Budget Deal May Clear Way for Amnesty Vote in 2014

by Tony Lee 10 Dec 2013, 7:11 PM PDT

The budget deal that Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced on Tuesday may pave the way for a vote on comprehensive immigration reform in the first months of the 2014 Congress.

Last week, The Hill reported that amnesty advocates and big-business and high-tech lobbyists who want comprehensive immigration reform wanted nothing more than a budget deal that would prevent another government shutdown. Such a budget deal would pave the way for legislation that the Congressional Budget Office predicts will lower the wages of working-class Americans.

"Few in Washington want to see House and Senate negotiators strike a budget deal more than advocates for immigration reform," The Hill wrote. "An agreement would clear the legislative calendar in the New Year, and combined with an expected push from President Obama in his State of the Union address, immigration reform could have the moment its advocates have been waiting for."

Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman, has been a strong Republican advocate for comprehensive immigration reform. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), who has said his "Republican friends" have told him they want comprehensive immigration reform in everything but name only, said Ryan was his "ally" in his quest for amnesty. Ryan also was one of the first lawmakers to suggest that House Republicans could pass immigration reform through piecemeal bills.

As Breitbart News reported, when the House Republican leadership said they would not go to conference on the exact Senate bill, Ryan did not even join them in making such a pronouncement. House Republicans have always left the door open to go to conference on various piecemeal bills, though.

President Barack Obama has indicated he would be okay with comprehensive immigration reform being broken up into pieces so long as all of the pieces -- including the pathway to citizenship provision -- are passed.

This is a good thing for staunchly moderate Republicans.  It makes me happier about the pause in sequester.
I am so proud that former VP candidate Ryan is from WI.  And Walker.  And Prebius.  And Johnson.  The GOP hit the jackpot here.

Ryan is a traitor both to his country and to Conservatism.  He negotiated a deal filled with tax increases and miniscule budget cuts in an attempt to annihilate the rule of law in providing amnesty to millions of criminal invaders.

Ryan is a pathetic dolt who lost a debate with that bastion of brilliance, Joe Biden.  Yet, he is a leader of the Republican Party.  Obama should be laughing hysterically.  What a disgusting time to be a Republican.

Of course you like someone who is selling out this country and ensuring its complete and total destruction.

The sole purpose of the Republican Party is to serve as an ineffective alternative to the Democrat Party.

In general I have been against third parties since Ross Perot (who I voted for his first time around)... however, the GOP and the Democrats having no opposition as both parties are ensconced in the arms of K-Street is sorely in need of some competition... which makes me re-think the entire third party thingy.

It's probably easier for the Tea Party to take-over the GOP than for a 3rd-Party to become strong enough to challenge the Rats.  Course, they would be subject to the same corrupting influence that the current GOP 'leadership' has succumbed to and that the Rats succumbed to long ago.

You never know... it may be along the lines of, "An offer they can't refuse."

Literally...



Dialogue from SHOOTER (2007):

Senator Charles F. Meachum: You got any plans after this? You have a rather unique skill set. I'd be interested in offering you a job.

Bob Lee Swagger: Work? For you?

Senator Charles F. Meachum: It's not really as bad as it seems. It's all gonna be done in any case. You might as well be on the side that gets you well paid for your efforts.

Nick Memphis: And what side are you on?

Senator Charles F. Meachum: There are no sides. There's no Sunnis and Shiites. There's no Democrats and Republicans.  There's only HAVES and HAVE-NOTS.

Senator Charles F. Meachum: This is a country, where the Secretary of Defense can go on T.V., and tell the American public, oh, that "This is about freedom! It's not about oil!" And nobody questions him, cuz they don't wanna hear the answer, because it's a lie!  There are only so many places at the table, Gunnie.  Now, are you on the INSIDE, or are you on the OUT?
