Once again the allegedly "open and transparent" nature of the Democrat controlled Congress, escapes me. Last night, an Agriculture bill was tabled, although the Republicans tried to return it to committee for rewriting WITHOUT the perq's hidden inside for illegal immigrants. Instead of accepting the fact that most Americans are very bitter about the porous nature of our borders and the blind acceptance of them by the political Left, the presiding chair called it a tie and recessed Congress. Interesting side note: Who was paid to pull the plug on the monitor recording votes? Talk about a situation that needs investigation.....
The following senators voted Against making English the official language of America :
Domenici (R-NM)-His state is so impacted by this and he has no idea that there is an end at some point to political subsidies.
Now, the following are the senators who voted TO GIVE ILLEGAL ALIENS Social Security benefits. They are grouped by home state. If a state is not listed, there was no voting representative. Republicans who knuckled under due to pressure from political action groups, unions and general cowardice are in red. The comments are mine.
