House Republicans reject illegal-aliens amnesty bill

Cross Posted From DeMediacratic Nation

“It was a serious risk when we left here in July with this cocky attitude that this would be a better political issue for us if we get nothing done on it, that was a real mistake.” – Sen. Mel Martinez, (FL)

This is the attitude of politicians too often – “let’s not do anything, talk like we are and then hold our breath and hope for the best; we’ve got time…”

They spend entirely too much time working on keeping their jobs, than actually doing them.

However, according to The Washington Times:

House Republicans yesterday officially rejected the Senate immigration bill that would grant citizenship rights to some 10 million illegal aliens now in the country.

Sadly though, this gets us no closer to a fix than before – at least it cuts out garbage that would show up in the “one size fits all” comprehensive package.

Dennis Hastert, after meeting with house leaders said new border security proposals will be put on the table next week, which I and I’m sure many others look forward to. Until then, I’ll just peruse the script so I know what to expect.

Speaking of a script; Senator Tedward Kennedy remained on the Democratic script in reaction to the rejection of the amnesty bill, decrying the “abandonment of (in)comprehensive reform”:

“After a summer of cynical immigration campaign events and years of cutting billions from border security funding, today’s announcement has more to do with solving a political problem for Republicans than solving our illegal-immigration problem.”

“Years of cutting billions from border security funding…..,” which excludes the $1.9 billion included in the most recent bill to fund the Iraq front on the war against Islamic fascism and an additional $20 billion to be approved as expected from Congress by the end of the year.

More cynicism from Tedward, in The Washington Times:

“While we all support more resources for border security, it is abundantly clear that these stop-gap measures are designed to provide cover for their failure to produce comprehensive reform.”

Bottomline Tedward, we the people don’t trust our politicians; we would like to make sure you idiots are serious about the borders. We want to see that it can be tightened effectively before we’ll let you go running around putting everything, including the kitchen sink into an “incomprehensible reform” that looks good on the surface, but does nothing.

We don’t need to revisit this scenario in another five years because of blowhards like you Tedward….do you hear me? Probably not as it is awfully loud in the bar..
