“Republicans entered the campaign’s final weekend yesterday desperately trying to keep control of the Senate, with three or four tossup races likely to determine whether the GOP can cling to power there even as it sees its hold on the House eroding.”

The GOP Senators have sold us out on our job security to lobbyists and law firms. George Allen is a cosponsor of the Skil Bill to allow unlimited H1B visas for almost every type of job in America if the person is educated here, and to vastly increase the number for those not educated here. John McCain almost openly calls Americans bigots for wanting to keep their job security.

The Senate GOP through senators like Mitch McConnell can’t hide their disdain for ordinary Americans who want to keep their jobs. He has a smug smirk on when talking about H1-B just like George Allen.

George Allen got options in high tech firms that use H1B’s to pay lower wages so that the stock price and thus Allen’s options go up. Allen has pushed Skil Bill to increase H1-B’s to support his options as other Senators do for their options or stocks. They can’t hide their smug smirks when they do this and their disdain for the stupidity of their base to vote for them while they betray us for money.

This article represents opinion, hypotheses, speculation and frustration that we don’t have referendums to decide immigration and other hot button issues. All other
disclaimers apply.
