Rubio addresses tea party criticism on Senate floor
Daily Caller ^ | 6/26/13 | Matt K. Lewis

Posted on 06/26/2013 11:37:30 AM PDT by jimbo123

“I have received numerous emails and calls from conservatives and tea party activists,” he said at the beginning of his remarks.

“To hear the worry, anxiety, and growing anger in the voices of so many people who helped me get elected to the Senate, who I agree with on virtually every other issue, has been a real trial for me,”

Rubio: “I would vote against anything that grants amnesty because I think it destroys your ability to enforce the existing law and I think it’s unfair to the people who are standing in line and waiting to come in legally. I would vote against anything that has amnesty in it.”

I could forgive Rubo for disagreeing me with and issue, even an issue as important as this.

I cannot forgive Rubio for looking me in the eye and lying.

He is a stinking liar and I will never support a stinking liar. Even if he is running against another stinking lawyer.

All Rubio needs to say is that he no longer supports the bill because his constituents don’t want it.

That would be a good first start.

I would not be surprised if he switches parties. He could be a Democrat senator from Florida for decades. He has no principles and he knows that he is toast as a Republican.

And he assured them he would continue to fight along side them for “real tax reform, lowering the debt, balancing our budget, reducing regulations, rolling back job-killing environmental policies and repealing the disaster of Obamacare,”

And he he fights as effectively for those as he's done on defending the border we'll end up with a tax code twice as long, $30 trillion in debt, the EPA having to approve every person hired and Barack Obama, M.D. as your personal physician.

With his participation in the crafting of this bill you could say he has crossed the rubio-con. It has set him on a path of dwindling support, the question is whether or not the loss of support will cost him the next election.

I met him at several rallies in person. He looked at me and said that he was against amnesty to any illegal because legal immigration was the best defense of making America great once again. Very shameful to lie that way. I now think he has always been for helping the illegals so this wasn’t hard for him to agree with the others in the gang. What has been hard for him, I suspect, is to be receiving the opposition reaction of those who do not trust him any further. I will work against his next campaign since he has not been honest and now is working on the side of law-breakers versus the man/woman who are legal immigrants and the American worker. Didn’t Marco and Jeb Bush say, it was their (illegals) right to be citizens.

Karl Rove's pro-Amnesty advertising campaign appears to be having the opposite effect of what was promised to Rubio and the other GOP-e stooges.

While Rubio and his Eight Senate Gangsters put out political smoke and mirrors to “get a bill passed this year,” nothing they have said will change the basic problem of aliens illegally invading the USA.

llegal aliens invade the USA for Welfare and Wages.

1.) End the Anchor Baby Law.

2.) End the Hospital Emergency Room No Payment Law (EMTALA).

3.) End ANY other Welfare to Aliens.

4.) Fine US employers $1,000 per day per employee who is an alien.

5.) Spend NO money on “securing the border.” It is a bottomless money pit.

6.) Spend money on Chainlink/ Concertina wire desert prisons for the mandatory 6 month imprisonment for repeat offenders who have invaded our Country more than once.

7.) Transfer Border Invasion Enforcement to the US National Guard in each State, and US Coast Guard.

8.) Repeal all State and Federal Laws that prohibit voter officials and Police from requesting proof of US Citizenship for any reason what so ever.

9.) Be as hostile to all illegal alien invaders as we should be to all Federal politicians and Federal Judges who vote for or support another Kennedy-style amnesty bill with no significant Federal enforcement.

But he said he told them that he would go to Washington to “fight to stop what is bad for America,” and that what we have now is, in fact, hurting America. ”I simply wasn’t going to leave it to Democrats alone to try to figure out how to fix it.”

“I got involved because I knew that if conservatives didn’t get involved in shaping this legislation, it would not have any border security reforms our nation desperately needs,” Rubio said.

Ahem.

Dear Mister Rubio.

"Getting involved" is far different from "fixing".

In this case, "getting involved" means not reading the whole bill, not understanding the true post-amnesty implications (all the illegals' relatives moving here too, NO border security ((think Janet N here)), and Republicans and conservatives losing every critical election from this point forward.)

Your "involvement" gives the Dems the cover of bipartisanship all the while they have fine-printed the bill to mean what you choose not to learn or understand.

Any clue as to why the Dems all like it, and want it voted and passed in a stampeded rush?

.

One word for you....

Primary!
