Short of votes, House abandons border bill at last minute
Washington Examiner ^ | 7/31/2014 | Susan Ferrechio

Posted on 07/31/2014 11:19:34 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

The House abandoned efforts to pass a bill to deal with the surge in migrants on the southern U.S. border Thursday.

House Republicans, who had authored a plan to spend $659 million on humanitarian aid as well as additional border security and judges, failed to garner enough support among their rank and file to come up with the 218 votes needed for passage.

They plan to adjourn today until Sept. 8, which virtually guarantees no action on legislation until after the August recess.

Republicans had to pass the bill entirely on their own because no Democrats were likely to support the bill, because it included language to change a 2008 law so that federal officials could more quickly deport unaccompanied children who have come here by the tens of thousands from Central American nations.

Not completely. The HOR shouldn't be funding anything except one way tickets home for these invaders. Add to that they got here with the assistance of Mexico. The HOR should be funding a 10-mile DMZ...the northernmost 10 miles of Mexico.

The HOR only does things we demand because they face re-election every two years. No more, no less....just enough to get re elected.

They need to be removed from power, first.
Then the positions of power need to be neutered so they can’t come back.

Then they need to be utterly shunned.

Best start would be Lamar. Let's make that race another Cantor message. Whether you live in TN or not, help Carr. It can be done even though Lamar is recruiting Dems, again.

That’ll require something besides phone calls
to get our point across.
I'm pretty sure, they're (GOP/E) are hearing from US(A)...
Mitch "Reid's *itch" McConnell, sent me a request for $$$$, I told them to
GTH & other reasons, why I'm NOT Contributing to "the *itch & the GOP/E"
(though these actions, shall send them to the Corrupters on Wall / "K" Street and
reject future conservative solutions, the only solution Is to neuter or defeat them.)

Not likely - it would mess up the big vacation at Martha's Vineyard

The HOR shouldn't be funding anything except one way tickets home for these invaders.

And then deducting the costs from foreign aid we send to the invaders Countries. Then when the debt is paid, shut off foreign aid.
