This time on the immigration front, and it brings to mind the dark-of-night ram-through of Obamacare. And that’s working out well, isn’t it?
Recall that Senator Marco Rubio (R, FL) wrote to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D, VT) about upcoming immigration reform legislation and urging a “make haste slowly” process with open hearings and an opportunity for all Senators, and through them all Americans, to see and debate the matter.
Leahy wrote back saying he’d give hearings some thought, and maybe hold one. After all,
The Judiciary Committee is capable of swift and thorough action.
I…remain mindful of the urgent need for us to actually get to the work of debating and considering amendments without unnecessary delay….
Yeah. Just like Obamacare. No need for petty Republican argument. We already know the answer.

Why are Progressives always so afraid of open debate?
