New immigration bill has more waivers and exceptions per page than Obamacare
The Senate’s “Gang of Eight” has released a new version of the immigration bill that contains 999 references to waivers, exemptions and political discretion.
The revised 867-page bill contains multiple changes from the first 844-page version, released April 18, but Democrats have not announced any delay to the committee review of the complex bill that begins next week.
The bill includes roughly 1.14 waivers or exemptions per page. By comparison, the 2,409-page Obamacare law includes 0.78 waivers and exemptions per page. >>>
The bill is extremely complex.
For example, there are 47 mentions of the term “notwithstanding,” each of which creates an exemption to the bill or to existing law. On page 339 of the new bill, a paragraph requires the amnesty be extended to illegals who voluntarily left the United States or were deported. >>>
Another section allows the families of deported illegals, including family members who never visited the United States, to apply for the amnesty.

They complain about the 'tea party' but it really amazes me how strong that 'Potamic Tea' is and how it turns perfectly intelligent folk into blithering idiots.
