Looks like the Obamacare debacle is giving Republicans a little more courage.

The Senate had the BRASS EGGS to come up with a 1300 page bill -- AGAIN -- that nobody had read. These people think that will work, AGAIN?

It's too early to tell, but it looks like the Repubs have actually started to look out for themselves and their prospects in 2014 again.

Even Rubio walked away from the gang. A little too late to help him though.

Thank you to the Marxist in Chief for the disaster that is Obamacare. You’ve fortified the GOP on all matters unrelated. Enough 2700 page, all-encompassing legislative “reforms” that will never be enforced as per the letter of the law, and, worse, will certainly run afoul of the constitution.

He still must be primaried. The only reason he’s doing this is because we are on him like white on rice. We can’t be fooled by his sudden conservativism.

House Speaker John Boehner is now on record saying he has no desire to discuss the matter with the Senate. Which means that as far as this Congress is concerned, an amnesty deal is all but dead this year.

Can we take his word?

The Senate bill was never sent to the House. If it had been, it would have been sent back (blue-slipped)to the Senate for revision because it contained appropriation and revenue language that must originate in the House.

Yep, Obamacare and the fact that the Obama's approval ratings have dropped into the high 30's in most polls. There is absolutely no political risk in opposing anything Obama supports with public approval that low.

Good. We can breath a little bit for now.

However, this issue is not dead. Like all other social and legislative priorities for liberals, they will bring this up again and again until it finally passes.

Don’t forget the following issues that passed after numerous failed attempts in Congress and/or state legislatures:

1. Health care
2. Abortion
3. Gays in the military
4. Women in combat
5. Destruction of the family
7. Affirmative action
8. Destruction of schools
9. Promotion of Atheism

Still on the agenda:
1. Amnesty for illegals
2. The “BT” portion of LGBT legislation

They will not rest until the two things above occur. If amnesty happens, our country will not survive. That is a mortal threat to our republic. We will become just another Chavez-like banana republic or another Argentina basket-case economy in short order if amnesty is passed.

Bonehead and Reid collaborated in the shelving of the immigration issue for the year. Their agreement; Bonehead goes along with the maneuver of the repubs producing a bill that allows people to keep their current health insurance. The ploy is to let the dems off the hook over the obozocare wreck. Rush nailed it today. Congressman Upton submitted a bill that would allow people to keep their old health care insurance but it has no teeth of mandate but Bonehead will push it through congress. The congress will send it to the Senate and Reid will reject it thus favoring a dem bill that has teeth. Obozocare survives and the Dems save the day and the repubs once again will be tagged as the bad guys.

It is obvious that obozocare is one of the primary conduits designed to destroy the middle calss as well as deplete the baby boomer generation in America. As we watch it unfold...........................

Well we hope so, but what they need to do now is to start working on Obama and his Executive Order.

They need to start voting to nullify his orders already given to Border Patrol and ICE agents to lay off., and other orders stopping deportations.

If not Obama will pass a faux amnesty on his own. It’s stop to snatch Obama’s EO’s to a screeching halt

And this is why Ted Cruz and the Tea Party ARE succeeding despite what the RINOs will tell you. They are pushing the RINOs to the right out of fear that the RINOs will lose their jobs. The Tea Party is setting the agenda because they’ve shown they don’t back down, so their threats are taken seriously.

The Democrats must be overjoyed about Boehner killing the amnesty bill.

After all, didn’t the Dems and the media (same thing, I know) tell everyone that the Republicans would never win another election if they didn’t help pass the amnesty bill?

Well now, it appears that the Republicans will never win another election ever again. That will teach them what happens when you don’t listen to liberals. /heavy sarcasm.

If this is true they should be passing a repeal of obamacare right now and passing real healthcare reform instead of the phony "if you like your plan you can keep it" garbage. It looks like they intend to be "to clever by half" milking the outrage against obamacare and doing nothing.

What happens if the Pubs don't win big in 2014? If obamacare isn't gone by then no matter how bad it is it may never be. There is a window now!

The GOP need to focus on things that THEIR constitutes (i.e. citizens) want rather than wasting more time on what was a bad immigration bill from the beginning with the biggest problem being that it required that you trust the Democrats and Pres Obama to implement it and adhere to any regulatory restrictions governing the legalization process.
The GOP needs to stop running point for bad Democrat ideas. Now lets hope they don’t try to help the Democrats out of this Obamacare mess.

” The only reason he’s doing this is because we are on him like white on rice.”

That, & Obama’s precipitously sinking poll numbers. The political animals in DC recognize an electoral pariah when they see one. Those who say Obama’s plummeting popularity doesn’t matter are just not looking at the larger picture.

Piecemeal means amnesty for the dreamers, parents, siblings, then farm workers, then factory workers.

One bill each for each amnesty group. Though this will be much longer process and can be blow up when Gowdy tries to pass the SAFE Act against La Raza’s wishes.

The shutdown and Obamacare moved Immigration out of importance among voters. Ayotte and Schumer said everyone will die if the amnesty bill did not get passed by the end of Summer.

Steve King has been the most public face of House GOP immigration policy until Boehner tries to pass amnesty bit by bit. It must annoy the professional Hispanics that the most effective Congressman King is still standing.
