Boehner warns House GOP will be weaker without immigration reform
The Hill ^ | 7/10/13 | Russell Berman, Molly K. Hooper and Erik Wasson

Posted on 07/10/2013 4:05:56 PM PDT by jimbo123

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) urged their House Republican colleagues to pass immigration reform legislation in a closed-door meeting Wednesday, with the Speaker arguing his conference would be “in a much weaker position” if it failed to act.

A divided House Republican conference met for more than two hours in the basement of the Capitol to begin hashing out a response to the sweeping immigration bill the Senate passed last month.

-snip-

He (Issa) said the House would deal with the 11 million illegal immigrants, but that the conference viewed them not as a uniform block, but in three distinct categories: “Those who should remain, those who should not remain, and those who would fall within guest workers or other programs.”

The phone calls are working. But the GOP's Repackaged Dream Act sham for providing amnesty to the "deserving" is still 100% unacceptable. Call your REP and tell them No Lipstick on the Dream Act Pig!

How the frig can Boehner's House conference be "weaker" when it is the majority and by a fairly large margin??? That makes NO sense!

Gawd this guy is such a weakling...

The party will be much weaker because they will drive away many supporters. Independents, conservative, democrats and libertarians. Boehner is lying to us; he wants this passed. I recall him saying the House must not give Obama the bailout money. We know what happened.

Here is how you deal with 11(20?) million illegal aliens: Pass a law fining employers $5000 for each illegal alien they hire and ENFORCE IT! The illegals will deport themselves.

Whatever Boehner’s mental state or condition he just can’t recognize the two sides of a coin especially the one that says the GOP is down the tubes if it gives the USA to illegal immigrants of any kind.

Boehner warns “House GOP is weaker because of my whiney azz spineless lack of leadership.” There I fixed it.

Boehner has a drinking problem. He also has a limp spaghetti spine; both are common knowledge on the hill.

Fix legal immigration first, and illegal immigration won’t be a problem.

I realize this is from "The Hill", but the article just made me want to throw up.

If Boehner believes what is quoted, if he has some 500 page, several year old, being drafted piece of garbage bill (by staffers) about "comprehensive immigration reform" he's going to destroy his majority, his party AND his country.

Then why didn’t they dump him in Jan when they had the chance? I can only imagine they don’t give a sh** and it’s all about ‘getting along’ because they all drink with him.

I’d rather see him shipped back to Ohio, covered with tar and feathers. And it’s OK with me if Toomey comes back to Pennsyltucky in the same condition.

Another reason for term limits. These politicians are too far removed from their constituents and too close to the big money and power offered to them on a daily basis.

Passing anything regarding amnesty will weaken the GOP. I’ve had it with them.

Amnesty will destroy the GOP. For two totally separate reasons, neither of which is disputable.

‘I realize this is from “The Hill”...’

Yeah, and they’re at the fore of the nedia assault on conservatives.

RINOs have adopted an “amnesty or nothing” attitude. If the GOP establishment needs an immigration bill so bad then all they have to do is put pressure on the RINOs to drop that “amnesty or nothing” stance. ‘Party discipline’ isn’t just for conservatives.

Any District meetings over the August recess should be as hot as possible. There should be no bill at all. Any bill will be used as a vehicle for amnesty.

They’re going to play the “compassionate conservative” card to try to pass Amnesty under the disguise of a “new and improved” Dream Act. For the children...

Why don’t they just tell Odumbo No, and then wait for a Conservative Republican President to start a new bill that will ACTUALLY address the boarder first; and then secondly AFTER that fact fix a solution for the eventual legalization; once the boarder IS secure..?

The other way is to cut off, 100%, ALL gov bennies from free school to free emergency rooms to FS and anything else. And for the rest of the takers, they have to show valid ID for everything.

Of course, we need to cut off Uncle free stuff for everyone, legal or not. Welfare in all its manifestations is killing the country not just from pi**ing away money (that doesn’t even exist) to making dependent slavish fools out of millions of people. And attracting parasites.

You can’t do that unless you provide tools to figure out who’s legal, and allow employers to require extra documentation if they think someone’s illegal. Right now, they can’t fire someone if their e-verify result indicate fraud, so how can they be held responsible?

Pass any of this garbage Boner and you’ll see how much weaker you are.
