Next on the Menu - Amnesty

That the administration's next big push will be amnesty should not surprise anyone. Dick Morris warned of this during the campaign in 2008 and others have pointed out that the costs of Obamacare will seriously explode if covering illegals were part of the calculus. But now that Obamacare has passed, exploding its costs will just put pressure to raise taxes. Further, it will help buy votes from the newly amnestized. This is why I will oppose any efforts by the administration on this issue; no matter how reasonable they try to sound. They will lie about their real intention to get millions of new voters on the rolls hooked on government subsidies and voting Democrat for life.

Many of you know that I once favored some kind of immigration reform and I still do; but not under this administration and not while this health care legislation is on the books. I also want to be clear that there should NEVER be a path to citizenship for those who have entered the country illegally. I guarantee you that if you talk to a Democrat leader today about this issue and you propose any solution, but indicate your unwillingness to compromise on the citizenship issue, they will call you racist and refuse any negotiation.

We'll see what comes next. Any Republican that cooperates should be challenged in the primaries. Lindsay Graham, that means you.
