Posted on 03/12/2014 7:33:28 PM PDT by bimboeruption
House Budget Chairman Paul D. Ryan told his local newspaper that Republican leaders do not have the votes yet to pass a rewrite of the nations immigration system.
We dont have the votes right now, the Wisconsin Republican told his local newspaper, the Janesville Gazette, in an interview Monday. Right now, were working hard to find where that consensus lies. Ryan said both the right and left are holding up an overhaul.
A poll of House Republican offices by CQ Roll Call found that just 18 members, including Ryan, publicly support the immigration principles Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio released in January.
I wonder how many support it behind closed doors?
There is a list of 19 US House Reps. who want to destroy American jobs, Jobs, JOBS by giving Amnesty to 30 million Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico, and their children born illegally in America.
Do you have a list of those US House Reps. who oppose Amnesty for the Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico, and their children born illegally in America?
The consensus is to follow Canaduh and get to a balanced budget. PDQ.
WTF are you thinking? WTF are you doing for/to the Country?
Who is running against this MOFO???? We need to get rid of him ASAP. Thank God we dodge this dang VP.
This clown can go fornicate himself. If I lived in his district, I’d vote for the Rat.
Ryan must be denied his job in the future.
There is only one immigration policy republicans should support - everyone abiding by the SAME RULES and following the LAW and immigrate in an orderly and legal manner.
Law breakers and line jumpers get the heave ho - and take their kids with them.
THEN the GOP can set about re-defining who gets the precious opportunity to come live in my blessed land.
They’ll have the votes...during the lame duck session post election. The GOP will knock out enough Democrats if the atmosphere is the same on election day as it is today to where they wouldn’t have the votes come January, so they’ll pass it while there are still enough Democrats to get it through and the Democrats remain in charge of the Senate.
That’s my prediction...not that I’m happy about this, but I would say that is the most likely outcome.
We ALL must understand that Paul Ryan is NOT a true conservative. He’ll sell out our military in a New York minute but WORK LIKE HELL TO ADVANCE ILLEGAL ALIENS.
They only need about 10 more.
They are waiting until after the primaries. Right now if they voted on it they would lose in the primaries, so they’re taking it off the table until later.
Only 17 or 18 republicans need to vote for it along with all the dems.
Boehner will ignore the Hastert Rule and allow dems to vote to pass it with his small group of moderate and RINO traitors.
I just got back from vacation in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Viet-Nam, Thailand, Singapore & Philippines. Was very impressed how strict every country is in checking status of people entering. My passport and visa’s were checked again and again and again along with my fellow travellers. Severe penalties exist for illegal entry in all countries.
Singapore has unemployment under 2%. There is a shortage of workers there. 30% of population is foreign workers with 2 year work permits. Singapore has no unemployment compensation from government. If you have no job, you don’t eat. So everyone finds a job! Highest tax rate is 20%. Signs of prosperity everywhere. Infrastructure is first rate.
It’s not immigration reform, it’s an effort to deal with the unwillingness to enforce the laws that exist NOW. Which begs an obvious question: why would any NEW law suddenly deserve more attention?
No Woulf, I’m sorry I don’t.
It will once the right votes in more RINOs “NO MATTER WHAT”
This would be one of those ‘whats’.
What a scumbag...
No wonder Romney picked him.
It’s doesn’t seem like Conservatives have enough time to build a coalition in Congress to save our country.
We’ve got a few excellent people fighting for us, but we need more.
District in Florida was about AMNESTY and Obamacare and see 2 page article and note below.
MUST LISTEN: Mark Levin tells the story behind the story on David Jollys Florida race
National GOP turns on Florida candidate
Effe DemocRat Paul RINO Ryan.
Before he ran with Romney, I thought I liked the guy. Romney brought out Ryan’s true colors.
So Ryan wants to pass an immigration bill that Obama will selectively enforce. Ryan and the rest of the GOPe are bloody idiots.
Remember the 1986 Amnesty Debacle!
Right you are!
Thanks for posting those links.
You would think they would learn from past mistakes. It’s obvious they don’t want to.
America needs to bring back jobs, and stop so much immigration.
Bring back jobs. Jobs.
Politicians are so dumb that - - - - -WHOA! That needs a thread of its own!
The thread would never end as there’s enough stupid politicians to keep it going for weeks.
Have you heard the one about the politician who - - - - .
That would take an even long lived thread of its own - - - .
Ryan is a strong candidate (strong Democratic Party candidate).
Consensus is that Paul Ryan will never hold a higher office. I wouldn’t vote for any ticket with this worm on it.
This weasel will never get my vote.
We should compromise on immigration...let the illegals stay and deport Democrats instead. I call it Latina hotties instead of leftist haters.
They have the votes and are waiting until after the primaries.
Ryan needs to go. I would be willing to give up his seat to a dem just to get rid of him.
Ryan types are traitors to the Republican Base and all Americans who are un- or underemployed.
Ryan, Boner and McSurrender and buds would bring in tens of millions of low income, low education, “free stuff”, Dem Party voters at a time when U.S.citizens are in dire need of jobs.
Clearly the RINOs are working for the super rich/Chamber of Commmerce who want cheap labor paid for by the Middle Class having to pay for the illegals free EverythingCare.
The RINOs like the Dems are working for the rich, against the little people...who elected them.
But for the RINOs short term gain (and Swiss bank accounts?), they are destroying their own Party. Kind of like the idiot paid to burn down his own family’s house (with the family inside).
Small wonder, “Stupid Party” as another name for the Repub Party is a shoe that fits so well.
“We should compromise on immigration...let the illegals stay and deport Democrats instead. I call it Latina hotties instead of leftist haters.”
I will vote for that...deport two Dems for every Latina.
Ryan, you’re an ignorant s*it head.
He will never get your vote but Ryan plans on getting lots of support from the citizens of Illegal Mexico Norte formerly known as USA.
There may also me be some very deserving women of other ethnic origins in our country without the proper credentials...and an almost limitless supply of Democrats to deport!
It sounds like they have concensus. Its not a pressing issue to most members. Its just that RINO Ryan isn’t getting the answer he was pushing for.
Ryan is a clown. He even looked weak in the debate vs that lunatic Biden.
Never thought I would say it but mitt was.a much better candidate than Ryan. Ryan was the weak one on the ticket.
He has made a lot of people that supported him before realize he’s not worthy of our support.
Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in 2014.
Ryan is like a liberal Dan Quayle. Quayle wasn't the most eloquent guy in the world. But he never worked against conservative interests. Ryan's whole reason for being appears to be to stick it to anyone who's ever paid into an entitlement program, while letting welfare leeches skate.
See tag line.
Paul Ryan for President. Woo! Woo!
No, we are the idiots because we keep putting these guys back in power. They are simply Progressive traitors, that easily lie to us and we ask for another portion every two years.
Quayle signed some letter recently supporting amnesty:
wonder when the last time that jackass has even seen an illegal alien ...FUDQ ..
My sentiments exactly. The dumbest guy in Wash DC, Joe Biden but he is a buffoon & a bully, chewed up Ryan with his smirks & guffaws & antics. All Ryan was able to muster up in order to counter those tactics was his deer in the headlights look and some weak sickly smiles. Forget about scoring points in the debate.... Biden publicly humiliated Ryan and boxed his ears but good!
Then in this past year's budget debate, the dumbest Dems in Wash DC ran circles around Ryan and got him to cave into all the Dem's spending proposals in exchange for maintaining the military budget.....and then the Dems promptly reneged on the military budget once the bill was submitted for 0dumb0's signature.
