Skip to comments.Are Rubio, Graham, Boehner & McConnell Dumb Enough to Believe CBO's Scoring of the Immigration Bill?

And dumb enough to support this immigration bill given the Senate's 54-43 rejection of the Cornyn plan for a border security 'trigger'?
The CBO dynamically "scored" (with numbers supplied to it by Dems) the immigration bill (S. 744) and found that it - low & behold - will DECREASE federal deficits over the next 20 years.
Hmmm. How are those CBO-scored ObamaCare numbers working out for ya? They were only $2 TRILLION DOLLARS off when predicting the cost of ObamaCare. But no way they could botch this....right?
I wonder what the odds are of these 4 getting primaried, given that there aren't enough votes for cloture in the Senate IF Republicans hold firm (especially so since the Senate voted 54-43 to REJECT the Cornyn plan for a border security trigger) and the House can vote a resounding NO?
BTW, I wonder what the odds are of Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) getting primaried or defeaded by a Repub in November 2014, as he is already weak from supporting ObamaCare, and hammered by current ads. If he votes for this immigration bill, he will hit new heights of unpopularity in Arkansas.
What say you?
Or think we are!
They don’t believe it, because they had CBO fabricate it to look the way they wanted it
Of course they’re not dumb enough to believe it. They’re in on the fraud and are hoping that WE are dumb enough to believe it.
CBO said Obamacare would save us money. They are either shills or dopes or, quite possibly, both.
The real questions is: “Will they believe the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ that accompany passage of this bill?”
The Dems are trying their best to derail this bill so they can blame the GOP and the GOP are trying their best to pass it, LOL
If it wasn’t for his daddy, Mark couldn’t get a job at a laundromat, he is THAT stupid.
Mark Pryor: I stand by my vote for ObamaCare

“Never mind what I said last week about his reelection bid turning into a referendum on gun control. This is apt to be a bigger ball-and-chain on his ankle than Mike Bloombergs ads.”

This week, Senate Conservatives Fund released a new ad focusing on Pryors vote for Obamacare.
1.Mark Pryor cast the deciding vote for Obamacare.
2.Despite the wishes of his constituents, Pryor still supports Obamacare and wont vote to repeal it.
This upset Senator Pryor, who tried to claim his vote was not the deciding vote for Obamacare. So whos right? Lets take a look:
In the end, Obamacare could have been stopped by a single U.S. Senator.
Had Mark Pryor voted the wishes of his constituents, the bill would have failed. Its as simple as that.
Had Mark Pryor stood up to Barack Obama and Harry Reid, the bill would have failed. Again, its as simple as that.
For Pryor to claim his vote was just another vote that didnt have a deciding outcome on the passage of Obamacare is pure baloney.
When you vote with President Barack Obama 95% of the time, but represent a state where Barack Obama only received 37% of the vote, you can expect people to be upset with your voting record.
Republicans shouldnt let him forget it in 2014.
Hmmmm . . . yes?
It’s not about being dumb, but deliberate participation in deceiving the constituents.
The most important thing to remember about CBO cost analysis is the CBO is constrained by the assumptions included in request for scoring.
I can't speak for the other three, but here in South Carolina we are working hard to watch Linda die in the primary.
The CBO is as useless as a room full of retarded chimpanzees.
Do flys like crap? Yep.
” Of course theyre not dumb enough to believe it. Theyre in on the fraud and are hoping that WE are dumb enough to believe it.”
Oh, I wouldn't say they're "dumb". In fact, they're smart enough to run with the numbers they were hoping for.
Probably not. With these close votes it's like they sit in a hidden room somewhere and decide how to get these things to pass without it costing them the next election. If the ptb thought Pryor would lose the next election because of the vote, someone else would've been chosen to vote for it.
By all means Mark Pryor should be primaried by a real conservative. The only way to stop the US Senate from destroying the US is to have Republican Senators who will not ignore the will of the people when they get enveolped in the DC fog.
yes, dumber then a box of nails.
Yes, they are THAT stupid.
McCain, Graham, Rubio and whoever else votes YES is selling out the citizens of the US.
McConnel and Corker are so stupid they could be held up via carrier pigeon!
The vast majority of the costs to support criminal trespassers will fall on State taxpayers so the gang of 8 do not have to worry about the impact on the federal deficit.
I can only imagine what the tax implications in NYS will be given the state’s Cadillac give away programs.
It isn’t that they believe it or don’t believe it. They all just want this issue to go away.
They are terrified that they will get beaten over the head with it in 2014. They are also being told by their advisors that a whole lot of these illegals will vote republican. Of course we all know they won’t but who listens to us?
