GOP ESTABLISMENT: CONGRESS SHOULD GIVE OBAMA 'BLANK CHECK' TO ADDRESS BORDER CRISIS
teapartyorg.ning.com ^ | 7/12/14

Posted on 07/13/2014 7:36:52 AM PDT by cotton1706

While liberal activists keep pushing Democrats to make more concessions regarding the flood of illegal immigrant children across the border, GOP consultants in D.C. are suggesting that Republicans roll over and approve President Barack Obama's request for $3.7 billion without any concessions.

And they are doing so to liberal outlets like the Huffington Post.

POLL: Do you support sending armed troops and drones to secure the border?

Since only $400 million of those funds would actually go to strengthen border security, Republicans have been wary of giving the Obama administration a "blank check" without getting some concessions, like having National Guard troops on the border or changing a 2008 law that prevents the federal government from immediately deporting illegal immigrants who are not from Mexico or Canada.

Al Cardenas, the Chairman of the American Conservative Union, told the liberal outlet that the border crisis is actually an excuse to pass comprehensive amnesty legislation. He said this is a "crisis in need of a solution, and that's what you go to Congress for."

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Republicans should just roll over and not ask for concessions because doing so would make them "get blamed for perpetuating the problem."

Frank Luntz, the establishment Republican strategist, said "being right is not enough" and Republicans have to "be for something, not just against the President." That usually is code for more government or being Democrat-lite.

Congress should give 0be a serious ass-kicking until he is on the other side of the border.

Scroo you, Frank. When you hire a roofer or contractor do you just give them a big fat check without having any idea what they are going to do with it or where they are going to spend it or whose house they are going to work on with it?

I understand that they want him to “own it” but he’ll never own anything and the media will give him a pass because he’s a democrat and the democrats will blame Bush and everyone else will be racist.

save the 4bill and let it add to his legacy of failure.

Since Americans will not rise up and tell this government to straighten up, I believe the Democrats should be empowered to confiscate the funds and property of anyone they choose and use the money from that to pay for everything these illegals need. Either put a stop to all of this or completely surrender. One can not hang in the middle forever.

Soon, we will be hearing about how this is not an invasion because we are all really one people - Norteamericanos.

America must decide. Do we want more or fewer Mexicans in this country?

Lindsey Graham AGAIN. How did South Carolina ever elect such a turn coat?

Obama, Biden, Pelosi, and many others invited them here so they should pay the costs. It is the right thing for them to do. They do large fundraisers all the time, this would be a great opportunity for those that support illegal immigration to put their money where their mouth is.

He NEEDS the $4 billion to pay his get-out-the-vote corps in 2014 and 2016! Vote-fraud is expensive!

You don’t REALLY think he wants to “help the children”, do you?

Like the fat guy delivering pizza.

Hey. Easy on the fat guy thing. If it wasn't for us holding the planet in place the whole thing'd just go spinning off into space.

Errrrrr.....wait.

As for the pizza delivery guy, at least he gives us something we can stomach.

Usually.

Let’s start by limiting “charitable deductions” to $1MM in cash (or check) and to zero dollars for “artwork”, “papers” and anything else whose “value” is “determined” by an appraiser.

But please hold off until I “contribute” my finger-painting of The Lyin’ King to the White House’s art collection. The $20MM “deduction” I plan to claim for that “beauty” should keep me tax-free for YEARS...

Congress should impeach Traitorobama on multiple charges of giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

“GOP has gone completely over the edge.”

The GOP was infiltrated long ago. All part of the evil plan.

I don't think there will be more than two main parties, but that doesn't mean we have to roll over and take it. We're just going to have to continue to get rid of guys like Cantor, Luntz and Graham.
In the interm resist them, and fight. It's always going to be a battle.
They say the right things to get in and then step all over the people who worked hard and gave them their money to get in.
Backstabbers, we have a lot of them. John Roberts comes to mind. What a massive mistake.

Barry will be going through the taxpayer dollars pretty damn quick paying his Hispanic voter base (You’re going to have to speak Spanish) $6054 bucks a month for each invader they house in their homes. Even the illegals will be coming “out of the shadows” to clean up on this big money, government give-a-way.

I can’t think of a bunch more stupid bastards than the Republican Establishment. It is easy to see why they richly earned the moniker of The Stupid Party!
