McCain 'Flip-Flops' on the DREAM Act
The Democrats have put out a video documenting the flip-flop(sombrero tip to Todd at MyDD who has been covering this with me):
McCain Today: Told a young questioner he would support the DREAM Act.Still this should be seen as a good development for migrants. It's not something to deride McCain for.
2003 & 2005 & 2007: McCain Co-Sponsored The DREAM Act. McCain co-sponsored versions of the DREAM Act in 2003, 2005, and early 2007. [S 1545, introduced 7/31/03 ; S 2075, introduced 11/21/05 ; S 774, introduced 3/6/07 ]
NOW in 2007: McCain Skipped Vote On DREAM Act But Said He Would Have Voted Against Bill That He Co-Sponsored. "Last week, McCain skipped a Senate vote on immigration legislation called the DREAM Act - Development Relief and Education for Alien Minors. He then said he would have voted against the bill, even though he was a co-sponsor." [Myrtle Beach Sun-News, 11/2/07 ]
