A case could be made either way. A vote would flush out the rinos.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. (multiple votes using multiple internetz devices are allowed!) And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)

What. a load. of Bull.

The submit button is in shadow & won’t work. And get this:
44,805 people have voted in this poll- 67% Yes, 33% No
And it said I voted no. I’ve never seen a submit like *that* before.

We live in a banana republic.

I say the sooner the better so we can see who the RINOs are before the primaries. The Senate, too.

Congress should pass immigration reform that would try to get rid of illegal aliens. They should triple the fines and prison terms for employers, who hire illegal aliens. When illegals can’t get jobs, more of them will leave the U.S. If any money is collected, from those fines, it should be used to build a brick wall, along the Mexican border.

I support “No”.

Bringing this to a vote can not do any good. It would only allow treasonous Democrats and RINOs more opportunities to push through amnesty.

True immigration reform would eliminate amnesty, expel all illegal aliens, secure our borders, and restore legitimate immigration of those who would benefit our country.

None of this is even on the table with Bonehead in charge.

I don’t think a vote would necessarily be a bad thing…..if it’s an awful bill, it would go down in flames.

…I think….

Unfortunately that’s NOT the case. Almost all the DemocRATS would vote for it along with a sufficient number of RINOs to enable it to pass.

Boehner must not allow it to come to a vote as long as a majority of REPUBLICANS don’t want it to come to a vote. Period!

You have to understand how this works. Once they get a bill passed, they can gut it and put in anything they want. It's just a shell to contain all their wet dreams.

If they vote on a bill, it will be passed and repurposed, just like they did with Ubamacare.

Voted - this needs some serious freeping - we’re losing badly - like 2 to 1.

Democrats had both houses when Obama Care passed….I don’t think that’s a valid analogy.

Boehner and McConnel preside over the GOP-wing of the Democrat party.

They consider the TEA party to be their enemy. They consider the Democrats to be their colleagues.

I couldn’t get the damn thing to work either. Big surprise.

The Compost should have worded the question the way they really meant it. “Should Boner allow any Republicans to vote against amnesty?”

" (Should Boehner bring immigration reform to a vote in the House?)"

NO- he should schedule an early vote for the next Speaker of the House, to take effect immediately.

No. And if he does, he’ll lose the majority of his own party — although the so-called “leadership” will all vote for it.

That is disgusting but we have to consider that this poll is in the Washington Post which has always been an organ for the ruling elites.
