Rubio thinks immigration bill in good
shape; Graham says a GOP block
would add to party’s ´death spiral´

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:zephyrgirl, 6/16/2013 9:46:38 PM

The top Republican crafting the Senate’s sweeping immigration-reform legislation acknowledged Sunday the bill still has flaws, while a fellow GOP senator said their party blocking its passage will only add to their “demographic death spiral.” Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants and potential 2016 presidential candidate, said roughly 95 percent of the bill is in “perfect shape” and that the full chamber debates are off to a good start. However, he expressed concerns about whether the legislation ensures adequate border security and said Americans have

Comments:
No wonder Dems call Republicans "the stupid party." Who will these idiots blame after they´ve rammed through amnesty and are shocked to discover it didn´t gain them a single vote?

And we should believe Gramnesty why??

Pass it in pieces if you must pass something. Start with border security! Nothing else to occur until ALL border state governors agree that our borders are secure. Do not trust anything to ´big sis´ or any other federal buereaucrat or syncophant, only to ALL border state governors.

BTW, if the NSA can keep track of all of us, why cannot they identify the illegals in our midst?

I have to wonder where they get the idea that this is going to bring Republican votes. Rubio has destroyed himself. I don´t care what the ´polls´ say. Wait until we have another 11 million people living off the taxpayer. Wait until we are waiting in line to see the Doctor and 30 or 40 illegal Mexicans who got handed amnesty are in line in front of us getting ´free´ medical care. How popular will Rubio and that worthless POS Graham be then? Welcome to decades of liberal rule. I won´t live long enough to see another Republican President.

So what you are saying is that if you don´t sell out the American people, there will be no chance of anything but Democrats winning and the result will be a sell out of the American people.

Go for it, push it through RINOS. You want the end of America as we know it so your buddies can get cheap labor.

Go and sell out the middle class. But have the guts to at least admit what you are doing and don´t try to sell us that its the right thing to do.

By letting people stay with a slap on the hand is amnesty. You will let people here illegally become legal.

THEY WILL NOT PAY TAXES. Do you get that? They won´t.

So, you let more poor Mexicans in, they vote democrat anyways.

But don´t worry, as Senor Bush says, Si, se puede! They are better workers and love their families more than we do.

So we will be better off.

Want to know what America will look like 20 years from now? Exactly like Mexico. No middle class.

I can´t imagine why the republicans think they will get any Hispanic votes even if a bill passes. The democ rats and Zero will get all the credit, leaving nothing for republicans anyway. And if voting against the bill loses the one or two Hispanic votes they might get who cares? I doubt if even the lofo voters care diddly squat about the whole immigration thing now, but when there is an influx of Mexicans taking jobs and taking up space in emergency room lines and when taxes go up, the vast majority of genuine Americans will thank the republicans for keeping illegals out.

More and more I am convinced that the GOP, like the RATS care nothing for the rule of law. I´m beginning to think that they were silent on the IRS scandal until after 2012, so to minimize the influence of the Tea Party movement. Well folks, it"s time to put the final nail in the coffin of the GOP and form a new party with Ted Cruz et al.

Most current Hispanic voters who vote for Democrats do that because of liberal Democrat stances on granting them what they believe will be "free" health care and a big expansion in social welfare benefits and services.

Those Hispanics are not about to start voting for Republicans because the Republicans abandoned their principles and facilitated a big liberal Democrat written amnesty and path to citizenship, that is going to pump almost immediately, up to 20 million legalized aliens into the legal US job market where they will have the right to compete against American workers, including Hispanic-American workers, for almost every scarce job out there.

In the years ahead the liberal Democrat ethnic and immigrant rights groups will be paid out of the amnesty bill to essentially chaperone those millions of legalized aliens through a liberal Democrat created path to citizenship process designed to eventually register as many of them as possible to vote for the Democrats.

The passage of that amnesty bill is going to enrage a good portion of the current conservative Republican voter base that the Republicans direly need at election time. When those voters fail to turn out, the Republicans who pushed the liberal Democrat amnesty are also going to find out that they also pushed their party to long-term political suicide.

