Gowdy: ‘The Senate bill is not going to pass the House’
Washington Free Beacon ^ | June 30, 2013 | BY: Ellison Barber

Posted on 06/30/2013 1:33:25 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Full title: Sunday Show Roundup: Gang of Eight Optimistic Gowdy: ‘The Senate bill is not going to pass the House’

Sponsors of the “Gang of Eight” Immigration Bill expressed confidence that their legislation can pass the House of Representatives, despite the challenges it will face.

“I believe that by the end of this year, the House will pass the Senate bill,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Fox News Sunday. “I know that’s not what they think now and I know they’ll say oh no, that’s not what’s going to happen, but I think it will.”

Schumer cited support of groups, such as the Catholic Church and the business community, who “don’t typically side with Democrats.” Schumer’s comments came during an appearance on Fox News Sunday.

Sen. John McCain (R., Az.) joined Schumer in arguing the bill would pass.

~~snip~~

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) told FOX News Sunday, “I’m more interested in doing it right than on Senator Schumer’s schedule.”

“The Senate bill is not going to pass the House. It’s not going to pass for a myriad of reasons.” Gowdy reiterated, “The issue is not the broad principles of the immigration reform and humanity and respect for the rule of law. Virtually everyone agrees on the broad principles, where we get ourselves into a little bit of a difference of opinions are the details.”

“Everyone agrees on border security for instance, but I can not sell, in South Carolina, a border security plan where the security comes after the legalization … nor would I try to sell any of those plans,” Gowdy noted.

Schumer can drag out the Catholic Church to support the amnesty bill, but doesn’t seem to bring it up in the ObamaCare abortion battle.

No bill should be passed.

This needs to be killed before it makes it to conference.

“The issue is not the broad principles of the immigration reform and humanity and respect for the rule of law. Virtually everyone agrees on the broad principles, where we get ourselves into a little bit of a difference of opinions are the details.”

We all agree on the broad principles? For example "no amnesty" is a broad principle. Is Gowdy saying that everybody thinks there should be amnesty?

“Everyone agrees on border security for instance, but I can not sell, in South Carolina, a border security plan where the security comes after the legalization … nor would I try to sell any of those plans,” Gowdy noted.

Gowdy seems to be saying that he will sell amnesty after so-called "border security".

I was horrible disappointed with Ryan’s debate with that cartoonish Biden. Maybe he threw the debate - not that it would have mattered.

Hard to imagine he was blackmailed - he seems like Mr Clean.

I saw those interviews...wanted to punch McCain. The House has the right idea.. Create narrow-focused pieces of legislation. First up, border security. enough of these large, unwieldy, “comprehensive” bills. Not only do they NOT solve the problem, they are pork-laden with all kinds of crap by the time they see a vote...and no time to read them. That’s the Dem playbook.

Doesn’t matter.

What DOES matter is the bill that results from the Conference Committee. That committee will likely have more liberal appointees. That is the bill to watch for. Members from both Chambers can hide their dirty stuff deep inside it.

Poor Marco. He didn’t even get to take a winning lap on the Sunday morning news talkie programs. McCain and Schumer did, however.

Rubio will find that the Gang no longer needs him. That ‘useful’ tool has passed his expiration date.

Pelosi said. “I believe that the members of Congress … will do what is right for our country, and it certainly right for Republicans if they ever want to win a presidential race.”

My goodness, another Dim looking out for the best interest of Republicans and their future presidential prospects. I just never realized so many Dims cared about the future success of Republicans in presidential races.

Schumer just lies when he says all those people support it. No one challenges him or asks him where he gets his info. Wouldn’t surprise me if the Catholics supported it. They are a liberal group.

The Catholic Church has been running interference for the Democratic Party since, at least, my seminary days 45 years ago. The Catholic Church has finally reaped what it sowed by Democrats ramming gay marriage and abortion down our throats. The Church is feeling the utter contempt of Obama and Company the same way the black community has all these years.

The Democratic Party has destroyed the black subculture in this country. Yet blacks still flock to them nine times out of every ten.

The Conference of Catholic Bishops is a lame set of leaders for our Church. They accepted that fat drunken serial killing enabling blob from Massachusetts and even gave him a Catholic send off.

To this day they can't summon the backbone to ex-communicate Pelosi and Biden. Pretty lame outfit, IMHO.

You can be stuff will be released on Gowdy like it was released on Romney. Not only will Gowdy be targeted bur any Republican that has caused the Democrats problems. Look for stuff to come out on Cruz also. 2012 was, such as it was, the last free election that will be held in the United States. From this point on, Any Republican that makes it into ogffice will have tactic Democrat approval. Those the Democrats do not approved will be destroyed by information on them made available to the Democrat controlled media.

Catholics? They are AGAINST abortion and same-sex marriage. Sure they believe in feeding the poor, (Do you have any idea how many people Catholic Charities feed each year?) but they don’t approve of letting cut throats, murderers and rapists cross our borders.

This is the bill that the House should vote on; short and sweet, 1)secure the border 2)round up all the law-breakers(those who came here illegally) and send them back to where they came from.

“No bill should be passed.

This needs to be killed before it makes it to conference.”

That is the KEY POINT. Very true:

Only chance to stop the Amnesty bill is for the House not to consider any immigration related bill at all.

Michelle Bachman explained it. ANY House bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.

Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway.

Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives won’t vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.

Tom Tancredo echos what Michelle Bachmann said.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3036438/posts

call congress . no bill at all from the House

NO NO NO. Any bill at all will be merged with the Senate Amnesty bill. the House should just ignore the Senate bill. the House doesn’t have to pass any bill at all . but Boner is a traitor too . Boner could ignore the bill. will he? put a fire under the creep.

you are all falling for this “border security, fence” bait and switch.

I saw Gowdy go over and hug and console Gutierrez after some tearful whining on the floor. Trey is great, but almost all the house has been persuaded that they will never win another eletion if they don't placate the amnesty pimps.

There is nothing we can do now McCain lied saying an overwhelming majority of the people calling and writing want comprehensive immigration reform.

Wow. Interesting points about Congressman Trey Gowdy's views on immigration, at the link you provided. I hadn't seen/read any of his immigration/amnesty views, before now.

Gowdy heads the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, so we need to keep a sharp eye and lots of pressure on him, on this.
