Immigration Bill dies

In the wake of the Immigration Bill dying last night in the Senate, the Washington Post’s Dan Balz wrote in today’s paper that the collapse of the bill represents a ‘scathing indictment of the political culture of Washington’.

In his analysis, Balz said the losers in the bill going down its chief authors, Senators Ted Kennedy and John McCain and President Bush. But he also wrote that if voters see that Washington cannot produce a solution to the glaring problem of immigration, they will ask, what hope is there for progress on health care, energy independence, or the financial challenges facing Medicare and Social Security?

University of South Florida Political Science Professor Susan McManus agree with Balz pronouncements. She says Washington has let down the American public (roll tape#1 o.q. “is their priority”)

That’s USF Political Science Professor Susan McManus, discussing the failed immigration bill on Capital Hill.
