Our View: Kill Reid-Kennedy Amnesty
The House Republican leadership declared war on the Senate immigration-amnesty bill last week, aptly renaming it “Reid-Kennedy” in honor of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) and liberal icon Teddy Kennedy (D.-Mass.).
When a reporter, noting the Senate is controlled by Republicans, challenged House Majority Leader John Boehner (R.-Ohio) on renaming the bill, Boehner didn’t miss a beat. “Two-thirds of the votes that passed the bill in the Senate came from Democrats,” he said, “so referring to it as Reid-Kennedy is appropriate.”
This single bill has the potential to do more damage to this country than any other in recent history. (Ok, the democrats "let's retreat in the war on terror" were more dangerous but c'mon, no one thought that those would pass)
If you stand with House Republicans against Reid-Kennedy, let President Bush know today by calling 202-456-1111.
I couldn't put it any better than this Mac Johnson column did back when the bill first passed. Read it if you haven't already.
