 20 years or more.
It seems several of the Senators took the $4.4 billion bribe they were offered to switch sides. President George W. Bush kept up the pressure, hoping the bill would be passed by Friday. As my hubby said:
I heard a caller on Rush today lament the following: (I’m paraphrasing)”Why couldn’t President Bush have acted with such zeal and determination when it came to something like social security reform?”
Instead GWB and Senate Republicans have chosen to lead us down a path that will destroy our country and our way of life. This will probably pass the Senate on a simple majority vote. Let’s hope it dies in the House.
Remember Congressmen/women, each one of you is up for election in 2008, and we need to see that every senator that voted for cloture today is voted out when their time comes.
Excellent point. We really NEEDED Social Security reform. We really need secure borders. There are LOTS of things this country needs, but this bill is NOT one of them.

No, I’m not going to list them here, and I’m not going to quote Freedom Folks response. You’ll have to go read it.
