Senate Committee Keeps Dreaming the DREAM

There are 4 comments on the story from Jun 30, 2011, titled Senate Committee Keeps Dreaming the DREAM. In it, reports that:

As some people may remember, the lame duck 111th Congress (which was lame well before the election) attempted to pass a last minute version of the DREAM Act before the new Congress took over control in January 2011. Fortunately, the bill fell short of the votes necessary to meet cloture (consent to end debate) in the Senate. Majority Leader Harry Reid, Majority Whip Dick Durbin, and numerous other House and Senate Democrats cried foul and blamed the Republicans for maliciously ruining the future of “immigrant” children through the power of filibuster (a parliamentary procedure not exclusive to Republicans).

I agree, it's takes more than just a few for OUR words to be heard. Obviously our politicians don't give a rats ass that Americans have voted this nightmare act down more than once. It is apparant that the politicians have an agenda and its not for the good of the American people.
