Amnesty Bill Now Incorporates Obama’s American Jobs Act


Good news. Amnesty is starting to make Obamacare look modest by comparison. The bloated Obamnesty monster now includes chunks of Obama’s American Jobs Act.

The original Gang bill ended with a section designated Title IV, which was headlined REFORMS TO NON-IMMIGRANT VISA PROGRAMS. The Hoeven-Corker version of the bill added a Title V, with the headline JOBS FOR YOUTH. The measure would provide $1.5 billion in the next two years to provide jobs for Americans between the ages of 16 and 24. It was originally pushed by Democratic Sen. Bernard Sanders, who wanted to come to the aid of young workers who were “hard hit by the Wall Street-caused recession.

According to Sanders, each state would receive a minimum of $7.5 million to run a summer jobs program for young people in 2014 and 2015. States with high youth unemployment would receive a lot more. Many of the bill’s provisions are based on
President Obama’s American Jobs Act, which Congress never passed.

Well it’s on track to being passed now dressed up as border security.

How much of a bill of goods are Republicans bring sold? They’re being bought off with the promise of security in a massive amendment that includes material from the Senate’s only official Socialist.

    Buying Hispanic / Latino(a) / Chicano(a) votes wasn’t good enough for ‘em, eh? There are SO MANY other votes they can Buy, including their own votes and each other’s votes, with American Taxpayer’s Dollars. Geez Louis!

    It took centuries to bring the Roman Empire down. Given the stream of ill-considered legislation coming out of Washington, I fear we’ve got only another decade or two at most.
