Time for GOP to Listen to
the American People

Town Hall, by Jeff Crouere

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 1/18/2014 6:14:57 PM

It is clear that the House GOP leadership is preparing to take action on the immigration issue this year. According to reports, the “principles” of immigration reform will be introduced next week and it will include a “pathway” to citizenship for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country. The bill will reportedly also mandate improved border security, provide additional visas for foreign workers and require those immigrants seeking legalization to learn English and pay certain fees. The net effect of this legislation will be to provide “amnesty” for millions of immigrants who ignored our laws to settle in this

Comments:
The fact is that the Republican Establishment is selling immigration reform because the big business lobby has paid them to. If it was as true a crisis as they are claiming it to be, securing the boarder would be the first order of business followed by demanding current laws be enforced. Yet.....

Got Tea?

Here´s a better idea. Tell the Chamber of Commerce and all the businesses supporting this reform that THEY will be responsible for supporting all of these illegals (welfare, healthcare, education, etc.) out of their private business funds, instead of on the backs of the taxpayers.

I guarantee that immigration reform will drop off the radar so fast it will make your head spin.

What better way to insure that the GOP remains a minority party after 2014? They don´t want to actually govern or take on Obama. And we get another McCain in 2016.

What if either or both parties were to propose amnesty for bank robbers, rapists, and murderers. They won´t, because there´s no constituency for these lawbreakers vociferously parading down Main Street who vote. But other lawbreakers who have race-based (racist) or business boosters get a pass because votes are on the line? A crime is a crime. You don´t like the law? ... repeal it. Politicians who enable such unequal justice are cynical opportunists deserving of a tar-and-feathering (or maybe worse).

Of course you can count on Obama not waiving any of the rules, like fines, learning English, not committing additional crimes, etc. They are criminals, you know.

Q. Why do employers hire illegals?
A. Because legal citizens demand legal wages, benefits and treatment, and illegals only demand small cash payments.

Q. What will illegals expect once they receive amnesty?
A. All of the same rights, benefits and legal protections that other citizens demand.

Q. So what will employers do once amnesty is granted?
A. Fire the new citizens, and hire a whole new batch of illegals.

Q. So what will the new citizens do?
A. Sign up for all of the government benefits that they now qualify for.

Everyone knows that Boehner is going to pass through the amnesty bill in the house and I just heard McConnell say that he is going to put back in the filibuster and open the Senate back up to protect the minority if he becomes majority leader. Isn’t there some one else to vote for out there --- Please, there must be someone else out there in Kentucky that cares for this country other then just Rand Paul.

Start it at home. From the bottom up. Call your local Chamber of Commerce and get a list of the local businesses that are members. Tell them you want to support them. But after you get the list, tell them and their members that if amnesty passes the House you will hold the Chamber of Commerce responsible and will never again set foot in any business that belongs to the Chamber, beginning with every single business on their local list. Tell them all your friends and family feel the same way. Their only hope is to cancel their Chamber membership. Cancel it NOW. Before the vote. After is too late. Dead business walking.

The Chamber of Commerce has declared economic war against American citizens. So be it. They are anxious to put us out of work. Let´s put them out of business instead.

Illegal aliens already have a path to citizenship. Over a million foreigners take that path each and every year. The illegal aliens currently in our Nation can take that same path. We should encourage them to follow that path by deporting every illegal alien we can catch.

Have one idiot running in Texas for Senator who wants to use the military to build a border fence but wants all the illegals to have a social security card and receive benefits of without becoming legal.
Well, hells bells, no need to issue cards, they´re already receiving the benefits.
And this dodo-bird is saying he is aligned with the T.E.A. movement.
Guess he thinks with a SS # they can get subsidized obamacare, too. They don´t need obamacare.....they use the ER for free medical.

The GOP does not get very much money from sources other than Big Business and the Corporate Oligarchy. Absolutely stop giving the GOP any money, but don´t expect them to change, because they are not going to change. Even if it means Democrats rule unopposed, as they do on both the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts, the GOP must be gotten rid of before any progress can be made to restore freedom.

