We can pass the Gang of Eight bill — if Boehner will bring it to the floor (HE CAVED) ???
Hot Air ^ | July 8,2013 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Chad Pergram ✔ @ChadPergram

Boehner: We have a broken #immigration system..We can't turn a blind eye and think it will go away. It's time for Congress to act. 4:48 PM - 8 Jul 2013

trolling from pro-amnesty forces via Greg Sargent. Although, is it really trolling if it’s true? I don’t doubt for a second that if Boehner allowed an up-or-down vote on the Senate bill, there’d be 20-30 Republicans willing to go all-in on amnesty with the entire Democratic caucus. The one and only thing stopping this from passing is John Boehner’s solemn promise that he won’t allow a vote on anything that doesn’t already have the support of a majority of the GOP majority.

You trust an old Hill hand like him to stand firm on that promise with the entire GOP establishment, virtually to a man, bleating for the party to pass immigration reform as soon as possible, don’t you?

If there is a vote on comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship in the House, it will pass with a bipartisan majority. If all but a handful of the House Democrats vote yes, and at least 20 Republicans from the list below come along, reform can easily clear the 218 necessary to pass the lower chamber. Looking at the list of 99 House Republicans below, it’s clear that capturing those 20 or so Republican votes is well within reach. Our target list includes several different groups of Republicans, such as:

* Republicans with growing numbers of Latino and Asian constituents.

* Republicans who understand the need for the Party to tackle immigration reform for its own future.

This would be the ultimate gesture of CONTEMPT towards most of the electorate.

If Boehner folds, when he clearly doesn't have to, my attitude towards the US government will undergo a dramatic shift.

And I have no use for it as it is.

We have a broken immigration system.

Who broke it?

Washington politicians -- by not enforcing the border security.

Why should we believe they will do any different under a new bill?

We don't! A new bill will turn out to be as much of a farce as the previous comprehensive immigration bills that were supposed to resolve border issues, except it will add a bunch of hidden fees, provisions, regulations, etc., many of which have nothing to do with resolving the illegal immigration situation.

It’s not called “caving” in Boehner’s case; it’s called collusion.

Some folks think this is about fixing a broken system.

It is not.

We have laws on the books today, that if enforced would have kept our nation from being over-run. They were not enforced.

What assurance or better yet proof do we have that new laws will be enforced? None. Nothing. Nada!

New laws, mean nothing. We can dismiss them.

The only thing new, is facilitating instant legalization, and resultant amnesty.

That is all this is about, Amnesty.

These days I refer to it as CrAmnesty!

They’re going to cram this amnesty down our throats, no matter what, even if 316 million of us stand up and say no.

Get used to it folks.

CRAMNESTY YOU citizens!

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT IT IS TIME FOR JONNIE - START ENFORCING THE LAW BEFORE WE DESCEND ON THE DISTRICT BY THE MILLIONS.

We sent you and your GOP-e there to stop Zero and that means STOP HIM FROM IGNORING CURRENT LAWS ON THE BOOKS - Stop putting the illegal aliens at the head of your priority line and start doing what AMERICAN CITIZENS sent you there to do - you represent US not illegal aliens.
NO NEW BILLS - NONE, NADA, ZERO.

Oh and by the way start DEFUNDING EPA and OBAMACARE.

I believe he WOULDN’T DARE try to pass that horrible bill, if only to save his own political skin.

His career would be destroyed, over, finished, done ... if he fooled around with that bill.

Now then, if he has a better approach, he is always free to propose it (this being what he’s paid to do, after all).

Hi. Gather you are new to America.

Willard the RAT Romney, after attacking Gov. Palin
mercilessly in 2008, attacked every conservative
four years later, and then gave up,
BECAUSE ROMNEY DID NOT EVEN WANT TO RUN.

BTW, Willard is not a conservative at all,
since he FIRST imposed RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE
and gay marriage.

It isn't at all clear they've succeeded, or will succeed.

The people they're up against are ruthless to the extreme. Remember President Sadat, and Ayman al-Zawahri bellowing abuse and defiance from the defendants' cage at their trial? Those guys are animals. Hell, they raped a female CBS reporter on-air during Cairo primetime. We still owe those fuzzy bastards a MOAB right in the middle of one of their rallies.

IF the house passes its own immigration bill, it will be marked up in committee as an amnesty bill and there will be no further obstacles to its passage. It gets a straight up or down vote in both the House and Senate.

Hello Dio. Fairly new to the U.S. Third generation Kraut. I think maybe I should have added a sarcasm tag. No Republican here!! Love Cruz,and Palin. Just making fun of the usuall Pom-Pom waving Republicans that blame Conservatives for electing Barry. I know what to expect from a CommiCrat,but electing a Rep. Whom runs as a conservative, and RULES as a CommieCrat is the Worse of the 2.

The Egyptians managed because they got 14 million of their citizens to march in the streets demanding change. That’s about 1/6th of their population.
The corresponding number here would be about 50 million. That will only happen in our dreams.

If Boehner allows this to pass through the House, it will be sliced and diced in conference and come back a full-fledged amnesty bill.
