KIDS ON SENATE TOUR, SEE HOW OUR GOVERNMENT WORKS…..really.

Cross posted from StikNstein…has no mercy

Welcome to Washington kids……. I’m sure you are all excited, but let’s stay in line.
Today we will tour the Senate to see how our Senators pass legislation important to all Americans, but especially to you children. You are our future, and it is our mission to create a different kind of government …….One you can be proud of.

OK…..Ready?…..Let’s go…….

This is our Senate building….Where the Democrats have a new majority and are changing the way our Government works. In the past the party in charge didn’t always do what was best for Americans. Our pledge is that we’re going to change all that!

Now we are in the NEW Senate Chamber. This is where all the Senators have a desk. The gallery we are standing in, is where Americans can come watch us work.

We Democrats believe that the people should know what their government is doing. We call this Transparency. Can you say Transparency? It means we pledge to work out in the open. See how open it is here?
I don’t see anyone at the moment…….. but if we are lucky we might see a senator giving a speech, presenting a chart, waving some papers, or hard at work participating in an important photo op……..

Why is nobody here?

Well Susie, Senators are very busy people……..we might be on vacation, or fund raising, or on a junket…… Why……we might even be working on legislation for all of you.

Can we see that?…..Huh….Can we?…..Pleeeease!!!

Kennedy, McCain keep immigration bill closeted
Via the Houston Chronicle

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s march to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws is starting in somewhat rocky fashion, with Sen. John Cornyn of Texas and other leading Republicans complaining they’ve been shut out of the bill-writing process.
Even the committee’s top Republican, Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, complained he’d been frozen out of the talks on a bill co-sponsored by one of his GOP colleagues, Arizona Sen. John McCain.

Kennedy and McCain, renewing the partnership they began in the last Congress, have had their aides closeted for weeks crafting legislation with the input of a select few, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, other business interests and immigrant advocates.

Appearing before the Judiciary Committee, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez urged Congress to act swiftly on Bush’s call for a comprehensive immigration bill and stressed his commitment to make it happen.
Chertoff and Gutierrez steered away from endorsing specific policy prescriptions but urged passage of a law that can be easily put into practice.
“We have to strive for simplicity so we can execute it effectively,” Gutierrez said, blaming the 1986 amnesty law’s failure in part on mandates that proved too difficult to carry out.
