Reid tried to minimize the skepticism that there is on immigration reform among some moderate democrats, with a view toward the legislative assemblies of 2010.

Reid added that still if the legislation does not count with the endorsement of all the democrats, the bill will surpass the votes needed to pass which failed in 2007.


Lets say that we lose 12 votes (democratic), that leaves us 48. But I am sure that we will find 12 republicans (that support the reform), I do not have a doubt that that will be the case, he affirmed.

Of course Mr. Reid like many others on the hill work for lobbyists (corporate and activists) and special interests.. Sounds like him and Sen. Feinstein are agressively trying to pimp the amnesty agenda..

Amnesty.... ha ha

They could pass it today and with the requirements in it only about 200,000 would be able to live up to those requirements.
