    IMO at some time the status quo for Congress needs to stop. By your statment are you supporting the way Congress has been operating for years? I for one am tired of partisan politics, riders to funding bills, and wastefull spending. Maybe the Dems don't have the courage to change. I used Dems because they control things at the moment.

    I don't care WHICH party is in power, this should NEVER be allowed, attaching non-related **** to bills.
    They're called "riders", and while they are technically against the rules, they are done all the time.

    Ridiculous.

    Now I hope the defense bill fails and then the Dem's stop playing politics by putting large, highly controversial bills attached to it.

    Then again, we have a President who told the Hispanic Caucus last night that he "faught hard to get children of illegal immigrants health care" so I mean, really, why not continue to pander to people violating our laws to assure themselves votes

    However hispanics do, is shown to be the fastest growing minority group in the U.S., and are generally on the side of pro-benefits for and ignoring laws against illegal immigrants.

    Wonderful, as I said, generally.

    Generally blacks vote democrat. Does that mean every black votes democrat?

    Generally southerners are considered more Republican. Does that mean everyone in the south is Republican?

    Actually, it's not.

    What the DREAM Act appears to advocate is that if, as an illegal resident alien, you can remain in the U.S. for upwards of 6 yrs as long as you complete high school and subsequently go on to graduate college. This effectively would give illegal resident aliens direct access to what could eventually become a "free" education or one at a significant reduced cost. Why? For someone who may or may not remain here?

    There's already a provision in Immigration and Nationalization (INA) law that provides a path whereby illegal aliens can become nationalized by virtue of serving in our nation's military (setion 1439 applies). I don't see a need to allow them access to our education system as another "path" to citizenship, at least not this way. They can apply for student VISAs like everyone else. If as a legislator you've identified a problem with this portion of INA law, you address that problem when immigration reform comes before the House or the Senate, but you don't try to tack a provision that deals with the issue of immigration reform onto a defense bill. That's just wrong!!

    Reid is so hard up for votes in November that he must insert a measure like this into an unrelated bill in order to try to garner hispanic support in Nevada. Like any self serving scumbag, he fails to see that he is only empowering those who oppose illegal immigration in Nevada, many of whom are also of hispanic descent. Just count down the number of days before this scoundrel is voted out of office. 50-49-48...
