Senate Democrats Angle for Entire Gang of Eight Bill After Boehner Caves
Breitbart.com/Big-Government ^ | 7-29-2014 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 07/29/2014 12:33:55 PM PDT by servo1969

Senate Democrats are angling to include the entire “Gang of Eight” bill in a conference committee with whatever border crisis bill comes out of Speaker John Boehner’s House of Representatives, Politico reports.

“The only way any piece of the House proposal could become law is if it was conferenced with the Senate’s comprehensive immigration reform bill, which is something we’d certainly consider,” a senior Democratic aide told Politico.

Gang of Eight Republicans Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL), John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) recently issued a joint statement saying they did not want this to happen, but there’s no stopping Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker Boehner from entering a conference committee at which this could happen if both Reid and Boehner want to.

But the left is ramping up using its battle plans to force Republicans into a worse position with this too. “House GOP wants to change immigration policy on border bill,” Frank Sharry, a pro-amnesty advocate, Tweeted on Tuesday. “We do too: CIR [Comprehensive Immigration Reform]. Look forward to Senate Dems demanding CIR in conference.”

The Senate Democrats’ boldness comes as Speaker Boehner and House GOP leadership backed down, refusing to fight President Barack Obama’s plans to use executive orders to grant amnesty via executive order to 5 to 6 million illegal aliens in America.

I know republicans are sick and ineffective SOB’s but they have to have head inserted in rear to even consider this when 80% of the public are outraged by what Obama is letting happen on the border.

Good God!

Am I the only that thinks this? I’d say let the SOB sign an executive amnesty bill. Then it’s his, and he’ll reap the results of it. The country will go crazy. I think you’ll might see democrats losing just about every senate race.

The GOP must have given up on November’s elections if they allow Hopalong Harry the cattle rustler to get away with this crime.

The only immigration reform needed is to repeal what Teddy effing Kennedy got through 45 odd years ago.

The only other thing needed re: immigration is to a) stop all; and b) stop all.

Of course Boehner caved.
It’s what he does, he enjoys caving in, his secret ambition was always to be a worker at the Bunny Ranch.

At one time it was mine, too, but that was a long time ago, and I never had the responsibility of being Speaker of the House. /S

I think Boehner should do nothing and every republican ad from now until November ties every rat to supporting illegal immigration and supporting Obamacare.

The Boneheaded leadership of the Beltway Republicans have never figured out, or will never admit, that their betrayal of the base on amnesty schemes since W in 2006 is what has cost them millions of votes (people staying home) in the last two presidential elections.

And they probably are vain and stupid enough to pull some fool stunt before November and even manage to screw up the golden opportunity before them to gain seats in the House and Senate.

On the one hand, as the leaked Obama-Netenyahu transcript shows, Obama's approach to negotiating is "my way or the highway". I'm sure it is not easy for Boehner to work with someone like that, particularly when 75% of Washington is against your worldview. On the other hand, Boehner is clearly in over his head and has no clue what he is doing. It's too bad we don't have someone like Cruz in the House since that is the type of person we need as Speaker right now. Boehner and his type are a pathetic joke, but the joke is on the American people.

OK, the Obama-Bibi transcript apparently is phony according to what I'm seeing now. But, I have no doubt that Obama is tought to negotiate with, so my point still stands.

Do Republicans never want to be elected again?

Are the Democrats outright holding their families hostage, or do they have the IQ of pond scum?

I had to look twice to make sure this wasn’t satire. Boehner should be rounded up and held against his will at a hidden location until the November elections so that he won’t do something stupid.

The whole "Gang of Eight" thing is simply a publicity creation. That's why they gave it it a name in the first place.

The news media loves something that has a good "handle" on it and this fills the bill.

It lets them manufacture news when there really isn't any.

I knew the GOP was going to stab us in the back. I thought they would at least wait awhile.

They just ruined their chances for big wins.

We arguably do not even have free and fair elections anymore.

Fraud is rampant and goes unpunished.

Republicans are the blue blood country club banker faction of the Washingtonians, and Democrats are the communist/marxist faction of the Washingtonians.

It's us outside the Beltway against the Washingtonians from both parties.

It's time to stop looking to DC for solutions to the problems the degenerate sons of bitches in DC have created in the first place.

“Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”

I can’t help but suspect that perhaps Boehner and few other Pubs were involved in the surge to the border. In doing so- it would create a “crisis”- in which Obama would threaten to do another EO, and of course, Repubs would then have cover for coming up with an immigration bill. I really think we have been played.
