Finally the senate did what it should have done, after the American people showed their anger, shutting down the Senate’s phone lines with so many calls against this bill, that it almost shut everything down and the Senate HAD to do what was right…..and that was to kill the Immigration Reform Bill. I think that is great. But that leaves us with the original problem.
The Senators think the laws that exist stink. And for what they are doing, yes they do, but the reason that the existing laws stink is because they are not being enforced!
Sean Hannity yesterday, Senator George Voinovich was being interviewed and had the audacity to tell Sean that he wouldn’t let himself be intimidated because he has been in the business for 40+ years and he wasn’t about to let people tell him what to do. Here is some of what he said:

Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio
WASHINGTON – Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, misunderstood the results of a vote on an amendment to the “comprehensive immigration reform” bill being debated in the upper house today.
He also is apparently unfamiliar with efforts to re-impose the Fairness Doctrine on broadcasters operating on the public airwaves.
But it was nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Sean Hannity’s persistent grilling about the senator’s intentions on key cloture votes leading to a showdown on what is characterized as an “amnesty” bill that caused Voinovich to melt down before millions of listeners today.
The normally low-profile Republican hung up on the No. 2 talk host in the country.
The key sticking point in the conversation was Hannity’s question as to whether the senator had done a cost analysis on the bill. The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think-tank, estimates the bill would cost the American taxpayers $2.5 trillion.
I actually couldn’t believe what I heard on the show, when he (Voinovich) said that he wouldn’t allow himself to be intimidated by people telling him that he either voted a certain way or they would make sure that he wasn’t re-elected. HE WASN’T GOING TO ALLOW THAT? Mr. Voinovich, don’t you remember that you are supposed to be there to represent the people? Can’t you remember that the three biggest words in the Constitution are WE THE PEOPLE!
