I’m shocked – SHOCKED, I say! Republicans are going to do nothing about President Obama’s executive action on amnesty? Break a promise? Whaaaaaaat?
Well, don’t say I didn’t tell you so because I did. HERE.
These GOP establishment sell-outs spent the past four years raising money and trying to figure out how to shut-up the Tea Party and conservatives so we won’t mess with their plan to increase taxes, increase spending, fund ObamaCare and jam through Amnesty. That’s right – and now, please tell me how I’m wrong, because I’m really curious.
As I’ve said time and time again – these Republicans have no interest in conservatism. They are not upset at the spending that’s been going on since 2006 – they’re jealous because there own cronies weren’t getting fed at the teat.
When are we going to learn? When?
We have ObamaCare and now we’re going to have Amnesty. Then Hillary, if we’re lucky – because the alternative is Jeb and a return to the year 2000 when the GOP controlled government because the biggest spenders, biggest deficit creators and the biggest liars in the country’s history. Look it up you Republican hacks and groupies.
I’m tired of being told I’m wrong – because I’m right and maybe, just maybe – now you know it:
Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) suggested that House Republicans are on the verge of breaking their campaign promise to fight President Obama’s administrative amnesty, judging by the legislative text currently being circulated.
Sessions said that the proposed language “fails to meet [the]test” established by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who promised earlier this year that the GOP would do everything possible to thwart Obama’s executive orders.
“The executive amnesty language is substantially weaker than the language the House adopted this summer, and does not reject the central tenets of the President’s plan: work permits, Social Security and Medicare to 5 million illegal immigrants — reducing wages, jobs and benefits for Americans,” Sessions said in the statement expressing his dissatisfaction with the results of a House Republican conference meeting today.
In the meeting, “the lawmakers began coalescing around a two-part plan that would allow a symbolic vote to show their frustration with President Obama’s executive action on immigration, before funding the government ahead of a Dec. 11 deadline,” according to the New York Times.
Sessions wants Congress to attach a rider to the government-funding bill that prohibits Obama from implementing the orders; his office released a list yesterday, compiled with the assistance the Congressional Research Service, of instances in which Congress did just that on a variety of issues last year.
“Congress must respond to the president’s unlawful action by funding the government but not funding illegal amnesty,” Sessions said. “This is a perfectly sound and routine application of Congressional authority. In fact, the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service reports that last year’s omnibus spending bill included 16 such funding restrictions on fee-based programs.”
To those inclined to worry that using the spending power would backfire on Republicans, Sessions suggested that economic populism would lead to a GOP victory.
“Polling shows voters believe that Americans should get preference for available jobs by almost a 10–1 margin,” Sessions said. “Republicans should not be timid or apologetic, but mount a bold defense of struggling Americans.”
