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.
Who wudda thunk it. It appears Boehner grew a pair.
I’m still not opposed to having Boner Primaried out.
OMG!!! The Republicans found their backbones! AMAZING!!!
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.
Easy kill — the momentum wasn’t there.
Look out. Boner may be growing a spine. Will the wonders never cease.
(A reporter actually was able to distinguish the words quash and squash)
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.
we have a legal path to citizenship, use it if you want to stay.
Nah. This is all about winning that primary for his district. After that’s accomplished he’ll sell us out pronto.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Now the precious Hispanic vote is really, really going to hate the GOP. Instead of 70% of them voting for Democrats, it is going to be 71%.
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
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.
Could he have finally realized that if these foreign invaders were to be made voting citizens they would vote democRAT?
