    Pres Bush is pissed, Ted Kennedy is red faced, Harry Reid is crying, and a large majority of America is pleased



    Filibuster spoils 'bargain'
    By Stephen Dinan
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES
    June 8, 2007


    The immigration "grand bargain" imploded in the Senate last night under a Republican-led filibuster, with the bill under attack from both sides and collapsing of its own weight.
    In two votes yesterday Republicans blocked Democratic leaders' bid to end to the debate and hold a final vote on the bill -- each time joined by more than 10 Democrats. The vote is a crushing end to President Bush's highest current domestic priority -- and one of the few areas he said was ripe for bipartisan agreement after the 2006 Republican loss of Congress.
    In last night's final showdown, Democrats couldn't even muster a majority of the Senate, losing 50-45, 15 votes shy of the 60 needed to break the filibuster.
    "The headline is going to be 'Democrats vote for the bill, Republicans vote against it, the president fails again,' " said Majority Leader Harry Reid, adding that he could not allow Republicans to take any more time on the bill because he needed to move on to other issues.

    ABC Frets Over Demise of 'Landmark' Immigration Deal; NBC Sees 'Extremes' at Fault
    Posted by Brent Baker on June 7, 2007 - 20:30.
    ABC's Charles Gibson fretted Thursday night over the likely impending demise of the “landmark” immigration deal as George Stephanopoulos blamed conservatives and on NBC Chip Reid faulted “extremes on the left and the right.” Gibson teased World News: “Tonight, the landmark compromise on immigration is in big trouble on Capitol Hill. Some Senators saying if we can't pass this, we can't pass anything.” Gibson proceeded to assert that the bill “was considered the best hope for doing something on immigration.” After a story from Jake Tapper on the debate in the Senate over “killer” amendments, Gibson expressed frustration to George Stephanopoulos: “What's so counterintuitive to me, George, is that a lot of the Senators who think and say most strongly that something has to be done to reform immigration are the ones who are voting for these killer amendments.” Stephanopoulos held conservatives responsible: “They are getting a lot of cross pressures, Charlie, particularly on the conservative side.”

    This is why this problem never gets solved.

    Unreasonable ideas of how to solve the problem always win out.

    Tell me yor plan to fix the problem and how much it will cost?

    This is how most reasonable Americans want it done:

    1. Follow the laws already on the books.
    2. Put up the fence and patrol it.
    3. Fine companies big time if they hire illegals.
    4. Stop providing welfare to illegals.
    5. Stop providing medical care to illegals.
    6. Stop allowing illegals to get drivers licenses.
    7. Stop allowing illegals to attend our schools.
    8. Stop the anchor baby idiocy.
    9. Make English our official language.
    10. Make legal immigrants proud to become Americans.

    These are not unreasonable ideas. If the above is followed millions will leave of their own volition and get in line if they want to come back legally.

    NO AMNESTY!

    PS: This plan won't cost taxpayers a dime. (when you consider how much it will save us)
