"Every day, incrementally, this shutdown begins to add more and more pain to the American people. And the piecemeal, "lets fix this little part because weve been criticized" that the Republican majority is attempting every day on the floor, whether its Head Start, whether its Impact Aid, whether its making sure the troops get paid, all these issues are not taking away from the fact that this shutdown is contrived. It is a meanweve seen this before, where, you know, Im going tothis kind of extortion. And then, unfortunately, Democrats give in, give in too soon. We have sequestration as a result of threats. We have the budget cuts, that were already in the budget, as a result of threats. And I think this is the same extraction. You dont hear them talking about getting rid of health reform now. Theyve moved on now to deficit reduction, entitlement programs, Social Security, Medicare. Thats always been on the agenda. And the fact that Boehner, who is the titular head of the House of Representatives and the speaker of the House, is not able to control or ignore 30 to 40 extremists in his caucus from the tea party is beyond anyany reasonable person trying to figure this out. Im glad that Democrats are standing firm. And as we go forward with this, how long can they drag it out?"
"I think the fight over the debt ceiling and the budget is a harbinger of the fight over immigration. Those 30 to 40 to 45 tea party extremists have done nothing but try to block any effort, with threats within their own caucus, on immigration reform, comprehensive immigration reform."

I think Grijalva has a goofyass dream of making the American southwest part of his beloved Mexico. The boy is a two peso punk.
here’s a deal, we’ll let them raise the debt limit every year that immigration reform and gun control don’t come up.
The guy is a disgusting slimeball. Hey Raul, the United States is not yours to give away! Get Lost!
I’m tired of this Mexican ahole and others of his ilk calling members of the TEA Party “extremists.”
It’s about time for the conservatives to use this same word to describe rat socialists like Grijalva, because these rats are all left-wing extremists.
Hey Raul have you and your illegals stopped raping babies and grandmas’ to death? Or getting drunk and mowing down nuns and other citizens?
Maybe if you and your illegals would stop being criminals something could be worked out. Since you break the law to enter the country I doubt you will ever gain citizenship!
