Skip to comments.If the Chamber of Commerce’s $50 million fails Boehner will use his Nuclear Option and pass amnesty
Posted on 12/30/2013 9:05:11 AM PST by Oldpuppymax
Weve heard a lot about Harry Reids Nuclear Option to kill any power Senate Republicans might have thought they had. Now we face the threat of John Boehner using the House version of the Nuclear Option which he will likely sneak into law during a marathon Friday night/Saturday morning session as a last ditch weapon to keep the TEA party from gaining power and saving America from people like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (USCoC).
The (USCoC) is determined to help Barack Obama and his Democrats destroy America. It has pledged to spend and spend some more to defeat TEA party candidates and its mantra is: No fools on our ticket. The fools here are TEA party...

Because bringing in 11 million democrat voters will to work for slave wages is a good thing?
Going from one nightmare, obamaripoff, to another nightmare,amnesty to allow an unknown number of terrorist into the United States thank to bonehead.
Hmm...where are the “if you don’t vote RINO, you’re voting democrat” freepers?
Out lobbying for ethanol and wind farms in Iowa?
The US part of the acronym should be in sneer quotes, like this...."US"CoC.
They are a handful of global companies who do business with global tyrants around the world who give most of the money to the "US"CoC.
I refuse to vote for any politician who supports amnesty. The fact is this bill does nothing to close the borders or prevent overstayers. IT gives a pathway to
citizenship to some and a permanent stay to all. Criminals and cheats.
It is the death of our Republic and the death of the GOP.
So, on a macro scale, the business operators have to decide whether the capital investment for robots equals or exceeds millions of illegals getting $7.65+ per hour. Plus, the other large costs to our treasury and culture as a sovereign state have to be considered.
Each business (micro) will run the numbers to decide if the dollars spent for lobbying congress is equal to or less than purchasing the robots.
Bottom line, government can regulate commerce, but ALL regulations come at a price, and stifle growth. Same with taxes.
We, as a nation are at a crossroad. With the labor force participation rate at an all time low, and GDP the worst ever for a "recovery," we must all choose wisely, or there could be war.
The Republican Party will be dead. Conservatives will stay home in 2014.
They are still around.
Any illegal voter registrations must be challenged BEFORE the election.
How is that to be done?
“Hmm...where are the if you dont vote RINO, youre voting democrat freepers?”
Oh thats easy. Several who went full liberal on myself and others over Romney, calling us ‘purists’ telling us to “GFY” and the like are now avoiding threads like this like the plague. A number of others have regained their ability to reason and realized they made fools of themselves.
But my favorite are the few try-hards remaining. You can see them on the Military benefit threads questioning why vets SHOULDN’T take a cut, and on GOP threads continuing to make excuses for Bhoner, Ryan, McConell and the rest.
And don’t you DARE question their conservatism!!
But fear not. When the election/primaries ramp up, they will be back in full force with a fresh set of talking points, Alynski methodology and grade school tantrums just like last time.
I still haven’t reregistered and I’m not going to if I see yet another romney or mccain coming down the pike. They are trying to align the stars for christie. Ain’t going there.
Glad to see you.
And what a shock...I have already read a few posts over the last couple months with ‘conservatives’ already putting the helium to the “Christie is better than Hillary” trial balloons.
I have to wonder why the lightning has not rained down.
Okay...who still thinks we can take back the Repub party?
People determined to help liberalism spread. Because that’s what a GOP vote results in. History has proven that
G-d is apparently too busy in Antartica warming up the globe to be discharging lightning bolts around here, but G-d won’t stay too busy forever. It’s coming.
God can multitask ;)
Liberal logic: Warming results in freezing.
Liberal logic: Voting for liberal Republicans results in conservative policies.
I’m noticing a pattern here.
The best political option for Boehner is the let the political season play out and use a lame duck session after next fall’s election to push it through.
Amnesty would distract from the Republican Party’s-GOPe strategy of Obamacare as the issue for the 2014 elections.
I see amnesty for illegal immigrants coming right before Christmas 2014 as payback for all that $$$$$$ to support the 2014 campaign.
You are right - it is a nightmare.
more of them would vote for no-balls boner and his ilk than conervatives, at least that’s his thinking.
oh come on, you’ve never seen party leadership change factions or in other terms, change control from conservatives to others, and vice versa? like it will never happen ever again? or it’s now impossible to do it?
boner is scared to death of the tea party. thus the hysterics and reactions of the gop-e. they don’t act this way for people they don’t believe can harm/defeat them. that means tea party has real power and is considered a serious force requiring such a response, cuz if they lose, they know they can take power away from the rinos/gop-e leadership.
ps boner is now going full-blown Crist. /charlie crist, not Christ
The cards have been on the table for some time now. Why are those who are truly for America still fooling around with the Traitorous Republican Party? What has to happen or be said to realize ‘working within the party’ is an exercise in futility?
Third party or stay home election night.
Anybody who promotes amnesty hates this country, is bribed/blackmailed, and/or is delusional.
I'm sorry. I don't understand. Are you saying YOU support cutting veterans' benefits, or that THEY support cutting veterans' benefits ?
No, I am saying that I have seen several posts with supposed conservatives on FR arguing that cutting vet benefits was OK to one degree or another.
I am 100% opposed to ANY cut to military benefits.
Interesting notion...let's take it out for a test drive.
Do you expect at some point in your lifetime a Democrat Party less left than, say, 2000-2008?
During my lifetime, the Repub party has only moved to the right once, in 1980-1988. From 1960 on there was perhaps Goldwater, who was a defense hawk and a social liberal...but during that entire time, there was only Reagan.
Exception noted, the path of the party has been slowly left over that time period. The character of the party has been pretty consistently Michel-like (again, with the exception of Reagan and Gingrich).
Am I wrong? Is there any reason to expect different?
to say it never will happen means you elieve it’s impossible to kick rinos and gop-e’s out of party power.
the libtards aren’t afraid of beating them, but we’re supposed to surrender to them and let them retain the party?
I don't believe it's impossible to kick them out of power, but I believe it's highly unlikely and therefore foolhardy to invest time and effort to do so.
You think of that as "surrendering the party" but I'm no longer in denial...it's not my party, it's theirs.
I now understand it's never been my party...and becomes less so, if possible, over time.
