Who do these eight morons represent????? Mexico?
The USA has been gang-of-eight-raped.
Rubio better hadn’t say we have to pass it so we can read what is in it.
I understand that a bi-partisan compromise is a very difficult thing. Perhaps they think they even have a strong border-closed-first component — its all for naught. Those we are compromising with are intent on creating more “undocumented democrats” by their every move. If border enforcement can be executive-ordered away, what is our remedy?
We are bargaining from weekness. The terrible position of the Republicans that they “were sent here it get things done.”
Up or down vote like Obamacare, that makes me sick...
The country is in pretty sad shape when gangsters write the laws.
these crazies must be defeated
Mexicans are socialists, and they are bringing their brand of socialism with them as they invade our country. And we have a govenment that not only does NOT oppose them, but actively encourages them!
We are so screwed indeed.
Sonce they are a gang throw them all in prisoin for life!!!
I'm calling a major BS here. Any committee of Republicans and Demnocrats that includes Juan McNutts and Linda Graham is most assuredly NOT bipartisan.
Obama’s Ladies In Waiting.
How dare anyone else think they might have anything worthwhile to contribute !!!!
This is sounding more and more like nobamacare II. Something rammed down our throats without knowing what we’re getting into.
I hope the Republicans learned their lesson. Of course they didn’t but I still hope. If they didn’t and the RATS get 11 million more RAT voters, this country is truly done, save CWII.
Can't be good.
Also, let us remember: this is a report citing the Washington Post. And the Washington Post is NOT going to report anything that will encourage conservatives. Their mission is to demoralize us and to boost their Assclown Hero Zero.
"The legislation that the eight senators are working on is only the start of the process; we expect several committee hearings, a full debate, and an open process for other senators to offer amendments, Conant said. Its premature to speculate about what sort of amendments might be offered, but if another senator offers an amendment that improves the legislation consistent with the principles Senator Rubio has outlined, then I would expect members of the group of eight to support it.
That quote is from Rubio's office.
I also went to Rubio's site at senate.gov, and everything I see there confirms the idea that Rubio is for a fair, open, and transparent process.
I think Rubio is the best public face this legislative effort has, and if HE does not go on board with it, then Schumer and McIgnorant and the rest of the clowns know it is dead.
Gang of Eight
“This gang of” garbage has got to stop.
If Graham and McCain are involved...
...and they are not supporting transparency...
...and they are against any amendments to their "perfect" bill...
...then you can bet that the US of A is going to get screwed.
A "delicately crafted" 1500 page immigration bill, my ass.
Bad day to a Marco Rubio Cheerleader
He has always been for Amnesty....before he even got to US Senate
The gang of eight are
Pubs: Rubio, Flake, McCain, Graham
Dems: Durbin, Menedez, Schumer, Bennet
Whatever one thinks about Rubio overall he is liberal on immigration. Therefore the “gang of eight” consists of eight liberals without any conservatives represented
We are screwed. The second I read that the bill could be 1500 pages...can anyone say Obamacare, Stimulus, etc.? We are now finding out ALL the secrets in Obama Care. As for the Stimulus Bill, who knew it had a complete infrastructure to change the Education System tucked in that little cutie?
One can only imagine what they will stick in this wonderfully crafted POS! I also would like to be charitable and say I think Rubio is a nice young man, however, charity begins at home.
