I’m puzzled over Rick Murray’s lengthy rationalization of the Gang of Eight’s weenie immigrations bill (“Introducing comprehensive immigration reform took courage,” AFN, June 23). It made no sense to me that an American businessman would take such a stance.

Then on June 24, the reason was exposed. On that day the CEO of the corporation that owns fast-food outlets Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s let the cat out of the bag... Obamacare only applies to citizens. Employing green card holders could save employers as much as $5,000 per year.

Elections have consequences. Boy, do they ever!

P.S., I almost forgot: I hope you liberals enjoy the increase in your Salt River Project (SRP) bill when Obama forces SRP to close its coal-fired plants (never mind that the average temperature has been flat for over 15 years).
