The stolen vote

According to CNS News:
House Republicans have launched an investigation into what they're calling
the "stolen illegal immigration vote." They say House Democrats cheated on Aug.
2, during a vote on a Republican proposal to bar taxpayer-funded benefits for
illegal immigrants. According to House Republican Leader John Boehner, the GOP
proposal passed 215-213 on the night of Aug. 2. But Democratic leaders promptly
reopened the vote and allowed several Democrats to change their minds. When
Democratic leaders ordered the vote closed for a second time, the Republican
motion was defeated -- and taxpayer-funded benefits for illegal immigrants were
restored, Boehner said.

It sounds cruel to cut off money to illegal immigrants but every dime we spend on someone here illegally, is money we do not have to spend on other people in poverty--people who live here legally.

I gotta believe that this isn't going to go anywhere. It's just going to turn out to be a waste of money because the people in charge aren't going to submit to whatever is found.
