Ah, for the youngsters on the thread, the SCourt did NOT throw it out.
I’m ashamed but not surprised by Juan McLame. I am totally ashamed of Jeff Flake. He will not be re-elected ... with any luck.
I’ll bet ya it will be the same ones who vote for amnesty.
umm...isn’t this a tactic to force a vote from at-risk dem senators. They vote against the bill (and with their constiutents) they risk the ire and lower donations from the DNC and people like Bloomberg. If they vote for the bill then they’ll get six gazillion phone calls from their constituents. Either way, a floor vote hurts some vulnerable dem senators.
Unless the crack fairy delivered some seriously good stuff this morning, this bill is DOA in the House.
Shame to see this from Arizona. It is the influence of deep blue Tucson and ever more purple Phoenix. Urban culture is slave culture...no regard for liberty, not even a basic understanding of the concept. I wonder what Jeff Flake and John McCain will do after their current and final terms are up?
I swear that picture of Boehner reminds me of Howdy Doody.
I do not like the gamesmanship. Prefer the fight out front.
There may be some valid tactical reasons to do this, but I cannot see it.
Yes! She's been glued to McShame's and Grahamnesty's side since she got there. She pretended to be a TP/conservative...like a few others have, too. She's been promised *big things*, I'm sure.
It must be coincidence.
Are those the senators who had their arms twisted over dinner?
I just called TRAITOR Wicker’s Jackson MS office and his D.C. Office, gave them my voting district county, and told them, that He will NEVER get MY VOTE again!
I emailed him. It will make no difference to him, he knows this is a strongly pro-2A state, and did it anyway. It was somehow worth it to him anyway.
Maybe our Heavenly Father will call him home, today!
The terrifying part is the silence of the lambs in the House.
It has been suggested that Boehner supports this bill, and is willing to, with just a small handful of Republican RINOs, join with the Democrats to pass it.
The fear is that he is that treacherous. A traitor to not just the Republican party, but to the US constitution.
If he does this, then being imprisoned in the US for the rest of his life is not good enough. He must be exiled from the United States and its territories, never again to be allowed to return, in life, or even in death, to our shores. Any honors given him by the government should be taken away, and his name should become synonymous with treason, like Benedict Arnold.
Buh bye, BURR!
Regardless of how this turns out when the dust settles, I WILL support any candidate that runs against every single one of those traitors. I have never voted for or supported a democrat in my entire adult life, but if any of those craven lickspittles are not challenged in the primary election, I will even support a loon democrat.
There are about 4 conservatives that I would support and vote for if they were to run for president, but if they don’t, I WILL EVEN VOTE FOR CLINTON. Yep, I have gone over the wall and off the deep end. ‘What does it matter now’.....the damn republicans are no better than the damn democrats.
Members of the Senate and the Congress do not have the legal authority to vote our God given and constitutionally protected rights down/out.
There is a difficult but proper way to amend the constitution, this isn’t it.
“SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”, you stupid SOBs...
