Senate takes another step toward passing immigration reform

Washington (CNN) - A compromise amendment intended to ease congressional passage of sweeping immigration legislation easily won Senate approval Wednesday.

The 69-29 vote set up a procedural motion immediately afterward to limit debate on the roughly 1,200-page bill, which would provide an eventual path to citizenship for millions of immigrants living illegally in the country.

    "As do I but what about the ENTIRE book (New Testament) especially the letters of Paul? Chrisianity did not exist until after the death of Christ. In fact, the Christian church did not exist until Pentecost (as recorded in the book of Romans). So if you limit yourself to only the Gospels, you miss a lot of instruction!"
    Ummmmmmmmm... maybe I'm wrong, but it was Acts, not Romans
    I stand corrected. It was Acts. Thank you!

    They have to have an ID to get their food stamps. So showing an ID to vote should not be a problem.
    Oh, that's foul to say. But since you bring it up, the ID you'd need for food stamps are not acceptable by most Voter ID laws.

    "If you paid attention to what some of these states were trying to do in regards to voter ID last year, you would know it's not as simple as you make it out to be."

    It's ok...he thinks he clever by playing the game of mischaracterizing peoples' positions in order to give himself something easier to argue against. He knows full well, however, that it has nothing to do with what he claims is a belief that equates to low expectations of minorities...and that it has everything to do with the myriad blatant attempts to suppress votes we've been seeing over the past couple years, the rhetoric coming out of the GOPers/Teatrolls enacting these attempts to suppress votes that proves they are, in fact, intended to suppress votes and the massive piles of evidence and historical record that show these things actually do suppress votes from certain demographics. The GOP is trying to make an end-run around their demographic Armageddon and everyone knows it...and Tom is just clueless that patronizing fabrications about "low expectations" actually helps alienate minorities from the GOP/Teatrolls even further.
