They still think they are working with honest people of good will that have the best interest of the country at heart. They think this is just a difference of tactic, or minor finagling at the edges, they do not understand what Obama has said in plain English - he intends to transform the nation - they cannot fathom from what to what.

History will more likely show that, once again, Republicans sabotaged themselves just as they looked to have an opportunity to make some headway. Let this man and his followers show themselves for who they are, let them run amok and the people will force you to take control. Fight against them and all bad things will be on your head.

So you think this group has the intelligence and will of the Founders?

From what I see you are all missing the point. Challenging results even in very suspicious circumstances is political suicide. You may feel better that you went down fighting, but you will never have another bite at the apple. Think for a second, is it better to ruin yourself and feel superior to those that "let it go", or would it be better for everyone if you held your powder and waited for another chance? Taking the Senate, even with a bunch of "RINO" Republicans, will allow you much more power than whining about stolen elections and loosing the Senate all together. Use some good sense.
What you must remember about this so called scandal is that this was not a matter of something going wrong in the system, this was the plan. The architects of the ACA made it clear that in that system they planned to limit end of life care to save money, what was going on at VA is just implementation of the same framework. Who ever comes in next at VA will be primarily tasked with making the spotlight disappear so they can get back to business as planned.
Absolutely. Also purchasing medical care outside of the system should lead to immediate dismissal.

You could be right that they may not be "natural conservatives", but you are a nasty bigot. Most of my family has roots in Mexico and you sir are quite wrong about the generalizations you make. Many in my family are offended at the user of Mexican-American, they will tell you they are all American. I understand that any large group will have its dysfunctional, but the generalize as you did shows your ignorance.

Lastly, about those jobs that no "American" would do. Is that just a matter of pride, or is it because we know we can live at a relatively high standard of living without ever working? In many cities you would have to make considerably more than minimum wage to come close to the value of the bundle of free services you can extract from those that do work. In addition you have all that free time. In the absence of this larges would "Americans" reconsider certain jobs? No doubt there are deserving folks that need a helping hand, people in this country have never begrudged anyone in genuine need, but today there is much more available that a helping hand. This makes many jobs, jobs "Americans" will not do. BTW - I though in 1986 we make it illegal for employers to hire people that could not show proof that they had a legal right to work in this country. I wonder what happened to that law.

There are legitimate concerns about the skills that are coming with these law breakers. Until recently we had some standards. We sought out the highly motivated and highly skilled, or those with specific skills that met an unfulfilled need. Today we have no idea who is coming here, what skills they have, or where they wind up for that matter. In addition, there are legitimate concerns about health. Are those coming to North America (there really in no USA, is there?) carrying communicable dieses? How would we know? Until there is an outbreak there is no way of telling because no one even checks in. Children with no immunizations are free to attend local schools without any of the restrictions we put on those born in what used to be the United States. Is this prudent?

Most of the debate about "immigration" is not directed at the economic results, as interesting as those might be, but rather at the process. Most persons that are vocal about the current situation (it really can not be call immigration) are concerned about the lack of enforcement of existing law. The debate has been about bringing on a new "comprehensive" set of immigrations laws, when the fact is that the Executive has shown he will not enforce anything he is not in agreement with. In that light what is the point of passing new laws. The current ones are not enforced, and anything the Executive does not care for will not be enforced. So, what to do?
