Cherie, I will admit I did not pay as much attention to Politics as I should have in the 70's and 80's, I do not find evidence of Reagan passing this Bill to bust the meat packer Unions. I am not saying this may not have happened, but I do not believe this was the intent.
This Bill finally was passed many years after it 1st version, but was introduced by a Democrat and a Republican
I think reading the Links will refresh everyone's memory :) Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Immigration Reform and Control Act
Firing the Controllers was the best thing anyone ever could have done, any Federal Worker who Strikes and puts the General Public in potential harms way or for that matter puts Millions of American at a huge disadvantage or inconvenience (such as striking garbage workers) should be fired immediately.
Many Bills have been passed before this, How about the one Jimmy Carter Passed in 1980? Refugee Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As long as there are enough Conservatives wanting the cheap labor, you are not going to see any significant action taken against illegal workers.
Fairly low blow, especially as most Conservatives I know and most Conservatives on several Political Forums would 100% dis-agree with that statement. The preponderance of Conservatives I have found want the opposite, they want the Borders Closed and any form of Illegals deported.
If you want to figure out the 'whys' of things getting done and not getting done in Washington, just follow the money trail.
I will agree 100% with that one, Career Politicians are a Cancer to America, both sides...... We need hard Term Limits for any Politician, 12 Years should be more than enough time for someone to Serve ( I use Serve with disgust as I think Most Politicians Serve themselves and not the People who elected them)
As for myself, I am an Independent with a slight leaning to a Conservative and a Libertarian. But I have always voted for the Best People for the Job, Party Lines are BS in my opinion :)
Per you Poll, I will say every single type of Amnesty Bill seems to come up around Election Time and will say they are Politically Motivated. While some of the other choices made sense and partially apply.
I will also say in all my years I have never seen anyone Pander to whatever group will give him an chance for an extra vote than Obama has!
The only Group Obama has not Pandered to that I can remember is the Asian Community, but we still have a few more months, don't we :)
