Please take a look at the article linked below to understand how the amnesty bill the Senate passed yesterday is a sad betrayal of working class Americans of every ethnicity who will see their wages lowered and their upward mobility lowered too. And yet we still do not have a secured border. This Senate-approved amnesty bill rewards lawbreakers and won’t solve any problems – as the CBO report notes that millions of more illegal immigrants will continue to flood the U.S. in coming years.
Great job, GOP establishment. You’ve just abandoned the Reagan Democrats with this amnesty bill, and we needed them to “enlarge that tent” of which you so often speak. It’s depressing to consider that the House of Representatives is threatening to pass some version of this nonsensical bill in the coming weeks.
Once again, I’ll point out the obvious to you: it was the loss of working class voters in swing states that cost us the 2012 election, not the Hispanic vote. Legal immigrants respect the rule of law and can see how self-centered a politician must be to fill this amnesty bill with favors, earmarks, and crony capitalists’ pork, and call it good. You disrespect Hispanics with your assumption that they desire ignoring the rule of law.
Folks like me are barely hanging on to our enlistment papers in any political party – and it’s precisely because flip-flopping political actions like amnesty force us to ask how much more bull from both the elephants in the Republican Party and the jackasses in the Democrat Party we have to swallow before these political machines totally abandon the average commonsense hardworking American. Now we turn to watch the House. If they bless this new “bi-partisan” hyper-partisan devastating plan for amnesty, we’ll know that both private political parties have finally turned their backs on us. It will then be time to show our parties’ hierarchies what we think of being members of either one of these out-of-touch, arrogant, and dysfunctional political machines.
I’m listening to Sean Hannity interview Marco Rubio about the immigration bill. Everyone involved with the immigration bill is missing the key point: implementation and oversight.
Sure, Marco Rubio is a smart guy, but he’s not going to be administering or being held accountable for the implementation. What happens when the “smart guys” in the room aren’t around when some key aspect of the bill is ignored, either willfully or mistakenly.
They have to take into consideration the bureaucratic pitfalls in fashioning their bill. If not, we’re going to be left with another monstrosity that no one can implement or even follow.
There is so much going on that’s it’s hard to keep track of it all. The Benghazi affair has become a complete fiasco and I seriously doubt if we’re ever going to get any resolution on it. I hope we do, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it dies on the vine of our collective consciousness, although it shouldn’t.
The so-called “fiscal cliff” is all over the news. All I can say about it is this: Republicans, don’t bite. Let’s just go over the “Fiscal Cliff”. How much worse can it be than where we’re at today? Obama is demanding tax increases and has put forth nothing in the way of ideas on reforming entitlements, the elephant in the room. Screw him and all the Democrats in the House and Senate. Let them put THEIR proposals on the table first. Why the hell should Republicans?
No, forget about Benghazi and the “Fiscal Cliff”. I want to talk about immigration, the next big thing for Republicans to cave on. The GOP elite seems to think that if they pander to Hispanics, they’ll garner more votes. I don’t think so. Continue reading →
