DCCC CHAIR: WE CARE MORE ABOUT AMNESTY THAN MIDTERM ELECTIONS
Breitbart ^ | April 14, 2014 | By Tony Lee

The top Democrat who is leading the effort to help the party elect more members to Congress said he cares more about amnesty than the midterm elections.

Appearing on CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley on Sunday, Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY), the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said the midterm elections are taking a backseat to the amnesty legislation Democrats and establishment Republicans desperately want.

"We'd rather pass an immigration bill than worry about the election. We have got 190 Democrats ready to vote on a comprehensive immigration bill today," Israel said while also accusing Republicans of being racists for opposing Obama and amnesty. "We can do it today. And we know that not every Republican is going to agree with us on that. It passed the Senate with 67 bipartisan votes. All we need is 20 Republicans, just 20 to vote for that bill and it will be law and we don't have to have this debate anymore."

Funny, leading GOPe RINOs and liberaltarians feel the same way. When the GOPe and the democrats agree that we need to flood our economy with hordes of illegal immigrants, then liberty is in big trouble.

We desperately need a second party.

If they get amnesty then long term they reckon they’ll never lose another election -— and chances are that’s true -— so what’s one last mid-term election loss, then?

They can say that because there isn’t a chance in hell they could take the House back. In the Senate the demoncraps are happy to talk about anything but Owebamacare.

Look...A Squirrel!

Gnashing of teeth and drooling. The Dems are lamenting that they did not pass blanket amnesty before they passed Obamacare. They have learned. They will not forget.

“The lame-duck Congress is going to pass amnesty after the midterm elections.”

Count on them trying anyway.

The RINOS that will hopefully be voted out in November will, in spite, vote FOR amnesty in December.

Translation: We are willing to accept short term losses for 12 million new Rat voters and then we will never lose again.

Well, she's actually correct on this. If this did pass that would be the end of the debate as the dims would win out going forward.

DNC is telling the current office holders: Vote for this now and perhaps lose your seats but the hoards of welfare newbies will clinch the elections from next time on and you will get your seats back... and bigger pieces of the pie next time round..

“We have got 190 Democrats ready to vote on a comprehensive immigration bill today,” Israel said while also accusing Republicans of being racists for opposing Obama and amnesty.”

Israel apparently sees himself as a reincarnation of Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel—scorched earth, Tell the Big Lie often enough to make the Low Information Voters believe it, despicable character.

There’s got to be a place in the lower reaches of Hell for these demagogues.

Just like they cared more about socializing the US medical industry than they did the 2010 midterms.

Just the cost of doing business to them.

Same with Amnesty, but this time they don't hold all 3 branches of government, just 2-1/2.

The Obama administration, from its first conception, has been planned as an effort to implement as much of the Marxist program as possible as quickly as possible. They understand there will be a backlash but they know from past experience with Wilson, FDR, Johnson that even during a backlash the GOP never really roll back anything. The Left fully expect to step back into power after a few out years and find almost all of their machinery still fully in place, ready to be employed to further advance us towards their concept of totalitarian perfection.

Who cares about the ballot box? Too many people here are putting stock into the Republicans thinking that they’re going to come to their senses. Screw the mid-terms and the 2016 horse race. Start making plans. NOW
