Why so many Republicans had been willing to sell out America

The Inside Story Of How The Senate Immigration Bill Died

[W]hy [sic] so many Republicans had been supporting such an incredibly unpopular bill:

First off, there was what he referred to as the "Rovian School of thought," which says that passing this bill would capture the Hispanic vote for the GOP for decades to come.

Next up, there's the "Chamber of Commerce" vote. He says these Republicans were heavily influenced by business groups that want cheap labor no matter what the cost is for the rest of the country.

Then there was the last group, the smallest group in his opinion, who were willing to sign onto a terrible bill just so they could say they were part of a big reform that had bipartisan support.

Anyone who tries to piss on the value of American citizenship by supporting this bill, Republican or Democrat, needs to seriously re-examine what this country means to them.

(Hey, if the POTUS can question whether I truly want what's best for this country, I can redirect the question, too.)
