Well, which is is? 40 or 50 Republicans?

If that’s as “exact” as he can get, then he’s lying.

I can feel the smoldering resentment the republican house members feel toward their base. They want sooooo badly to vote for this thing but we won’t let them.

They hate us.

Get the names so they can be voted out or taken out in the primaries! Conservatives have got to unite, organize, and work to clean the sewer. RINO’s have got to be sent home in 2014 or the country goes down the toilet faster.

Traitors are not wanted, IMO.

Its all trickery and window dressing. My GOP congressman will vote NO and look good back home. He won’t be one of the 40 or 50 but he is a loyal boy since Boehner did a fundraiser for him this week.

Most of the NO’s need replacement because their NO votes are for re-election, not out of conviction.

I read books on the minds of mass killers.. I have followed this anti-white Marxist trash for years. I have no doubt behind doors with his Latin Marxist buddies, he talks with great passion of how wonderful it would be to have the third world scum from Mexico take over America and exterminate any remaining devil whites.

Evil pigs like Gutierrez have the exact same soul and evil heart as Mao, Hitler, Pol Pot and Stalin. They are frustrated because they don't (yet) have the means for genocide.

We had 14 Reps in the Senate vote for the McRubio-Schumer amnesty. I have no doubt that there are 40-50 RINOs in the House who want to please their corporate paymasters by voting for this bill. The GOP wants the increase in guest workers so bad they will even vote for amnesty and political suicide to get it.

The House is writing a similar bill piecemeal. Eric Cantor supports the Dream Act and is writing a House version. Paul Ryan supports amnesty and the senate bill. Boenher says he wants to get an immigration bill on Obama's desk by December. Goodlatte's Judiciary committee has already passed a STEM act to provide green cards to over 50,000 foreign graduates of our schools. These guys are the House GOP leadership.

Schumer has given his approval for the piecemeal approach. The House bills will be put together and sent to conference with the Senate. The result be amnesty.

What Gutierrez said is true. The GOP wants amnesty badly. But I think the bigger thing is that this and what Schumer said is a Dem psywar campaign going on to divide the GOP. A political party executing an actual strategy. How novel.

I find it ironic the surrender party seems unable to do that unless it is pushing amnesty. They can’t even be bothered to push back at this trash. Where the hell is Boehner anyway? He sure has been quiet. We hear from the kenyan, Schumer, this Chicago stooge, etc. And get nothing from the GOP. No fight in them at all. Disgusting.

He may have 50 people to vote on amnesty. But it is not like they will vote immediately for amnesty as soon as they return.

Also some of 50 are delusional when they say they support legal status but not citizenship. They honestly believe something like that will be offered by Democrats. I think one of them who believes this is Blake Farenthold.

Blake Farenthold for instance has a 50% hispanic district. But most the voters in his district are adult whites who turn out to vote.

No, the GOP wants the doubling of the guest worker programs. The senate bill increases the number of guest workers by 1.6 million the first year and 700,000 every year thereafter. It amounts to 1.5 million new temporary guest workers every year while 20 million Americans are underemployed or unemployed. The GOP views amnesty as a bargaining chip.

The GOP is already split on immigration. Boenher, Cantor, Ryan, and McCarthy are amnesty supporters. It is the RINOs against the conservatives.

I find it ironic the surrender party seems unable to do that unless it is pushing amnesty. They can’t even be bothered to push back at this trash. Where the hell is Boehner anyway? He sure has been quiet. We hear from the kenyan, Schumer, this Chicago stooge, etc. And get nothing from the GOP. No fight in them at all. Disgusting.

You don't hear from Boehner because he is working behind the scenes trying to get a bill passed. There really is no urgency to pass an immigration bill now. The push is coming from the corporate paymasters and the Dems. Boehner is trying to throw Obama a life preserver. It wouldn't surprise me that the comprehensive immigration reform is being used as a bargaining chip for the upcoming budget battle, Obamacare, and the pipeline deal. If an amnesty passes, it is game, set, and match for the U S of A.

The Dems will take any amnesty deal they can get from Boehner because their primary objective is to destroy their political opposition. That is all the rampaging marxists like the kenyan care about.

Don’t buy the shinola about Dems wanting no bill to get Hispanics all wee weed up. They have them in the bag already.

Amnesty is all about suppressing the GOP vote. Too bad the stupid party is too greedy for K Street cash to see that.

Because they get the bulk of their campaign contributions from corporations who want cheap, exploitable labor.

Try this on for size:

The McRubio-Schumer amnesty bill is a product of special interests. It will increase legal immigration massively over the next decade to 33 million, more than the previous 40 years combined, and it will double the number of guest workers entering annually. The “Masters of the Universe” who support this bill claim it will be a boon to the economy and jobs. The reality of the past 14 years tells us otherwise, i.e., the economy is in the doldrums and scarce jobs are going to immigrants.

“The overall size of the working-age native-born population increased by 16.4 million from 2000 to 2013, yet the number of natives actually holding a job was 1.3 million lower in 2013 than 2000.

The total number of working-age immigrants (legal and illegal) increased 8.8 million and the number working rose 5.3 million between 2000 and 2013.”

Every ten years we have the equivalent of an amnesty thru our legal immigration policies that bring in 1.2 million legal immigrants a year—two thirds of whom will vote Dem once they get their citizenship.

Republicans are not RINOs they are exactly who they are pro business progressives. Conservatives have been duped by Republicans into thinking they, the Republicans are conservative. Reagan was an anomaly . We need to follow their history and actions. Nothing shows them to be constitutional ist or like and support their conservative base. They need to be killed off as a party for the country to survive.
