The following article is from Politico at The Crypt's Blog - Politico.com


By Patrick O'Connor
House Republicans approved a symbolic measure opposing the Senate's immigration bill Tuesday evening with 114 members voting to support it and only 23 members opposing it.

This bill is dead on arrival. This is good news if it ever gets out of the Senate. Harry Reid and this Clay Pigeon nonsense just may doom it.

Angry Don't stop the fight.....

I wouldn't beleive anything that comes out of the mouth of anyone in Washington, they lie worse than anyone else I've ever known. They tell you one thing to your face and then do their dirty little deals behind closed doors and laugh at the gullible fools who put them in office. We need to keep up the pressure with the emails, faxes and phone calls......don't let these treasonist politicians have a moments peace until they uphold our laws and respect the people who put them in office.

Just another way to try and get us to relax. If it didnt have a chance why would Bush keep pushing so hard. Believe nothing except that they dont represent the people of this country anymore.

The dynamics in the House are VERY different than the Senate. Some Senators don't come up for re-election for several years. The House...next year. By nature the House is also closer to its constituents than the Senate. The House represents the people and the Senate represents the States, as the founding fathers stated. I wouldn't be so pessimistic about the House, along with the Republicans, a good number of Democrats are opposed to this bill.
