Posted on 05/21/2013 7:58:48 PM PDT by hope
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) backed down from a previous promise his spokeswoman made to Breitbart News that he would consider voting in favor of amendments to the Senate's immigration bill that would close a loophole allowing illegal immigrants immediate access to state and local welfare.

Is there any other country in the world stupid enough to do this?
Guys! it’s just a lesser evil! No need to get upset. Dems are worse you know!
And his state is ground zero.5. These clowns need to go.
Flake is an ***hole. I don’t know which one I’m more ashamed of. Juan McCain or the Flake.
A Republican senator’s actions demonstrating his real convictions?
I’m shocked. Shocked.
(Do I really need a sarc tag?)
This is just the start of all the Santa presents $$$$ that the GOP plans on handing out to get these peoples votes,
These traitors have no trouble bald-face lying to us to get a Dem bill passed.
They figure we will support them because of the IRS scandal even if they betray us with this.
It’s all a sham.
I think the death star is already half done.
If we could only see the dark side of the moon.
M-O-O-N, that spells... Loophole Giving Illegal Immigrants Immediate Welfare Access
Many will. You know it.
Hold it everyone. One of the article’s commentors stated that the reason Flake may have voted this way was that it increased the chance that it would kill the bill in the broader Senate.
“This guy is so wobbly it’s disgusting...He doesn’t belong in the Senate.”
I don’t know, he seems to fit in just fine, and that’s our biggest problem right now.
We’re distracted form the real invaders of the Constitution.
And these are the people we expect to bring Obama Crime Inc to justice? Fat chance.
Rubio is out there bald faced lying about this bill and he doesn't care if we see it, he figures he can just cry Benghazi or IRS and all will be forgiven, well not with me or you. F-him.
I never expected that,
In fact I immediately posted warnings that the GOP will use those as a smoke screen because they figure they can just cry Benghazi or IRS and all will be forgiven,
That is Grahamnesty and McCain's favorite trick and it worked in 2010 for McCain.
They will all roll over. they always do on the big issues.
“This guy is so wobbly it’s disgusting...He doesn’t belong in the Senate. “
No, just another Mormon doing his church’s bidding. Mormonism is the second largest religion in Mexico. Wouldn’t want to piss of the First Presidency by making it harder for those “converts” to come to America. But “It’s What the Lord Wants Us To Do,” and that trumps this nation’s laws. But funny thing, it’s exactly what the Catholics are doing too.
so he is well named AND following in McShames footsteps
This one is a huge one.
I think I would rather face a known enemy than have one at my back. One I thought was my friend.
I voted for Flake in November and now less than 6 months in office he is more McCain than Kyle.
If I had known then what I know now, I would have voted for the Democrat.
Rubio will NEVER get any conservative support after this, he may as well change parties. He is a traitor to conservatives and the Tea Party that elected him. He is scum and he can NEVER redeem himself ever.
“I voted for Flake in November...”
As did I. I will not vote for him again.
Rubio is out there bald faced lying about this bill and he doesn’t care if we see it, he figures he can just cry Benghazi or IRS and all will be forgiven, well not with me or you.
A big reason the dims are doing amnesty now is to demoralize the GOP base. Zuckerburg is a huge kenyan butt licker and is paying for those Rubio radio ads. It’s psywar and these dipstick beltway GOP types are too vain to figure it out.
The bill is bad enough on it’s merits. But even worse is Rubio’s willful misrepresentations of what is in it speaks greatly to his integrity or lack there of. He needs to pay for this assault on the rights of American citizens.
Its a win-win for Dems.
Unbelievable of how they and Lindsey are working with Schumer.
I was being sarcastic and mocking the brain donors convinced that the GOP can do no wrong.
The Rubio commercial says illegals will come out of the shadows, pay a fine, and give up government benefits for a certain number of years...
We may often disagree, but not this time.
This guy and McCain are just truly bizarre. Sheriff Joe and Governor Brewer are doing everything they can to round up the illegals and keep them out. Flake and McCain are doing everything they can to bring them in and bankrupt their state.
If I were Sheriff Joe I would arrest both of them the minute they stepped off the airplane, put them in pink coveralls and send them off to one of his compounds. Charge them with lying about their true identity by attempting to disguise themselves as Conservatives.
If Rubio had just worked on the bill and then withrawn his support of a bad bill he may have been redeemable in time. However, his in your face misrepresentations PR campaign seals my opinion of him as a carpetbagging dirtbag. There is nothing to salvage at this point.
I agree. But, I'm beginning to think it doesn't matter...there must be some BIG$$$ being offered to these traitors. Enough to make the wishes of their constituents and countrymen irrelevant.
Can Flake be recalled?
I am with you.
Its one thing to be misguided and take a position I disagree with, but he was outright lying to sell this Democrat bill to us.
They can lie to Dems all they want but lying to me writes me off them.
The RINOs plan is to slip this lib crap to Obama under the cover of yelling Benghazi and IRS to keep GOP/conservative voters distracted. Grahamnesty and McCain have made careers of this scam.
Obama will still get all the credit after he signs it(Hispanics) , not the GOP, but until its passed he will make sure he looks uninvolved, and Schumer and Durbin will give the RINOs meaningless symbolic victories like on the Dem LBGT amendment to the amnesty bill today.
Schumer called it a ‘pass’ to THEIR GOP allies.
You are watching a con that is being fully planned and executed.
The greatest human to ever grace the earth ;)
LOL, you always make me laugh
Well the greatest aside from me of course ;)
He learned from McLame
There are about 1 to 3 good Senators
They must be blackmailed. Somebody has got to have photos of him with little boys somewhere, in exchange for votes to ruin this (once) great country. :-(
They must be in the process of being blackmailed. (Syntax correction).
Both will be re-elected, mark my words.
We saw this coming after both 2008 AND 2012, tried to warn and got criticized as ‘purists’ for it....
Wonder if they STILL feel the same about us ‘purists’..
BIG oops.. meant BEFORE 2008 and 2012 ...
