Why are politicians’ ideas so costly?

According to information received from Lou Dobbs, a noted national economist, there is currently a bill snaking its way through Congress that applies to "amnesty" for illegal aliens.

I have not heard from any other source the mention of this proposed legislation. The promise of "transparency" seems not to be a requirement. Dobbs lists a few of the items in this bill that I feel most Americans would not endorse.

Americans do want fairness and compassion towards the less fortunate, but they do strongly resent political pandering by our leaders.

One of the inclusions to the bill is related to a limited and cursory review of an alien's application prior to qualifying them for Obamacare, and releasing them from any back tax obligations. It also covers provisions for an "earned income tax" credit and amnesty for those exiled. Of course the attorneys' fees for both would be picked up by the taxpayers.

Every morning, it seems we are bombarded by yet another ploy by our leaders to take away our freedoms or our hard-earned money. My overriding question is: Who in Washington keeps coming up with these harebrained ideas, and why must they always seem so liberal and costly?
