Rand Paul: If Boehner Passes Amnesty, Will Be 'Final Thing He Does as Speaker'
breitbart.com/Big-Government ^ | 8-30-2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 08/30/2013 7:55:12 PM PDT by servo1969

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said on Laura Ingraham’s radio program that House Speaker John Boehner’s speakership is in jeopardy if any form of amnesty, such as the Senate's immigration reform bill, becomes law.

“I’m worried about conference,” Paul said Friday, according to Roll Call. “The only way to avoid a problem with conference is for the speaker of the House to say we are not going to conference, and we will not allow a vote on anything coming out of conference that resembles the Senate bill, and if there were a much more limited bill that emphasizes border security first, that we would do that.”

"Conference" refers to a legislative process wherein after the House passes its own immigration bill, it will enter negotiations with Senate leaders and even the White House to reconcile the differences between the two chambers' bills. Conservative lawmakers fear that in conference, Boehner would allow Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to include a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants in the final law submitted to President Barack Obama.

Paul asserted that if Boehner passes anything like the Senate bill, conservatives in the House will more than likely drive him out of office.

It will be the last thing Boehner HAS to do. He'll finally be in the inner circle. All his years of @sskissing will have been worth it. He'll be set for life.

Or maybe the Dems will just toss him in the trash like a used condom.

One of the two.

He’s a demagogue.

Rand Paul’s immigration speech

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

[but he’s not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]

The day after that passed the Obama admin would declare the border “more secure than ever”

I’m all for getting Waldo Boehner out. But then we get Cantor.
When Bonehead goes, and he will. The House must bypass Cantor
and McCarthy.

He's a useful demagogue if he knocks Boehner off as speaker. Besides, views do evolve. (Some in the wrong direction).

Exactly!

Let's not get rid of one jackass only to get another, and have it take years to get rid of that person.

Well, he’s opposed to the POS immigration bill the Senate passed. And as long as he’s opposed to that POS, I’m with Rand.

Do you support the immigration bill passed by the Senate? If not, then what is your agenda in denigrating an opponent to that particular bill?

Do you support the immigration bill passed by the Senate?”

I have been looking on-line to find a copy of the entire bill passed by them and can’t seem to find. Any idea about the correct link?

“He’s a demagogue.”

And what about you? Are you pro-boehner, pro-obama or pro-amnesty?

He voted against the senate bill that he’s criticizing, so I think you need to look up the definition of demagoguery in the dictionary. You’ll find that it applies more to you than to him.

Why?

He has his own Amnesty Plan.

That's like saying you'd rather be shot with a pistol vs. a Shotgun because you'll die more slowly.

Well, we already know that Rand Paul is pro-amnesty.

What was that you were saying again?

He does not care. IF Amnesty is passed there is no going back and he walks away
untarnished financially while the rest of us try to survive the collapse. And we
end up with what they want, one party Rule with Socialists in charge..

FIRE BOEHNER, NOW! Before it's to late or America dies.

He doesn't have his own plan. It's a different version with the same damn result.
It's the same response the Repubs always have with Democrat motives "We can do worse better".

I just don’t get it. Seriously.

It’s like Romney thinking replacing an non-Constitutional Health Care plan known as Obamacare, with a non-Constitutional Health Care plan known as Romneycare, was going to be okay with Conservatives.

Rand has the same problem. You legalize 20-35 million people over time anyway, with his plan.

We don’t want them to become legal residents here. They need to be repatriated back to their home country.

They do not belong here. It’s not all that complex. The answer for Rand’s plan as well as any other plan is..., NO!

No! No! No! No! No!

I’m with you. We don’t want them, nor do we need them. They do not belong there.

If it comes to paying more for lettuce or strawberries or having to cut our own grass, I’d gladly do that if it meant my area schools wouldn’t be inundated with illiterate illegal children, my area hospital emergency rooms mobbed by illegals using it as a GP, my area jails overcrowded with illegal DUIs, rapists, thieves, etc.

I found Steve King’s opening statement in 2010 on the immigration committee. The whole thing is gold.

http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CHRG-111hhrg58410/html/CHRG-111hhrg58410.htm

“You know, I think about the day that I had to
swim out into a sewer lagoon and dive into 9 feet of fluid to retrieve a pump. And when I think about the day that it was 20 below and I am in the water fixing a waterline, and the warmest place there was in the water. The work I have done in my life in the construction business and the work that we have put our workers through in and the pride with which they take means that it is an insult to me to hear that Americans won’t do this work.”

” The thought that comes to mind as I listened to your
opening statement is I wonder how the Eskimos got along all
those centuries without fresh fruit and vegetables if it is a national security issue.”

“Highly respected agriculture economist Phillip Martin of
the University of California notes that if there was a 40
percent increase in farm wages, the average household would
spend only $8 more a year on fruits and vegetables, less than the price of a movie ticket. I am sure that most Americans would gladly pay $8 more a year in order to ensure a legal workforce.
Cheap labor is just not worth illegal immigration’s cost to Americans as workers or as taxpayers.”

“If we did, we would realize that every day, American workers perform the dirtiest, most difficult,
most dangerous jobs that can be thrown at them, from crab
fishermen who venture out into some of the most roughest and most dangerous waters in the world, to the Joe the Plumbers of the world who many days would prefer the aroma of fresh dirt to that of the sewage from American elitists who disparage them even as they flush.”
