According to a CBS report on the meeting between Gang of Eight senators John McCain (R-Arizona) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and President Obama on Tuesday, Sen. Schumer was quotes as saying “He doesn’t want to drag this out because that’s the way bills get killed,” Schumer said.
Why the haste? Because president Obama knows that the more time that the American public has to learn about the loopholes in the amnesty bill the greater will be the opposition to its adoption. Apparently, that also means that he thinks that Congress might be swayed by the electorate that put them in office. There is a novel concept – democracy might actually work and allow the majority to outweigh all of the special interests that have a stake in the adoption of the amnesty proposal.
