Skip to comments.Senate votes for Amnesty Bill Cloture (John Cornyn Amnesty Flashback)
Posted on 02/05/2014 6:52:47 AM PST by jimbo123
Comprehensive immigration reform legislation passed a significant hurdle Tuesday when the Senate voted overwhelmingly to begin consideration of the lightning-rod bill.
Thirty Republicans, including Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), voted to take up the measure in the 84-15 vote, revealing a deep well of potential support.
The vote tally was a promising sign of bipartisanship and the legislation appeared to have strong momentum after Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) predicted Tuesday that immigration reform would become law by year's end.
The other GOP "yes" votes were McConnell and Sens. John Cornyn (Texas)

Slow motion suicide for the GOP
The end of the beginning of the end of the GOP-e Stupid Party, let alone the end of America.
He earned it.
That got the MSM sure that a bill to Obama was just around the corner, except there were many more corbers to go round.
I think of Rubio with this bill, its the Rubio amnesty bill.
The Republicans are becoming the Party of DUMBASSES!I am changing my voting registration to Independent or Libertarian ASAP.Screw em!
...the end of America
I'm not sure that everyone has thought this through, on both sides of the aisle.
On the one hand, you potentially have a flood of new voters on the Left, which would make it difficult to correct some of the missteps of the past 30 years. Unlike the spike at Ellis Island, where people came to be an integral part of this country and its opportunities, the new flood of immigrants will want all the benefits without any of the effort that the earlier group went to in order to be part of the USA.
On the other hand, we don't have the infrastructure and economy to give meaningful jobs to our existing citizens, let alone the flood of newcomers; think about how many of the incoming hoard will find themselves without work. That will make the unemployment numbers far worse, highlighting the problems the policies of the current administration are causing and the "cooking" of the books that have dogged us this new century. The new people will become the sunlight that exposes the gangrene that has been whitewashed for the last decade.
Yes, it means tough times for all of us, especially those who are squeezed by increasing prices (some of which is due to bad policy) and decreasing real income. I don't know about you, but I'm making exactly the same wage, adjusted for incoming, that I was making forty years ago, when I was just setting out in my first full-time job. My savings was wiped out almost completely by the brilliance of MIT grads.
Yes, we are in for thin times. But, will the pendulum swing back? That's the question.

| John Cornyn claims to be the 2nd most conservative member of the Senate.
Yet, as Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, he
hand-selected these "Republican" candidates:
Also, when he had a chance to stop ObamaCare by supporting Ted Cruz' filibuster
and hid behind a meaningless vote later.
He pulled the same trick on the Senate amnesty bill.
Why the hell doesn’t the gop get rid of Boehner and McConnel?
Sadly Boehner and McConnell ARE the GOP.
The problem is the GOP acts like it’s 1955 and the Dems are honorable colleagues rather than the ruthless progressives they actually are.
Good find, Jane. That post deserves to be put up as a separate thread. After all, activism is supposed to be one of this website's chief objectives.
They’re all traitors and should be ousted from DC.
