Durbin immigration bill is a sellout

Durbin immigration bill is a sellout

The so-called "Gang of Eight" is just that — a gang.

We elect 535 members (100 to the U.S. Senate and 435 to the U.S. House) to Congress for a reason, so that a bought-and-paid for gang can't enslave the people.

In Illinois, a non-right-to-work state, those who are not members of a union or government employees have to compete against illegal immigrants for jobs that pay whatever the market will bear in the form of wages.

Illinois U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin voted for Obamacare without having read the bill. Think about that for a minute. The government took over nearly 20 percent of the American economy without having read the bill and without one Republican vote.

When Durbin first ran for the U.S. Senate, his opponent was Al Salvi.

He got the Federal Election Commission's Lois Lerner — yes, the same Lois Lerner of IRS fame — to slander Salvi's character so he could win the Senate seat. It worked.

News reports reveal that, as a U.S. senator, Durbin called on the same Lois Lerner, then with the IRS, to investigate the tea party. I'll be darned if it didn't work again.

This is the guy we have working for us. Make no mistake about it, he will continue selling us out. Recall Durbin now.
