Tyler, Texas (KETK) — We've been through the "Obamacare" debacle when Nancy Pelosi said, "We need to pass the bill so we could see what was in it," and every time I type that line, I cannot believe she was not laughed out of the country.
Now, we're being told the same thing about a 24-pound immigration bill.
The bill still leaks like a sieve.
The Weekly Standard caught up with five Senators who ought to know what's in the bill because they are touting it and voting for it.
The first was retiring Senator Max Baucus from Montana.
He was asked about hiring illegals for tax breaks which is in the bill.
He said, "We're trying to solve that right now. I don't know if that's been solved. I don't know. I'd have to look at it closely, I just haven't read it that closely to know."
Richard Bloomenthal of Connecticut said, 'I'd have to check."
Senator Tom Carper of Delaware said he was too busy to answer the question.
Senator Barbara Boxer of California replied with something of a non-sequitur before the Senators-only elevator doors closed in the reporter's face, "I think if you work for an employer who offers health care, you will get the health care you want," Boxer said. Spokesmen for Senators McCain and Rubio did not reply to a request for comment.
They don't know.
They're ramming it through for political and monetary reasons.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
