The Catholic Key Blog attacks Senate Democrats, and especially Majority Leader Harry Reid, for the failure of the DREAM Act. They believe that Reid was wrong to attach the bill to a Defense Authorization bill that also included a provision regarding the repeal of "Don't Ask; Don't Tell." Of course, the actual vote last week - which every Senator voted against - would have permitted Senators to vote separately on the two provisions. Every Republican voted against bringing the bill to the floor. And that is Harry Reid's fault?
