Posted on 01/31/2014 6:49:32 AM PST by Qbert
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said the set of immigration "principles" released Thursday by House GOP leaders suggest the door is open for reform.
"While these standards are certainly not everything we would agree with, they leave a real possibility that Democrats and Republicans, in both the House and Senate, can in some way come together and pass immigration reform that both sides can accept. It is a long, hard road but the door is open," he said in a statement.
Schumer is a leading author of the comprehensive immigration bill passed by the Senate last year, which House Republicans have rejected.
Of course he approves the GOP’s suicide.
I’m just concerned about where schmuckees thumb has been.
We’re so screwed .
I suppose they'll get their 20 pieces of silver out of it.
Really great, guys...you get a thumbs up from Chuck You Schumer. You disgusting pieces of dog squeeze.
That implies they don't want Amnesty.
They want it just as bad as the Rats.
It apparently has been up Boehner’s keester.
I suggest a 2000-page bill, filled with obscure clauses. When it actually goes into effect, anyone who tries to use it will discover dozens of ‘gotchas’. In the end, it will turn out that only a few hundred people our of 10 million are actually eligible.
I think at some point, the sane among us are going to clamor for secession and formation of free states.
Here that Republicans?
Schumer has given you the nod, you may approach the throne now and pay tribute to your king.
Is Schumer trying to kill the House amnesty efforts ?
Translation: Boehner and the House RINOs are ready to cave. Now, say good-bye to your base.
Chuck Schumer’s approval means it is a bad bill
there is not a bipartisan bone in his body
Friggen lickspittles. How embarrassing.
What it implies is, they don't want a Senate majority this fall.
The surest way to know something is wrong is UpChuckie is for it and that includes unanimous consent.
The GOP leadership is no different then the democrat leadership, they do not fold, or go weak kneed, they are one and the same, they both desire the same ends they are puppets to the same master, world fascism.
