He is a co-author of McCain-Feingold, which I think took a whack at the First Amendment and I do believe, as well, hurt our party pretty significantly. And I think it's made money have an even greater influence in politics today, not less influence.
He also was one of the co-authors of McCain-Kennedy, the first bill, by the way, not that bad. About 5 percent or 10 percent of the people, by our calculation, got a form of amnesty. Most people went home.
Under the final version of McCain-Kennedy, everybody who was here illegally, other than those who committed crimes, was eligible to receive a Z-visa. For $3,000, they got to stay here for the rest of their life. That's not a Republican thought.
Look what we have here, romney said the bill was not that bad.

That's right. He did not endorse the McCain final verision. AND he has been on a no amnesty way shape or form platform since the debates started. He has not waffled or pandered from that position. He IS the only electable candidate taking that hard of a stance on the issue still in the race.

It doesn't matter because the original version contained some form of as you guys call it "amnesty". At least he is open to some of the people staying.

Five to ten percent compared to 100%

Yeah, blacknight, I mean, what's the difference?
