Shortly after Katrina, Bush lifted the Davis-Bacon Act, a union favorite that provides a prevailing wage for workers on federal contracts. Grover Norquist was one of those pushing for the suspension.
Now, our president has reinstated D-B.
Around the same time that he suspended that Act, Bush also suspended fines for those who hired illegal aliens.
That gave the green light for illegal aliens from other U.S. states as well as from Mexico to swarm in to the Gulf Coast to take rebuilding jobs.
Perhaps those Republicans who say they favor a D-B suspension because they're thinking of the Katrina victims will come out against illegal aliens taking rebuilding jobs from those victims.
And, perhaps those Dems who complained about D-B being suspended will speak out about this as well.
