John Boehner: Immigration work not dead
Politico ^ | 11/21/13 | SEUNG MIN KIM

Posted on 11/21/2013 9:39:41 AM PST by jimbo123

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) reaffirmed his commitment to enacting immigration reform, a week after the chances of an overhaul appeared dead following his comments that he would not support negotiating with the Senate on its comprehensive bill.

“Is immigration reform dead?” Boehner told reporters. “Absolutely not.”

Now an additional reason to make this dead, add to the list: Harry Reid take-over today (nuke option) of the Sinate.

Lame duck session. After all the primaries and elections are over, they will use whatever power they have to screw us over.

After reading that article I wouldnt hold my breath for amnesty if I had a bunch of relatives who were illegals.

Bohner pretty much said nothing.

Right now, although undeserved, a Republican takeover of the Senate and an increased majority in the House and state legislatures is a slam dunk.

Fortunately for the Democrats, Republicans like Boehner, Cantor, McCain, et al., will work for and probably pass amnesty (aka “immigration reform”), parts of Obamacare, tax increases and debt expansions, making a sure-thing win into another cowardly loss.

Conservative Republicans are already making alternative plans for election day, like golfing, shopping, sodoku puzzles, knitting, whatever, rather than vote for backstabbing RINOs.

I think that it was Rush who said that the Republican plan is to not say or do anything that would give the Democrats an opening to attack Republicans, on the other hand, that doesn’t mean that they are going to give them everything that they want. The idea is to verbally agree to everything the Democrats want, but not carry through.

They aren’t going to push for spending cuts this year, but they won’t agree to a tax increase for more spending and they will not claim that immigration reform is dead, but who knows when they will have time to tackle it and how that will be accomplished.

Let the Democrats hang themselves with the rope of Obamacare.

This guy is just another obama’s minime!

Boehner has no foundation, no compass, he’s in a maze of misdirection, he’s a festering flesh eating sore, makes my skin crawl, like being around a flea infested mangy dog.

This is my kinder gentler rant, what I really think is not fit for print on FR.

...and this is why the Senate gutted the filibuster rule.

DC despises individualism. DC power depends on dependant slaves.

Yes, “they” must have turned up the degree of the blackmail intimidation of Boehner because of something he (or his daughter/son-in-law) has done. Or perhaps payoffs have been involved.

Boehner is an a*hole.

Watch, he’ll pull some sort of 6:30 AM News Years Day nonsense with three members and a voice vote.

Always pushing the Democrat agenda, never calling Obama on his illegal decrees.

Boner’s lame duck session Amnesty scheme will go down in history as the biggest FU from The Ruling Class to working Americans if it isn’t stopped.

C210N:" Now an additional reason to make this dead, add to the list: Harry Reid take-over today (nuke option) of the Sinate."

EXACTLY TRUE !!
The House needs to be AWAKE , and counteract the dictatorial power grab by both the Executive and Senate .
That calls for alert leadership, not what we have been expieriencing lately in the House !!

Looks like the little terrorist event at Boner’s house yesterday scared him into capitulation.

If Illegal Alien Amnesty is passed by the House...they can forget keeping the House and regaining the Senate

The GOP needs to REPEAL OBAMACARE....not extend it to Illegal Aliens. I will vote Third Party or Independent if Amnesty is passed. I will not waste my Conservative vote on an Amnesty Liberal GOP

“House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) reaffirmed his commitment to enacting immigration reform”

“Immigration reform”—weasle words for amnesty, continued mass immigration, and continued displacement of American workers.

The jobs Big Business/MultiNationals/Globalists can’t outsource to China they want to insource by importing third-worlders.

So let me get this straight: On the day that Harry Reid goes nuclear in the Senate and destroys the filibuster... Boehner turns around and wants to reward the Dems with more future voters? Honestly, you can’t make this stupidity up...

Reince Preibus and his little clan of opportunistic consultants care more about getting big MarkZuckerdollars than they do about winning next year.

I wonder if Cantor said to the illegals:”Don’t screw this up” and then they went back out on to the street.

John Boehner, immigration may not be dead to you, but I can tell you that the GOP you help lead is dead to me.

It feels good to reject the GOP, and as I've told others here, not a week goes by that the GOP doesn't do something to show how liberal it's become.

Boehner in the House and Cornball in the Senate could mean amnesty all right. People in OH and TX don’t understand the terror they face.

Boehner and the liberals are also scared of the illegal alien crowd. They have to promise them something and some sort of progress. If he came out and said he is not giving them citizenship and only the legalization scam they would be on his doorstep.

"John Boehner: Immigration work not dead"

But your political career should IMO be dead John, and take McCain and other weak kneed self serving twits with you as well.

Boehner in his heart is a true Democrat, but he has power masquerading as a Republican. People in OH are clueless too.l
