"Amnesty is wrong in any circumstance, and if we are going to fix our broken immigration system--and we should--it makes much more sense to do so next year, so that we are negotiating a responsible solution with a Republican Senate majority rather than with Chuck Schumer.
Anyone pushing an amnesty bill right now should go ahead and put a 'Harry Reid for Majority Leader' bumper sticker on their car, because that will be the likely effect if Republicans refuse to listen to the American people and foolishly change the subject from Obamacare to amnesty.

Dumping Boehner will give him time to figure out how to officially change his party registration to Democrat.
please just get rid of boehner AND mcconnel.
both are wortless scumbags
“Gowdy just went with Paul Ryan to talk to Sen Chuck Schumer to work on passing Illegal Alien Amnesty
Trey Gowdy is another Amnesty Liberal...no more Amnesty Liberals”
I to have my doubts about Gowdy and believe he is a “climber” and will do anything to get in front of a camera. We need someone with YEARS of integrity if we can find someone in the cesspool of DC. Maybe it is Gohmert
BUT, we have heard this before that the House pubbies were going to dump Boehner and coup was going to happen. All that happened it provided more ammo for the Odinga crowd, nothing more.
Either the pubbies need to let their balls drop and do it or STFU.....
And anyone who pushes citizenship for illegal aliens over people who legitimately came here through all the proper channels, waited in line, and did things the right way, to become an American, needs to be thrown out of office.
Well said, and imaged.
Yeh thats a scream. Cantor is just a Boehner mini me. I’d like to see Tom Price as Speaker.
Apparently SC Republican primary voters are just as uninformed about Gowdy as they are Loveable Lindsey.
The 2013 RINO Cave In by Boehner and McConnell during and after the Reid-Obama partial shutdown of the Federal Government last Fall sealed the final approval of Commie Obamacare.
Thus, Obamacare became the Litmus Test for the RINO Wing of the Republican Party.
The Hold your nose when you vote and hope for the best old argument that states:
It is better to have a RINO Republican in Congress who will always cave in to the Democrats than it is to have a Democrat in Congress is now subject to scrutiny by the impact of first FIVE YEARS of evidence from our Obamacrat Democrats and Cave In Obamacrat RINO Republicans.
What say all of you?
Do you know that Gowdy is "hot" for Immigration reform. All Conservatives should hold Gowdy in contempt for that one position.
It cannot be emphasized enough -- the passage of ANY immigration bill will truly and utterly end our Republic as Founded. It's checkmate.
I don’t agree with Labrador. I think Boehner should go back to Ohio tonight and NEVER come back. Think of the damage to the United States that a strong leader like Trey Gowdy could have stopped!
Minimally, I guarantee you a Select Committee on Benghazi and another one on the IRS and another one on Fast & Furious would be operating and nearing action.
Boehner is a disgrace and cannot see opportunity to shine if it jumped up and slapped him in the face.
He told Steve King a week after Romney lost that the GOP will lose if they dont solve immigration.
He wants good Dreamers to be approved and bad Dreamers to be deported.
Steve King has the border hawks, Big Ag, Big Ethanol and Big Wind on his side.
Steve King actually has a moderate argument for being speaker.
Nor in the Executive Branch either.
Yes Boehner is a heavy, heavy drinker. The man parties hard.
But you should also know that magnificently-groomed, he is easily Congress' best-dressed fellow. He is debonair and smooth with the ladies, will drive hundreds of miles to go to a party, is unfailingly polite, a very good ball room dancer, and socially adept. He never met a pretty blonde he didn't like. As far as the drinking goes, he hardly ever falls down, and although his speech is known to thicken somewhat, he hardly ever slobbers.
When he is finally primaried out of his very safe seat seat (unlikely since he is in a gerrymandered district exclusively populated by wealthy blue-haired matrons and widows who think the world of their Johnny and love it when he cries) he will be a dyn-o-mite lobbyist.
His wife puts up with him and so should you. Don't sell Johnny Boner short. It's his job to sell you short.
