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.
And like a dog to a Milk-Bone, this is what the GOP craves most.
"Really great, guys...you get a thumbs up from Chuck You Schumer."
I mean, just a few weeks ago, he was out urging the IRS to ignore the law and Supreme Court decisions in order to punish the Republican's base- the main group of people who vote for them in elections... And this is the same scumbag they aim to please and trust to play fair on legislation? It's beyond sickening.
I’ve attempted to call Boehner’s office multiple times. All lines are busy, all voicemail boxes are full. I have a feeling this traitor is getting an earful from the Tea Party
If you get a thumbs up from Schumer, you’re definitely doing something very wrong. I guess the gop desnt want to win the senate.
I’m done with these people.
Or he's just got the phones off the hook and turned off voicemail, knowing that those pesky Tea Baggers would be getting on his case.
Is Schumer trying to kill the House amnesty efforts ?
No, he is confident some kind of amnesty bill will pass the House and is happily twisting the knife into conservatives. All the Dems want right now is to keep the issue alive and continue dividing the GOP.
So the Dems will take Cantors bill and the Chamber of Amnesty payola. You can take that to the bank.
I can understand that but he is risking killing the whole thing at the same time, but maybe he is happy either way.
If it passes or doesnt pass he pours gas on either flame.
"Im done with these people."
You're not alone. It became obvious when Paul Ryan and the House leaders cut benefits for Vets as part of the omnibus deal that something very morally troublesome was going on in the backrooms of the GOP. The fact of the matter is they simply don't care- they loathe the base; they feel they that all the beliefs that Conservatives have- especially on social issues (abortion, gay marriage, etc.)- are a dead weight to them.
The GOP-e members believe that they can look you in the eye and tell a bald-faced lie... and because you're probably just some "gullible, southern, hayseed rube" that you'll buy it all and still coming running to the ballot box in November. At some point people begin to ask themselves, why should I continue to support people who openly despise me, and take me for granted?...
Schumer loves Boehner.
The GOP-e members believe that they can look you in the eye and tell a bald-faced lie..
Yes, they think they can snow us. My Gov. Scott is up for reelection. He is down in the polls and going to need every single consertvative vote he can get. I told his office I wasn’t voting for anybody with an (R) behind their name in November if the GOP passes ANY legalization this year. Keep it simple. Let them decide if they want our votes in November.

Needs no more debate after that.
Chuckie will not be pleased with and House legislation.
We did not want Obamacare, and you Neo-Democrat RINOs gave it to us anyway, and we are the worse for it.
We DO want yall to enforce existing Federal Border Laws.
WE DO NOT WANT IMMIGRATION REFORM ! Yall gave us that in 1986, and we are the worse for it!
Now yall say that we need to cave in this year to Obama on Immigration Reform. Why this perversion to betray us!?
This is the same GEE OH PEE pablum that you Neo-Democrat RINOs have been always been feeding to the gullible, low information voters.
McCain, McConnell, Cornyn, Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan are always waiting for massive support from the Public before they even consider doing a pitched battle with the enemy.
The enemy is yall caving in to Obama! Just enforce existing Border Laws!
Yall go on TV to publicly beat yalls chests, and then reach across the aisle to yalls good friends in order to get something done.
You Neo-Democrat RINOs will never lead, will always wait for a groundswell of Public discontent before risking incurring the wrath of their most dreaded enemy: The Leftstream Media.
Note to all the Congressional RINO leaders: We gave yall in 2010 what yall said yall were waiting for - - - - The Massive TEA Party Rebellion, and yall fought us every step of the way, and are fighting us now more than ever!
We gave yall the support that yall asked for and yall betrayed us!
Betray us once, shame on you. Betray us twice, shame on us!
LEAD, OR GET OUT OF OUR WAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BTW, we have long memories, and just so yall know, RINO SEASON IS NOW OPEN AND THERE ARE NO BAG LIMITS !
Immigration reform can be considered successful when amnesty results in no new citizenships being handed out.
