Skip to comments.GOP ESTABLISMENT: CONGRESS SHOULD GIVE OBAMA 'BLANK CHECK' TO ADDRESS BORDER CRISIS
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.
GOP has gone completely over the edge.
Let us see the DAMN PLAN FIRST!!!!!!!!
Tell BO to use the $21 BILLION from his fines on the Banks THAT IS UNACCOUNTED FOR.
right Linda- give obama a blank check and the GOP wont get blamed for the mess
haven’t we been doing that for 5.5 years and a $3 trillion run up in debt since obama took office? what problems do obama-liberals not blame the GOP for?
America must decide. Do we want more or fewer Mexicans in this country?
“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.”
Lindsey Graham AGAIN. How did South Carolina ever elect such a turn coat?
I just can’t see myself ever voting for a Republican again.
Louie Gomert said he cannot imagine they will give Blam that kind of money for any reason.
What gets me is WE are the majority and WE are not pooling together as a fighting force to beat back the criminals that are being allowed to make thier own rules
And we should end all suppport for tax breaks to wealthy establishment Republicans and elite liberals.
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.
Is there anything more gutless then a GOPe?
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?
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.
As for the pizza delivery guy, at least he gives us something we can stomach.
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.
Blank Checks- The UNIPARTY’s favorite form of scrip.
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.
Proof positive that Acirema is a one-party dictatorship.
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!
