If only Barack Obama had gone through the legislative process, huh?
Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R, WI): "The executive branch has arrogated to itself something that the people's representatives in Congress rejected two years ago."
Just think about that. The Dream Act easily passed the House, and an overwhelming majority, 55 to 41, voted for it in the Senate. But Republicans filibuster everything these days, so it didn't pass.
But that's certainly not Congress "rejecting" it! Unfortunately, we've let the minority dictate legislation in this country. No longer do we have government by the majority.
The legislative process is broken. Republicans broke it. Republicans have pretty well destroyed our institutions of government. (Note that they are busy destroying our Supreme Court, too.)
Yes, Democrats let them do it, and I'm not happy about that. But I'm absolutely furious at what the Republicans have done to our country. (And then they have the incredible gall to lie about it!)
And speaking of lying,... how about that Fox 'News'? Is it any wonder that people who watch Fox are even more ignorant than people who don't watch any news at all?
