Lou Dobbs Rails Against Congress [Illegal Alien Shamnesty Bill Alert]
NewsMax ^ | Aug, 4, 2006 | Not Cited
In a shotgun blast scattering buckshot all over the place, CNN's Lou Dobbs heaped scorn on both Congressional Republicans and their Democratic colleagues as "do-nothings" taking a five-week recess from serving the United States of America.
Dobbs devoted his commentary on Wednesday's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" to a blistering attack on both political parties for their collective failure to protect the interests of America's working men and women.
Charging that Republicans in Congress have little to brag about when they go home on recess to face their constituents, neither do the Democrats, Dobbs said, who also have a lot of explaining to do.
"Once the party of the New Deal, Fair Deal and Great Society, the party of working men and women, the Democrats are now buried as deeply in the pockets of their corporate masters as are the Republicans," Dobbs fumed.
Democrats, he explained, have "played a major role in helping to pass legislation that is grossly injurious to middle-class Americans and their families."
Dobbs cited instances where Democrats joined hands with Republicans in pushing through legislation he insisted was harmful to working class Americans:
The GOP controlled Congress with Democratic assistance "cut $13 billion in college-student aid, passed numerous free-trade agreements that threaten good-paying jobs and approved an unconscionable bankruptcy law written by credit-card companies that is nothing less than a federal government heel in the neck of American families bankrupted by catastrophic illness and crushing medical bills."(continued, click FRIDAY below and scroll down for rest of article or if sent straight here just scroll down)
