Skip to comments.Boehner: Amnesty After GOP Primary Filing Deadlines
Posted on 12/04/2013 10:42:26 AM PST by george76
John Boehner plans to push amnesty legislation through the House, after the primary filing deadline for candidates. The move would prevent Tea Party from challenging GOP lawmakers who support amnesty in 2014.
Scott Braddock reported on Tuesday that in recent weeks, various Texas business interests have told Quorum Report that Boehner has been telling them that he will start holding immigration votes not long after the filing deadline has passed.
Braddock noted that those business community sources spoke with him on condition of anonymity because their conversations were held behind closed doors and they added it wasnt made clear to them just how confidential the information was meant to be.
Nevertheless, what was made clear was that Boehner felt the need to protect House Republican incumbents who are otherwise seen as conservative but have expressed an openness to immigration reform that includes a robust guest worker program, Braddock wrote, before citing three specific Texas GOP congressmen: Reps. Ted Poe (R-TX), John Carter (R-TX) and Sam Johnson (R-TX).

This ASSHOLE sounds more like a fucking RAT each time he opens his pie-hole.
Is he still claiming to be a Republican?
Insidious, as usual. By hook or by crook, they plan to push Amnesty through, to satisfy those paying them off.
How many different positions on amnesty for illegal aliens has Boner claimed during the past year? He is the most pathetic pretend leader ever in a high position of the Republican party.
This strategy is total cowardice and deceit, beyond despicable. That Republican members of the House would tolerate this from their so-called leader tells us how low things have gone.
Then all Pubbies need to be primaried, if only to get them on the record.
He MUST lose his Speakship.
With Obamacare being fought out, the GOP isn't going to risk getting destroyed over immigration reform.
Boehner is as stupid as Obama.
Immigration reform is about greed.
Immigration reform is about money.
Immigration reform is about supply and demand.
Increase the supply of labor and demand falls, wages fall, your wages fall.
Ask yourself why the government CHOOSES to not enforce immigration law?
The political donor class and the employer class hold the reins of the government through how the political parties are funded. These are the people who are demanding the government ignore parts of immigration law.
Greed, plain and simple.
Increase the labor supply and the amount you have to pay people goes down, and you no longer need to treat them very well, because there are MILLIONS of hungry fearful people who will put up with it because the supply of jobs shrinks relative the number of people looking for work.
Thats a ‘win win’ for the employer class and the political donor class.
Once again the middle class is being squeezed for the benefit of the few, follow the money.
Any politician who pushes immigration reform without demanding the laws on the books be enforced is an enemy of your future, an enemy of your childs future.
Those politicians are doing the work of the employer class and the political donor class, society and culture be damned.
Dare to speak against them and you will be labeled ‘racist’ by the media, a media controlled by the employer class and the political donor class.
The government no longer is about public service, it is about the money.
When the government is free to select which laws to enforce, with the blessing of the courts your freedom vanishes.
And there is no one to vote for who could/would fix it, from either party.
We are so screwed.
Seeing Ted Poe’s name there raises one red flag. The later notation of “guest worker” raises another.
Speaker Boehner has two primary challengers. Please read up on them and let’s start to send either or both as much money as we can.
Easy to spill sour beans here. But, best is to call these congressmens office and tell them to what you think of them. I just called Ted Poe’s office and the person who answered said that Ted poe is opposed to amnesty and always will be. He wants enforcement only. Don’t know if they are sincere or not but that is at least hopeful. The more angry calls they get the more likely they are to stay that way.
Well, this won’t work out well for him, because this means we’ve gotten the heads up. We will primary-vote accordingly.
I called all three congressmens office listed and gave them my mind. All of thems say they are opposed to amnesty and know nothing otherwise. Dont complain here call them and complain. You get there contact numbers from the internet.
I'm a belt and suspenders kind of guy. Always have backup. Call them, for sure, but have a primary opponent, too, to make sure they focus.
I'd like to say that the move won't prevent irate citizens from shooting Congress-critters, starting with Boner, but I might get in trouble with NSA so I won't.
Besides, I thought the TEA Party was dead.
I don’t understand how, w/ unemployment so high and unchanging, we’re talking about guest workers.
Big money trumps the voting base.
Boehner & co are so comfortable in their elite bubble they have forgotten voters can replace them.
Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, McCain, Graham, Rubio and their ilk are turning what is now an overwhelming defeat for the Democrats in 2014 into a Republican disaster, perhaps even loss of the House (although with Boehner in charge it really doesn’t matter).
For the 18 Hispanics they win over by pandering, they will lose 8 million conservatives who won’t put up with the Boehner backstabbing.
You Republicans out there - know that the RINO establishment, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Wall Street Journal think you are a bunch of stupid, ignorant, mind-numbed robots who will still vote for the RINOs because you have no place else to go.
They haven’t yet learned the lessons of McCain and Romney that these voters don’t have to go anywhere; they can also stay home.
“With Obamacare being fought out, the GOP isn’t going to risk getting destroyed over immigration reform.”
You just don’t realize the stupidity of the Republican establishment. Cantor, Rubio, Boehner and the like ARE going to push amnesty because their overpaid consultants and cheap labor contributors tell them to. America is not their concern - greed and personal gain are.
The DC politicians get $$ and campaign support from K Street lobbyists and their pals.
They do not care that the real unemployment for us little people is 30 some percent and headed to 40 percent.
This could be why the washerwoman keeps saying the Democrats will run on Obamacare. They won’t HAVE to run on anything to win when 1/2 of registered Republicans stay home because of Bonehead’s amnesty scheme. All they have to do is tell their half-witted supporters to give them money to help them complete the destruction of America and go fishing until Election Day.
I have told my rep in no uncertain terms that if Boehner brings up an immigration bill and it passes without a majority of GOP votes for it, then he is asked to initiate removal as Speaker.
We have not had a worse Republican Speaker of the House IMO.
This is why we need at least the threat of a third party.
The GOP, if they pass amnesty, should simply disappear in the 2014 elections
The GOPe doesn’t care about winning as much as they care about doing the bidding of the Democrats. They are owned by the Democrat Party, we only pretend to have democracy in this country.
Liberals do as liberals do.
Rand Paul is going to support amnesty too. He has spoken in favor of it before.
Getting on their cases can’t hurt.
Call his office, express outrage like I did.
I am not kidding.
His office staffer didn’t know why I was upset, and I explained myself very well.
This is all just political posturing — it wouldn’t do to not be “working on” immigration “reform”, but it doesn’t mean anything resembling amnesty could pass, and any actual immigration LAW reform (which is really what is under discussion) favored by the Pubbies would be a snowball in Hell of the Demonrats. But hey, that doesn’t mean that FINOs won’t try to keep everyone directed away from the threat posed by the Demagogic Party. Thanks GeronL.
