THE BLITHE SPIRIT:

Why This Senator Accuses Paul Ryan of 'Blithely Dismissing' Americans on Immigration (Philip Wegmann, December 18, 2015, Daily Signal)

After the House passed the massive spending bill Friday, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., attacked Ryan by name over permitting an expansion of the H-2B visa program for low-skilled "guest workers."

"Blithely dismissing the just concerns of the great majority of American voters, and especially Republican voters, is not a wise course for the Republican speaker," Sessions said in a prepared statement.

In question are H-2B visas designed to allow low-skilled foreign workers to take temporary blue-collar jobs in the United States.  A provision in the 2,009-page spending bill increases the program's eligibility cap from 66,000 workers to 264,000.

At least he recognizes that he's been dismissed.