Twelve million illegals has been used for the past 10 years at least. It´s more like 25,000,000 or more. Once they bring in the relatives, it´ll be 100,000,000. Think about the taxpayer drain once that happens, not to mention 100,000,000 demonrat votes. This country would be saddled with communist demonrats forever.

Every time the RNC calls for a donation, I hang up on them. My dollars go directly to a candidate, be it my state or any other state. I don´t want my dollars going to a stealth demonrat.

“To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws,” Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan said Wednesday, “it’s really a question of ‘when.’” Ryan, who was making the economic case for reforming our nation’s immigration system, was speaking at a breakfast hosted by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Ryan called the nation’s immigration laws “chief” among the problems that are curbing economic growth. Noting the rate of retirement among baby boomers, Ryan said reforming the immigration system is necessary to fill future jobs. “Please know that we understand the value of immigration,” Ryan told the crowd. “We

A group of conservative House Republicans put a Medicare “doc fix” bill in mortal peril with their objections – but then acquiesced to a plan from GOP leadership to pass it without a vote. The vote was repeatedly delayed this morning as top Republicans scrambled to find the necessary votes for the legislation. Making the problem more difficult: the bill was brought to the floor under suspension of the rules, meaning it needed a 2/3 majority rather than the normal 1/2 majority. Huddling with leadership in an ornate room off the House floor, a group of GOP lawmakers who form

   

 



 
GOP Leaders Broke Their

When House Republicans penned their Pledge to America in 2010, they convinced American voters they would advance a conservative agenda if they regained control of the House that year. Four years later, what promises have they actually delivered? ObamaCare is still intact, our national debt has grown by $3 trillion, and Republicans have capitulated to Democrats on every issue from the debt ceiling to the budget. Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate have failed conservatives and have failed to keep their Pledge to America. Let’s examine how the GOP pledge has fallen flat.

Maine’s tea party governor, reared in poverty, is on a mission to reform the state’s welfare system. Gov. Paul LePage rolled out a four-proposal package on Monday that will get committee hearings in the legislature Tuesday afternoon. The reforms, which mostly tighten restrictions around the program, are part of an ongoing crusade against what LePage has described as a bloated program. “Big, expensive welfare programs riddled with fraud and abuse threaten our future,” he said in his state of the state speech last month. “Too many Mainers are dependent on government handouts. Government dependency has not — and never will— create prosperity.”

On Friday, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorsed Matt Bevin, who is challenging Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in this May´s Kentucky Republican primary. Jenny Beth Martin, President of Tea Party Patriots and its Citizen Fund Super PAC, told the Washington Times, "Senator McConnell worked with the Obama Administration to raise taxes, has voted to raise the debt ceiling ten times, and has added pork barrel projects to further his own career instead of the needs of the American people."

One of the top Republican congressional staffers on the Benghazi investigation founded a consulting firm comprised of numerous former Clinton aides and a former CIA director accused of lying to Congress about the attack, Fox News reported Monday. J. Michael Allen is the founder and managing director of Beacon Global Strategies.

Mike Rogers of Michigan and perhaps the most important panel investigating Benghazi.

Contrary to rumors that the Tea Party is in demise, if Republicans gain control of the Senate and retain control of the House after November, the Tea Party versus establishment battle may just be getting started. Statistician Nate Silver gave the GOP a 60% chance of taking back the Senate, and the Los Angeles Times noted that the Tea Party is getting ready for its next phase of promoting policies to lower the debt and mitigate or repeal Obamacare. Grassroots conservatives, having given the GOP its House majority back in 2010, felt snubbed when the establishment tried to blunt their

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

The story of the first-generation Ghanian-American student accepted by all eight Ivy league schools is wonderful, but it also stirs up the tension between black Americans and recent African immigrants — especially when you describe him as "not a typical African-American kid." That´s been the reaction to USA Today´s profile on Kwasi Enin, a Long Island high schooler who got into the nation´s most competitive schools through hard work and, according to IvyWise CEO Katherine Cohen, being African (and being male).

For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
