    Amazing how the dems have created laws, legislation and every other web known to man kind, they can fund all the illegals in this country but they can’t help the Americans who are out of work and in most part they are out of work because of the dems. This doesn’t surpries me, they can’t get anything right, everything they touch is so ramptant with corruption that it is literally oozing out of DC now.
