Senators taking part in Friday's announcement were: McCain, Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Tom Udall (D-N.M.)

I agree. Give the UN an inch and they will take a mile. Let the UN get its toe in the door and they will swing it wide open.
You get the picture.
