Levin on GlobaloneyGeorge's Modest Proposal

Levin is not a happy camper, either--no surprise.

Interesting excerpt:

It is inaccurate to say that Ronald Reagan supported amnesty, and nothing more. Reagan insisted on enforcement, and the 1986 Simpson-Mazzolli bill has very strict provisions, including heavy penalties against law-breaking companies. Neither this administration nor past administrations have seen fit to enforce the law. [That would be..GlobaloneyGeorge I and X42...]

That’s our experience over the last 20 years. So, of course, we conservatives are extremely skeptical of another round of amnesty without enforcement. And that’s what the president is offering. Even worse, that’s what the Hagel-Martinez bill proposes, plus 100 million new aliens to boot. And the Democrats find this too restrictive, which is the only saving grace for Republicans—if any.

Yah. The Corporate/Labor/Government sync-think on the Senate proposal is rather, ah, discouraging if you have to pay the bills, or if your children have to pay the bills.
