A lot of us—Americans on the left and the right—might like to know how we got this massive e-cluster-**** after paying over a half-billion dollars ...
Maybe Issa’s committee might do what it says it does: looking into this current fiscal boondoggle and whether our money was “well spent” rather than railroading another, even greater national clusterscrew through before the year is out.

Let’s wait to see what Issa is proposing before we crucify him. Sounds to me like he wants to document the illegals, not to give them citizenship. They do need to be documented so we know who they are.

It doesn’t matter if he passes amnesty or it fails. He and his CINO friends get the low-information voter (LIV) benefit of the doubt.

But if this vote were held just prior to the 2014 elections, the situation would be utterly different. That’s why it’s being done now, while there’s enough time for the LIVs to divert their attention to some TV sitcom or Dancing With The Stars or whatever.

The Republican Party has significant cracks right now, obviously. Should they make a hard push for amnesty (and that is what this would amount to) or worse yet get this enacted, there will a new political party born.

I suspect that the establishment is expecting such a move, thinking they can marginalize and destroy the Traditional/Conservative ideology once and for all. But, I truly believe they live in their own bubble, and aren’t anticipating the kinds of numbers such a movement could attract, from both registered Republicans and even registered Democrats.

So, the “last, last, last straw?” Yep.

If employers could only hire citizens, some millions of illegals would go home. You know, that E Verify thingy.

You can sell that crap somewhere else. Your boy lost because he was a liberal. Issa would still be introducing it, and Mitt would sign it.

Issa is proposing a trojan horse amnest bill that will eventually go to conference with the Senate when passed by the House.

It’s clear Issa has been spending his time writing Amnesty bills instead of following up on any of his “investigations”.

Yep. In fact, they only had the scandal investigations in the first place to distract Conservatives from the big Rubio-Zuckerberg amnesty push. (As if the GOP-e really cares about the IRS harassing a bunch of Tea Party "hobbits"...)

Rand Paul’s immigration speech
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)
Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2998395/posts

...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]

Issa has let the USA die slowly, as citizens are
murdered, raped, and al Qaeda weaponized by a corrupt
government that HE purportedly oversees.

I refuse to go to Politico to read what they have to say. If Issa has indeed gone over completely to the dark side, this will come out soon enough. Why would politico make this relevant at this time? If in fact Issa has gone over, then his dance has been nothing but theater. FnF, IRS, and other ‘INVESTIGATIONS’ were nothing more than show.

By now we could have had a viable third party that was a force to be reckoned with. At least we would've had a fighting chance.

But most everyone would have none of it; preferring rather to ‘work within the party’ and/or ‘primary the RINOs’ and/or ‘only send money to the consevatives’.

That strategy worked out well, eh?

What is it with the word ILLEGAL that these politicians, especially so-called Republican politicians do not understand?

Worth repeating. The illegals broke the law. They don't deserve to be rewarded.

....And why DO we care if they come out of the shadows? Does it benefit the US? What's the point?

Unless it really secures the border, strengthens the Border Patrol, ICE, and CBE, cuts off benefits to illegals, and stiffens the penalties for illegal entry and for hiring illegals (I’m talking jail time; any fine will just be passed along to us), then it’s a bad bill. After these things are done, we can look at overhauling H1-B visas and other immigration procedures, streamlining the procedure for coming here legally, and other proposals.

The problem with any law is that no matter how it is written the democrats will never live up to the parts they don’t like. Look at how Obama has gutted the current INA. The things he does with the stroke of a pen are illegal and violate the “law of the land.”

Why? Have you not read Sarah Palin’s latest Facebook book review?

Boehner and the GOP leadership control the funds for electing or reelecting republicans to their seats and they sell the committee positions.

This is all about buying members out, or in the same sense having members sellout.

Issa is bought and paid for like so many others.

Rand Paul -- "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".

Rand Paul along with 90% of the stupid party GOP leadership apparently think that the 12 million (more like 20 million actually) are going to vote Republican after getting DemoRAT registration forms & tons of free stuff from the demoRATs? I think even Ted Cruz is in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens (I don't call the illegals to be immigrants...they are illegal aliens.

Our country is screwed because of demoRAT traitors, Republican traitors, a communist/muzlim 0dumb0 as president & a thoroughly corrupt judicial branch.

We need a great, massive, bloody Civil War... maybe we (conservatives) will end up with our own country and be rid of the liberals & leftists for at least another 3-4 generations.

The entire country is focusing on ObamaCare.

Therefore they will attempt to sneak this through while attention is diverted.

Nope. Paul’s plan is to give work permits to the ones who aren’t kicked out.... not citizenship... and crossreference them to make sure they’re not voting. I wouldn’t be surprised if Paul’s failed amendments are the basis for what Issa is working on. We’ll see...

Documentation would be a good first step towards eventual amnesty and citizenship or in other words an incremental step in the wrong direction.

The Republicans would be doing in slow motion want the Democrats want to do right away, amnesty and citizenship for illegals.

The two big parties are going the same way at different speeds. THE WRONG WAY......
