No, only jobs created that help the Dems. Typical "end justifies the means" mentality. And apparently the WH intervened to push the VISAs through.

Can't the same be said for the Keystone pipeline project? So laws can be broken to benefit the rich and powerful? So much for the message of the OWS crowd. Business as usual, US law be darned.

What would you think of your rep letting 300 million bucks of investment on property that will create velocity of money and jobs just walk away? Would you want him to just stick to some rule or fight for a exception to the rule? I see no big deal here, Harry fought for his constituents and most likely his palms were greased, that the way our democracy rolls.
