I know he had a job to do and a response to give, however, all he had to do was say “BS”, and his job would have been done.
Teh third annual Tea Party response. Excellent job, Senator.
We are the party that embraces hard work and ingenuity, therefore we must be the party that embraces the immigrant who wants to come to America for a better future. We must be the party who sees immigrants as assets, not liabilities. We must be the party that says, If you want to work, if you want to become an American, we welcome you.
The path we are on is not sustainable, but few in Congress or in this Administration seem to recognize that their actions are endangering the prosperity of this great nation.
Both parties have been guilty of spending too much, of protecting their sacred cows, of backroom deals in which everyone up here wins, but every taxpayer loses. It is time for a new bipartisan consensus. It is time Democrats admit that not every dollar spent on domestic programs is sacred. And it is time Republicans realize that military spending is not immune to waste and fraud.
Not only should the sequester stand, many pundits say the sequester really needs to be at least $4 trillion to avoid another downgrade of Americas credit rating. Both parties will have to agree to cut, or we will never fix our fiscal mess.
Washington acts in a way that your family never could they spend money they do not have, they borrow from future generations, and then they blame each other for never fixing the problem.
If Congress refuses to obey its own rules, if Congress refuses to pass a budget, if Congress refuses to read the bills, then I say: Sweep the place clean. Limit their terms and send them home.
Here is a version that does not cut out the first few words:
Is it REALLY too much to ask for one of these fools to differentiate between legal, which we welcome and illegal (which Democrats welcome) immigration? Really? Is it?
The Treason Lobby intentionally blurs the line between legal immigration and foreign nationals who invite themselves here in violation of the law.
It’s a bi-partisan policy of Evil Stupidity.
Yup. But plenty on the right refuse to accept that and insist on further emboldening the party to keep doing it.
And simultaneously claim how conservative they are.
Yeah Obama is a con artist and everything he says is BS and lies.
Jeff Sessions Said the ICE Director John Morton Should Leave because of misconduct.
Sessions also warned Washington against Rush To Amnesty
We are a Country that is on the verge of shooting each other dead (or getting Dis-armed) and or worse by a tyrant and this EFFEMINATE RESPONSE (however accurate his facts are) is OUR response? And it is Applauded?
You folks that think that rebuttal was an effective rebuttal... you best have your own provisions. Life is about to become a much different battle and I do not think that many of you are prepared to survive it.
Basically we are screwed
Thank God someone spoke truth to morons. But in light of the musical chair style of politics the GOP has adopted, I seriously question if he isn’t put out there as cover. Is any other Pubbie backing him on this?
(Words and in a most effeminate let’s get along manner)
No Action... and I’m sure Bohner is crying somewhere... about what? Who knows, a tabloid will pay him millions to find out.
They all play this game with us ... I’m out
I only hope the remaining base of the GOP will see it too. But they seem set on captaining the ship right up de’Nile river.
GOP is doing the exact opposite of what it should be doing to attract voters and win elections and oppose Obama. Very few left who get it. The leadership is stuck on stupid.
Thanks for the post. Fantastic speech... to bad only the choir will hear the preaching. Only 167 views on YT, darn.
Thank God someone spoke the truth. God Bless Rand Paul.
He should be our next President.
I think the Tea-Party needs to form it’s own Party, the GOP is done.
The GOP is a joke.
