Obama, democrats and liberals said that illegals would not be covered under obamacare and now we are finding out the truth. We were lied to. Why am I not surprised? Gotta buy those votes!

And what the GOP is proposing is denying them benefits even after they become legal. Land of the free indeed.

I defy anyone to explain why immigration is "broken." Not enforced, yes. Disregarded, yes. Broken, not at all. Far more accurate to say that Congress doesn't respect the law of the land (aka the Constitution.)

The important thing here is someone is at least making a statement of common sense and responsibility. I don't believe them, they can kill the amnesty bill in the house thoughtb numbers.

In other words I think we're seeing the theatre of corporatism here. Congressional leaders will ultimately advance the party at the cost of the nation. Those who cry foul will be poo pooed, and we will be once step closer to very wasteful correction as opposed to responsible correction. At this point it seems only the need and certainty of correction is the sure thing.
