Oops, he does it again!

According to the GOP's "Policy News":

President Obama promised in his address to Congress that, "There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false-the reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally." However, the facts indicate that actions by Democrats in Congress do not comport with the President's own pledge:

  • While Republicans offered common-sense amendments at both the Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce Committees requiring applicants for taxpayer-subsidized benefits to verify their citizenship and identity-thus allowing the bill to meet President Obama's pledge-Democrats rejected these proposals on a party-line 26-15 vote at Ways and Means, and a 29-28 vote at Energy and Commerce.
Is this another Obama lie or is President Obama just clueless about the Democratic legislation he is promoting?
