McConnell praised the work of Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and other members of the Gang of Eight, who crafted the comprehensive legislation during months of private negotiations.

BTW, is McConnel being primaried? I would like to contribute to his opponent.
I don’t know if he’s being primaried, but hell’s bells I now wish Bachmann would move to KY and primary his sorry a##
boner wil go limp and bring it up fo a vote. he’s in the same boat as mcconnelland mccain and rubio. the ussa gop-elite
Pure satire I.m sure.
FU too, McConnell.
He’s expecting to be rescued by House Republicans.
And the ole DC show marches on. The Senate will pass their bill, the house will respond with passing a bill that is tougher on border security, rejects voting rights, rejects amnesty etc., etc. and Boner will claim the conservative high ground. Then, of course, the other shoe drops when the bill hits conference and Boner bones us by naming pro-amnesty RINO’s to the conference who will make sure the final bill really is the Senate bill.
The cherry on top, Obama gets to sign it and take credit for being the mostest bi-partisanest guy ever!! Of course, Boner will proudly stand next to Obama at the signing ceremony while Obama makes a speech chastising the Republicans for having blocked the bill and being at fault for it taking so long to pass in the first place. But hey, Boner is accustomed to being a teary eyed prop by now so this will just be another day in DC for this guy.
Traitors all! Treat them as such.
I have not yet read the current bill, but I have read previous versions, and more than 90% of each draft I’ve seen would be harmful to our country. McConnell should kill the bill without ever bringing it up.
McConnell, the man with the backbone of a chocolate eclair.
The good people of Tennessee should be ashamed of themselves for electing this fraud again and again. I KNOW he doesn’t represent the way most of them think.
People believe that this will be the coup de grâce to our economic demise? Not to mention, Democrat Party control of a ruined nation and total despotism. I think the fall would be fast.
And he wonders why he’s having difficulties with his reelection campaign?
He doesn't, and we did not elect him. Kentucky did.
That doesn't let us off the hook for Alexander and Corker though.
Kentucky not Tennessee.
Nonsense. He wants it to pass.
Or even Kentucky.
It has nothing to do with a lack of backbone. He favors the bill.
The least he could have done would be to offer two Amendents to abolish the Anchor Baby and Hospital Emergency Room Welfare Laws.
With those two sorry Welfare Laws in place the invasion of illegal aliens from Mexico will only increase.
