Posted on 12/05/2018 7:57:36 PM PST by grey_whiskers
The House GOP leadership is responsible for blocking a pro-American immigration reform package which was backed by President Donald Trump, a top House chairman said Tuesday. The GOP leadership let the House immigration reform die in June by allowing a critical bloc of GOP legislators to split their votes between two rival reform bills, said Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the retiring chairman of the House committee on the judiciary.
The strategy of having two options really let people have an off-ramp they could vote for the more conservative bill and against the other, or vote for the second bill and not the first, Goodlatte said,

House leadership = Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House
Ryan and McCarthy set the whole thing up a year ago
Tell us something we don’t know, Bob.
Well now they can pretend to be an opposition party again.
We need to make a list of GOPe members that need reservations for GITMO.
Article states....”The strategy of having two options really let (politicians) have an off-ramp.”
‘Political Gamesmanship’....the use of dubious (although not technically illegal) methods to win or gain a serious advantage.........the art of winning without actually cheating.
Both bills sucked!!! All of them don’t give a damn.
The corporate lobbyists got their money’s worth with the scumbag GOPe. Now they will work to get Trump defeated in 2020.
This would be the same bunch of Bush League Republicans who were going to pass Rubio’s Gang of Amnesty bill in 2014 with Democrat votes the day after Eric Cantor’s primary.
They were so shocked at us taking out a sitting majority leader they backed down and never brought it to the floor.
Curse them; they are enemies of America, and of all Americans.
Dirtbag McCarthy had the nerve to run for speaker (now minority leader) on a phony “build the wall” bill. He had a pac running radio ads all over the country. They must have spent millions. Somebody owns him now. Not that it matters with the GOP in their preferred minority position now.
Goodlatte was in on the scam. He barely raised an alarm while this farce went on for months. Everybody knew what game Amnesty Ryan was playing.
Lyin’ Ryan is a corrupt UniParty hack.....always has been.
GOPe is UniParty.
UniParty hates Trump, America and the unwashed masses (that’d be us) except for April 15th when we have to pay our “taxes’ to them.
Because Paul Ryan is a lying traitorous coward
Speaker Ryan: No balls, no leadership, his plans were ruined when Hilldog lost.
Dont you mean conservative Representative McCarthy and his conservative build the wall bill? I got so sick of hearing that tripe I could retch.
Trump should just order the military to build the damned thing, and man the damned thing. Make it last 1000 years.
