By Susan Duclos

Former New York lieutenant governor Betsy McCaughey has read through the "Gang of 8 amnesty bill aka Immigration reform and find six major flaws as well no representation for "average tax-paying citizens."

The Daily Caller reports on their interview with  McCaughey:

“There are many interest groups involved in this bill,” she said.

“In fact, many, many, many — except one. I didn’t find anything for Joe Q. in this bill. I didn’t find anything for the average tax-paying citizen in this bill.”

“Somebody forgot to tell him about the meeting, so he or she is not represented in this bill,” she added.

She then lists the major flaws with the bill:

• The bill imperils national security by weakening rules for asylum seeker

• Outsources government jobs to community organizers, like happened in Obamacare

• Doubles the numbers of legal immigrants with green cards

• Contradicts Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio’s ads that promise new citizens will be self-supporting

• Costs too much

• Impedes border agents from doing their basic enforcement job.
