  2. This will be the #1 criteria of mine IF they don't back down.

    They will get my vote as long as they DON'T back down.
  3. I see Zoe Lofgren voted for the bailout

    But interestingly, she tried to pass a guest worker bill last week

    Why is she trying to pass a guest worker bill, if she thinks theres a depression?

    House Judiciary Com. to Vote Today on Foreign-Worker Bills

    Public Notice for Markup Given in Dead of Night Yesterday

    The House Judiciary Committee will take up two foreign-worker bills today: H.R. 5882, which would add an additional 550,000 permanent green cards; and H.R. 5924, which would add 20,000 additional foreign nurses per year for three years (plus their families). Please contact your U.S. Representative through the Capitol Switchboard (202-224-3121) and ask him/her to do everything possible to stop the passage of these bills. The Committee waited until late last night to give notice for the markup, presumably in an effort to avoid public scrutiny.

    H.R. 5882 – "Recapturing Unused Employer-Sponsored Visas"

The bill’s sponsor, Immigration Subcommittee Chairman Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif), claims it would “recapture unused employer-sponsored visas” from as far back as 1991 and then add them to the current numerical cap of 140,000 employer-sponsored visas that are available each year. Current law, however, clearly states that any employer-sponsored visas not used in one year are allocated to the family-preference categories in the following year. That means that there are no “unused” visas from past years to “recapture
