Boehner: We have a broken #immigration system..We can't turn a blind eye and think it will go away. It's time for Congress to act. 4:48 PM - 8 Jul 2013
trolling from pro-amnesty forces via Greg Sargent. Although, is it really trolling if its true? I dont doubt for a second that if Boehner allowed an up-or-down vote on the Senate bill, thered be 20-30 Republicans willing to go all-in on amnesty with the entire Democratic caucus. The one and only thing stopping this from passing is John Boehners solemn promise that he wont allow a vote on anything that doesnt already have the support of a majority of the GOP majority.
You trust an old Hill hand like him to stand firm on that promise with the entire GOP establishment, virtually to a man, bleating for the party to pass immigration reform as soon as possible, dont you?
If there is a vote on comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship in the House, it will pass with a bipartisan majority. If all but a handful of the House Democrats vote yes, and at least 20 Republicans from the list below come along, reform can easily clear the 218 necessary to pass the lower chamber. Looking at the list of 99 House Republicans below, its clear that capturing those 20 or so Republican votes is well within reach. Our target list includes several different groups of Republicans, such as:
* Republicans with growing numbers of Latino and Asian constituents.
* Republicans who understand the need for the Party to tackle immigration reform for its own future.
Speaker Boehner is playing games with his link. Try as I have, I can't live link his e-mail form like I did last week. Here it is for you all to cut and paste into your browsers:
Office of the Speaker H-232 The Capitol Washington, DC 20515
It’s not called “caving” in Boehner’s case; it’s called collusion.
In 2014, we absolutely must find a Tea Partier who will run a strong primary campaign in Ohio’s Eighth Congressional District.
Boehner on twitter.
For people with any remaining faith in the GOP let me ask one thing.
Some folks think this is about fixing a broken system.
It is not.
We have laws on the books today, that if enforced would have kept our nation from being over-run. They were not enforced.
What assurance or better yet proof do we have that new laws will be enforced? None. Nothing. Nada!
New laws, mean nothing. We can dismiss them.
The only thing new, is facilitating instant legalization, and resultant amnesty.
That is all this is about, Amnesty.
These days I refer to it as CrAmnesty!
They’re going to cram this amnesty down our throats, no matter what, even if 316 million of us stand up and say no.
Get used to it folks.
CRAMNESTY YOU citizens!
We have a broken immigration enforcement system. We can't turn a blind eye and think that it will fix itself.
We have a broken legislature. We can't turn a blind eye and think it will fix itself.
We have a broken administration. We can't turn a blind eye and think it will go away. It's time for the people to act to let them know it.
We have a broken GOP and a broken House Speaker.
Boehnhead calling a vote would not be caving. Boehnhead doing the right thing about immigtration would constitute “caving” for him.
...and Conservatives gave Barry the election by not voting for Mittens. LOL. Just waiting for the we need to keep voting Pubbie to save the Republic!!.Haa.
Something here about barn doors and escaped horses, I think.
Trusting Boehner is like trusting Obama,
except with Obama YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE CLEARLY.
They deliver the death of America.
One quickly. The other with his phoney tears.
I believe he WOULDN’T DARE try to pass that horrible bill, if only to save his own political skin.
His career would be destroyed, over, finished, done ... if he fooled around with that bill.
Now then, if he has a better approach, he is always free to propose it (this being what he’s paid to do, after all).
Hi. Gather you are new to America.
Willard the RAT Romney, after attacking Gov. Palin
mercilessly in 2008, attacked every conservative
four years later, and then gave up,
BECAUSE ROMNEY DID NOT EVEN WANT TO RUN.
BTW, Willard is not a conservative at all,
since he FIRST imposed RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE
and gay marriage.
That last line was the give-away that this piece was authored by a Democrat (or GOPe) scumbag.
Nothing to see here. It's just a troll.
It isn't at all clear they've succeeded, or will succeed.
The people they're up against are ruthless to the extreme. Remember President Sadat, and Ayman al-Zawahri bellowing abuse and defiance from the defendants' cage at their trial? Those guys are animals. Hell, they raped a female CBS reporter on-air during Cairo primetime. We still owe those fuzzy bastards a MOAB right in the middle of one of their rallies.
I THINK IT MIGHT WORK!
