Elusion of True Reform,
The Senate passed, and praised each other for passing, a "hard immigration reform Bill". They see this as countering the House bill, that they feel was excessively strict. They say, and as the main stream media loves to point out, that this is a more compassionate, but very strict reform. It is not in anyway a free ride for those that break our laws. It is a serious reform to fix a serious problem.
Are you kidding me? Now I’ve been talking about how I do not want mass deportation. I do not want these people to be charged with felonies, just because they are trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. I thought that the House Bill had potential. Then the Senate, Lead by Senators Ted Kenney and John McCain passes this one.
So what is the difference? Why is it evident that these people have lost their minds? Just look at the Bill. First folks, you put McCain and Kennedy in agreement, and you know there is something wrong. But this Bill claims to be hard on boarder security, the thing that most Americans, regardless of political affiliation, agree is the main problem, yet a last minute amendment proves this to be false as well.
You see folks, they do not want to stem the tide of Illegals. Why? Cheap labor, increase in the size of government to "help" these people, and new voters. This is not an immigration reform Bill. Make no mistake about it.
Let’s see. This Bill allows Illegals to stay in the country and earn a path to citizenship. Absolves them from the legality of identity theft. Forces Illegals to only pay up to three years of back taxes, no matter how long they were here. Here is the big one. The reason this will never pass the House no matter how much pressure is put on them by the White House, which has already started by the way, is that this Bill requires the US Government to consult with the Mexican Government PRIOR to building "the fence". Do not look for any fence, any time soon.
Another point of interest about all this is who voted Yea, and Nay. Interesting to see that those that are up for re-election voted Nay. Those who have the security of 2-6 more years voted Yea.. This should be proof to anyone with any kind of intelligence, that the Senators KNOW they are doing the wrong thing. They spend all this time and debate, ELUDING true reform. It is an illusion folks. They want you to think that they are doing what most of you want. Yet in turn, they are actually doing the opposite. They feel they are in a win / win situation.
It’s like this, if the Bill goes to the house and fails, which it will, they will say something like,
"Hey, we did the right thing. We created and passed a Bill the would be a step in the right direction. Look at how all the mass media has told you how wonderful our version of this Bill was. It was not our fault that this Bill did not become law. It was the House the failed this. It was the ‘racist’‘nationalist’ Right Wing Radicles that destroyed what we worked so hard on. Election is coming. Vote us in the House and we guarantee this Bill will become law."
Or, let’s just say for a second, that it DOES make it passed the House. It becomes law. No need to do anything more about it. No reason for the Media to report on it. The issue will go away. No fence will be built. Nothing will be done to enforce boarder security other than show stuff, and they will be praised for creating this "Law".
Do they really think we are this stupid? Do they really think we will forget those that voted this lame duck Bill in? This in essence puts Illegal Immigrates, before those doing the right thing (legal Immigrates), above the law, and above actual American born citizens.
I dare ANY of you to go to the IRS and say, I’m not paying taxes for five years, but I’m only paying back three. Or say to a District Attorney, yeah, I committed Identity Theft, so what, just give me another Social Security number. Oh, and while you are at it, I want to collect on SS Benefits. See what happens to you.
These politicians really are so far out of touch, they cannot even see the people that put them in office. They are not fooling anyone with this Bill. Well, at least not anyone who does not CHOOSE to be fooled. I am almost willing to guarantee that this is nothing more than a dead Bill. Should be interesting to watch though.
