In 2012 the republicans were so disgusted with the way things were going that many of them stayed home and Obama got in again. In 2013 they came out in droves and sent a strong message they wanted Obamacare repealed and amnesty defunded and consequently won a majority in both the House and Senate. So what did our duly elected officials do? Why they betrayed the people who elected them and voted to fund Obamacare for another year and also amnesty.
House majority leader John Boehner proved himself such a wimp and co-hort to Obama that the people demanded their representatives oust him and replace him with someone more conservative and stronger. Again they were betrayed as he was elected majority leader once again and the world watched as Nancy Pelosi hugged him and Obama shook his hand and smiled.
So it’s business as usual in Congress and not a bit of difference in either party. Jeb Bush supports Obamacare, amnesty and same sex marriage. Both Boehner and McConnell say the issues are off the table and Obamacare and amnesty are killers for America. In fact republicans are working on a secret strategy for a broad immigration bill.
“I just got the sense that the senators are all about how little is possible,” says one republican congressman, referring to Senate GOP reminders that they need 60 votes to overcome a filibuster. The narrower the bill — some Democrats dislike Obama’s most recent “adult amnesty,” but favor the program for younger immigrants – the more likely it is to pass the Senate.
According to an article in National Review Online: Rather than discuss the next step in the executive-amnesty fight, Republicans discussed their own immigration policies. House Homeland Security Committee chairman Michael McCaul (R., Texas) outlined a “strong” border-security bill that will take clearer shape through a bottom-up drafting process, heartening conservatives frustrated with his efforts during the border crisis. House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.) talked about proceeding with legislation to tighten interior enforcement, and Republicans discussed reforming guest-worker programs and expanding high-tech-visa reforms. Taken together, the proposals could develop into a package of immigration bills that shape a broader GOP agenda, undermining the center-left coalition pushing for the comprehensive immigration bill favored by President Obama.
Of course the biggest traitor is Obama himself who is giving into the terrorists. He sees America thru different eyes than the rest of us from his upbringing in middle east countries and an atheist mother and muslim father and step father who railed against America. A recent article I saw stated it perfectly” By refusing to name the enemy – and the strict Islamic beliefs favored by millions of Muslims around the world are the enemy because they are inimical to liberty as we understand it and have enshrined it in our Constitution – Obama directly aids those Islamic supremacists who are right now today working to undermine Western civilization generally, and especially constitutional government here in America.” He thinks America is the cause of all the problems in the world. He calls our constitution “an outdated document.” He gave the Muslim Brotherhood 14 F-16 jets, 400 tanks and over a billion dollars. He has Muslim Brotherhood members in his administration and by going easy on terror attacks he shows his true colors. When our people were beheaded over in Iran he was on the golf course, he gave a three minute speech and then went back on the golf course. By not showing up in Paris after the terror attacks there he showed his true allegiance also. After the whole country left and right was up in arms over not showing and hearing flimsy excuses by Josh Ernest he decides to send Kerry over there. Kerry goes over gives Hollande a hug and brings James Taylor over there to sing’ “You’ve Got a Friend” his first big hit in the 70’s. That smacks of phony baloney plastic banannaism. Unfortunately it’s too little too late. We are now the laughing stock of the world. Thanks Obama. I guess this is what you wanted all along.
