A huge victory for GOP’s “whites-only” coalition
Immigration reform's failure didn't just sink Rubio's political ambitions, it sank the idea of a multicultural GOP

Now and again, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., must ask himself whether the GOP’s promiscuous flirtation with comprehensive immigration reform was part of an elaborate plan to trick him into sabotaging his own chances of winning the GOP presidential nomination in 2016.

After last year’s election, top GOP leaders including the speaker of the House and the chairman of the Republican National Committee were crystal clear that the party’s big adjustment would be to broaden its appeal to Latino voters by embracing immigration reform. Rubio took them at their word, and as part of an implicit quid pro quo offered to make himself the face of the party’s new commitment. He would lend the effort his ethnic heritage and conservative bona fides. In return, they wouldn’t hang him out to dry. He’d help them neutralize immigration reform as a flashpoint issue on the right, they’d give him a legacy issue lasting enough to carry him to the presidency.

That oversimplifies things a bit, but it underscores the fact that Rubio’s incentives were shaped in part by a belief that the party’s interest in the project wasn’t fleeting or feigned.
But shortly after Rubio helped marshal a comprehensive, bipartisan bill through the Senate, John Boehner effectively handed the entire House agenda to the Tea Party, and in so doing torpedoed the reform consensus, including the Senate’s legislation, altogether.

Suddenly Rubio’s reputation as a redemptive leader was overtaken by something much less flattering — a turncoat who tried to swindle the GOP into supporting amnesty for self-interested reasons. The damage to Rubio’s standing on the right was so severe, you’d think Boehner was working in cahoots with Ted Cruz to neuter the Texas senator’s competition, except — well, we know that’s not true.

The irony is that Boehner remains the only person in all of Washington with both the power and the desire to clean up his own mess. He still says immigration reform is a key Republican priority. And if he put Rubio’s bill, or another, similar bill, on the House floor it would probably pass with the help of overwhelming Democratic support.

CONtinued:

But Boehner’s overcommitted himself. He can’t do that without violating his commitment to block any immigration bills that don’t enjoy the support of a majority of House Republicans. So Rubio’s best-laid plans are dead. This weekend, in a testament to his passage through the stages of grief, he threw his support to House GOP leaders, who want to pass piecemeal immigration bills, then limit any House-Senate negotiations to the terms of those bills. That means no pathway to citizenship, and it probably means no reforms of any kind.
Rubio, of course, blames all of this on President Obama.

My colleague Joan Walsh has written more on Rubio’s decision vis-à-vis Rubio’s own ambitions and his ongoing effort to rehabilitate his reputation on the right.

I want to explore what his latest move means for Boehner and the party at large.

Any time momentum is building for anything in the House, it’s worth asking if it’s pointed anywhere other than the abyss of Republican incompetence.

Can Boehner pass more than one or two draconian, enforcement-oriented immigration bills without help from Democrats? Will Democrats help him pass less controversial piecemeal bills if Republicans are truly foreclosing on comprehensive reform?
Now that immigration reform is in Boehner’s hands, it’s easy to imagine him and his conference flubbing even the modest task of passing a conservative position. Does Boehner really want the GOP’s answer to the Senate’s bill, including its pathway to citizenship, to be a narrow plan to militarize the border? Can he he even get that through the House? What affirmative steps can he take to distinguish the party’s position on immigration from Mitt Romney’s call for incentivizing immigrants to self-deport?

If Boehner can’t make any progress on his own, conservative reform advocates will have one last opportunity to press him to partner with Democrats, even if it means abandoning the Hastert rule yet again.

But this is a highly optimistic scenario. The conservative reformers I spoke with on Monday don’t think that’s what’s happening. At this point, they see it as a question of whether Democrats will sign on to help Republicans pass something truly marginal or whether nothing will pass at all.

The result in either case will be the consequence of Boehner’s decision to let conservative hard-liners kill comprehensive reform. Some of these members are motivated more by spite than by the sum of their concern for the national welfare, the interests of their constituents, and their own partisan allegiances. Others oppose reform more earnestly. But together they comprise a faction that’s pulling the Republican Party in a whites-only direction. Rubio’s latest move suggests they’ve won the tug of war.

Big Government? The Government Is Smaller Than It Was 47 Years Ago

Big government? Bloated government? Out of control government that must be reigned in? According to the New York Times the recent jobs report shows that, even while the U.S. population has increased greatly in the past 47 years, the size of government today is smaller than it has been since 1966. The report includes not just the federal government, but state and local government as well.
“Big government” is less than half the size today, than it was 47 years ago.

In August of 1966 the U.S. government employed 2,721,000 people. The newest jobs report, released in early September of this year, shows that our ’big government’ now employs 2,723,000 people. That is just 2,000 more jobs in government today than we had 47 years ago.

A big government is the only entity that is strong enough to take on the kind of massive corruption we see in the private sector. From Wall Street and too big to fail banks to the fossil fuel industry and abusive employers like Walmart, without government there’s nothing standing in the way of these very big, very rich members of the private sector.

If big government is destroyed, there will be no-one to sue when bankers illegally foreclose on your home. Heck, there’ll be no place to sue, since the Justice system itself is a part of the government. There’ll no-one to regulate, inspect, enforce or protect the average citizen from a wide range of evils, from contaminated food to environmental destruction.

When the private sector is bigger than the government, that’s called a Fascist state. Make no mistake that is what the republicans and the Tea Partiers are going for. Either we strengthen government now, or we hand over control of the country to the private sector. Lest we forget, it’s the people behind the effort to slash government are those same members of the private sector that caused the 2008 economic collapse.

They’re the same members of the private sector that illegally repossessed millions of homes prior to 2008. They’re the same guys that consistently fight to eliminate the rights of working people.

They’re same people that dump millions of gallons of oil into our lakes, rivers and oceans and never want to pay to clean up their mess. They’re the same members of the private sector that are regularly brought up on charges of corruption, by who? Oh yeah, by the big government.

Politicians Need to Be Honest With Older Voters

MARTIN FROST: Senior citizens generally turn out in higher percentages than other groups in society. They do this for a variety of reasons:(1) they have more time to follow politics because they aren’t working and their children are grown and (2) they have more at stake in terms of federal program benefits than many others.

Because of their higher turnout ratios politicians pay close attention to the views of seniors.

FULL Story

Cruz: Well, I will say that it is an incredible blessing to be the child of an immigrant. To be the child of someone like my father who fled oppression and came here with nothing. And one of the real benefits of that is you appreciate how precious and fragile is the freedom we have here. My father has seen what happens when-

Ramos: And it is a terrible dictatorship in Cuba. But is it fair to compare it with the United States? I mean is President Barack Obama a dictator from your point of view?

Cruz: Well the point he made- look obviously there are enormous differences between President Obama and Fidel Castro.

Ramos:-we have freedom of the press, we have democracy, political parties-

Cruz: Absolutely, but his point was he was focusing on a statement President Obama made at the State of the Union where if he said

if Congress doesn't act to enact his agenda that he will do it anyway on his own. And one of the things I am very concerned about is the explosion of power in the federal government.

We've got the NSA seizing our cell phone records, our emails, and we have seen this president expand presidential power in a way that is contrary to the Constitution.

Ramos: You think President Obama has been abusing his power?

Cruz: I think he has absolutely been abusing his power and when you have a president who says "regardless of whether Congress acts I'm going to force my agenda on the American people," that's wrong, that's not consistent with our constitutional protections.