What idiots these Senators are. The GOP has never gotten the Hispanic vote, and dramatically increasing the number of Hispanics will only make things worse.

The GOP ought to be thinking instead about the "death spiral" it puts itself in every time it alienates the GOP base. Apparently the losses due to no-shows in 2008 and 2012 were not instructive enough.

If Rubio had any sense, he would have demanded that the United States adopt Mexican laws on immigration. That action at least would have solved many problems and started the rush of illegals running back to Mexico and points beyond.

The first step would have been to close the legal borders until Mexico controls their borders. Next step, foreigners can´t buy land here, only lease it for 99 years. That is if they have visa´s and are here legally. Foreigners who are allowed over the border, must have car insurance. They require that of us, so what´s the problem. Also block all money from being sent to Mexico and beyond without proof of legal citizenship or a legal VISA.

Illegal immigrants don´t pay their way as liberals would have us believe. It costs $8,600 a year to educate a child in California and they usually have more than two children. Any income they do earn is usually in the underground economy so they don´t pay taxes on that money. They also get free medical and many are on the dole. I could go on, but why bother with people like these Senators supporting criminals while you pay their bills.

Please tell me why we should legalize people who cheat, are criminals and don´t pay their own way. They must be deported. If they pass this bill, I will never vote for GOP candidates again.

If lawmakers in Springfield thought they maneuvered beyond the treacherous topic of pension reform with their December votes to begin rescuing the state´s floundering pension system, they thought wrong. Chicago, with its enormously underfunded pension plans, is next in line. Three years into his mayoral term — after campaigning on a promise to fix pensions — Rahm Emanuel finally is ready to file legislation that would reduce the city´s dangerously unfunded pension liabilities for municipal workers and laborers. Emanuel says he has a deal with those employees´ unions that would bring two of the city´s four funds for retirees closer

Election Day is almost nine months off. But right now Republicans seem almost certain to hold the House of Representatives and are likely to take the Senate. Which raises the inevitable question: How might the GOP seize defeat from the jaws of victory? Two occasions stand out, two obvious obstacles ahead that could lead to disastrous Republican stumbles, two pitfalls on the path to a happy GOP Election Day. Republicans are pretty good at falling into such pits. One is the increase in the debt limit, which Congress will have to deal with in the next month or two. The other

Because unlike many media scandals that come and go after a 24 hour news cycle, I believe the Duck Dynasty controversy will have legs. Not only will the controversy linger, it might reignite the culture war that has traditionally hurt Democrats, especially

Amendment 66, education tax has failed

DENVER - Amendment 66, the K-12 education funding measure, has failed in Colorado. Even in Democratic strongholds of Boulder and Denver counties, the measure was failing or barely even. Amendment 66 constitutionally and statutorily would alter Colorado law to change how the state funds education. Firstly, it raises the state individual income tax rate from 4.63 percent to 5 percent on the first $75,000 of taxable income. That is equivalent to $472.5 if you earn exactly $75,000 in taxable income per year. If you earn more, any income beyond the $75,000 is taxed at a rate of 5.9 percent.

Thousands of Californians are discovering what Obamacare will cost them — and many don´t like what they see. These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years. Although recent criticism of the healthcare law has focused on website glitches and early enrollment snags, experts say sharp price increases for individual policies have the greatest potential to erode public support for President Obama´s

Kelly Ayotte is no stranger to the difficult balancing act of politics. In the 2010 New Hampshire Senate primary, the Republican state attorney general trumpeted an endorsement from Sarah Palin to help her fend off a tough GOP challenger, who had attempted to outflank her on the right. Then Ayotte tracked closely enough to the center to blow out her Democratic opponent, U.S. Rep. Paul Hodes, by 23 percentage points in the general election. (In the process, she won all 10 of the state’s counties.) Once she arrived in Washington, it wasn’t long before Ayotte began being mentioned as a

Immigration overhaul legislation has been dormant in the House for months, but a few Republicans are working behind the scenes to advance it at a time the Capitol is immersed in a partisan brawl over government spending and President Barack Obama´s health care law. The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, has been discussing possible legal status for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. He´s also been working with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a fellow Virginia Republican, on a bill offering citizenship to immigrants brought illegally

The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
