In this video segment from 2004, Margaret Spellings  described how Bush's original "guest" worker scheme would be open to *everyone*, specifically mentioning nurses, teachers, and high-tech workers. In brief, president Bush wanted to open (most of) the U.S. labor market to the world, including (previously) middle-class occupations.
Oddly enough, the Democrats completely failed to highlight Bush's disastrous, anti- and un-American plans during the 2004 elections. If they had, John Kerry would be president today.
So, why didn't they discuss Bush's horrific scheme?
 At the time, Margaret Spellings was a domestic policy assistant; now she's Secretary of Education. You may have seen her losing on Jeopardy! in November.
