Why does our Senate refuse to do its job? When it comes to protecting our nation they seem to have little enthusiasm for the work required.
This time it's the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). Neither the president nor the Senate are willing to have an honest debate. Today, the Senate Foreign Relationship Committee, chaired by Joe Biden, will hold its first hearing on the treaty. Bush administration officials will all testify in favor, but no opposition will be heard.
Go here to read details on this treaty which is simply another assault on the sovereignty of the United States. Once again, just like when they tried to ramrod the amnesty bill through, we will have to make our opposition known to our senators in no uncertain terms.
