Weve already been out there protesting, not just me all the tea parties around Florida have already done that, Lucas said. Now, there is a move to look for a candidate to primary him out.
Conservatives are obviously furious, Phillips said. Marco Rubio can forget about his presidential aspirations. Hes not going to be able to hold his Senate seat. And if the House even thinks about passing this, theyre going to be in the minority in 2014.
House Republicans and activists are pressing Speaker John Boehner to invoke the Hastert rule on any immigration legislation, which means he wont bring the bill to the floor unless it is supported by the majority of Republicans.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who organized a six-hour press conference in opposition to the Gang of Eight bill last week, told POLITICO that conservatives who support a pathway to citizenship lose the right to be called conservatives.
They should be worried about labeling themselves as conservatives if they are for sacrificing the rule of law for politically pragmatic reasons, which are by the way, erroneous, King said. Theyre calling themselves conservatives, but I dont know if their constituents are going to call them and thank them for being conservatives.
There is going to be a fallout here for anybody who votes for this bill, and I assume that folks are really going to hear it from their constituents, Hoskins said. People talk about it like its a political winner, but it costs people their election.
And it might not be just limited to the 2014 election.
Lucas of the Martin County 9/12 Committee said the immigration bill has her done with the Republican Party although she was open to a Rand Paul candidacy for president; he voted against the bill.

Bet Marco becomes a democrat like Charlie
A bunch of idiots are going to go through the EXACT same pattern with Paul as they did with Rubio.
Paul’s an amnestybot, which is what I said about Rubio from the start.
They think they can survive by joining the enemy. They can not. They will fight and maybe survive or capitulate and certainly die like the federalists and the whigs. Not a threat, just a reality.
Bring on Allen West!
once again pollutico attempting to belittle the “tea party” rather than Tea Party...
notice when it comes to the smelly hippies of the occupy movement its all caps:
The real risk is or was Rand Paul’s amnesty lite.
Having such a terrible bill helps reduce that risk. If Rand Paul’s amnesty lite is 1/10th as bad as s744 it will be easier for Stockman, King, Grassley, Lee, Cruz and Vitter to tear it apart.
Vitter was the first to attack Rubio at the start of the year. I was hoping that Rubio’s bigoted interns would say something anti-white or anti-southern against him. Which would be ironic since Vitter is a Rhodes Scholar and Rubio went to community college.
Many of those Obamacare supporters/posters from Politico are brain dead. They are arguing for more Obamacare control while advocating they are not going to have to pay more for the medical care because the Affordable Care act makes medicines/surgeries cheaper. They like that the companies will pay more though, they don’t get it, those same companies will be getting rid of workers. They don’t get it that the control of their personal physician is no longer independent from a government panel to make medical decisions that the patient should only could/have the right to make. They are hating on the Tea Party while getting rolled by Obama’s overreach as they will not have the freedom/choices of medical care. Some people, never will listen until they either lose a job or get a huge bill in the mail.
