Quotes

...give Obamacare to illegal immigrants -- but won't protect hard working American citizens who are losing their health care coverage," Vitter said. "the obamaobama administration has been granting deadline extensions, making excuses, and turning a blind eye to falsified documents by illegal immigrants. enough is enough, and they need to provide answers to why they think illegal immigrants should be eligible for obamacare."
...die thanks to EPA phasing out methyl bromide in pesticides without providing a cost-effective or equally efficient alternative," said Vitter. "with such far-reaching impacts, epa should be looking to help american farmers get through the transition without losing their livelihoods."
"I've worked for over a year on bipartisan negotiations in good faith," Vitter said. "in contrast, senator boxer has released my confidential proposal to the press without my consent. that speaks for itself -- it's not a good faith effort to reach consensus but a press stunt/temper tantrum. it's an insult to tom udall and others who've worked hard at this, as well as to frank lautenberg's legacy."
