64 to 35 for cloture. What we have here, to borrow a line from the movie Cool Hand Luke, is a failure to communicate. The people didn’t want amnesty for illegal aliens but Senators who are now “ex-Senators walking” voted for it and will now bear the full weight for their disregard of the American people.

A Rasmussen Reportsnational telephone survey found that 51% would like their legislators to “take smaller steps towards reform” while 16% believe they should wait until next year. That’s 67% of the electorate saying no on S.B. 1348. Yet 24 Republicans joined 39 Democrats and independent Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut, to defy the will of the people

Now that Senators have moved this “No Illegal Alien Left Behind” bill forward, it is up to the American people to leave behind each one that put this legislation that will do more damage to the American middle class than hurricanes Rita and Katrina combined. The impact of 12 to 20 million amnesty-Americans and their family members will make middle class wages and neighborhoods near you look like the still damaged sections of New Orleans.

The following are Senators that recently changed their position on S.B. 1348 are Sens. Kit Bond, R-Mo., Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., Norm Coleman, R-Minn., Pete Domenici, R-N.M., John Ensign, R-Nev., and Jim Webb, D-Va., these Senators should hold a special place in the hearts and minds of the American people.

And as for whether this bill is Amnesty the President thinks it is. He said so himself.
