We all know Obama has done nothing to help the working man in spite of what he claims. Stagnant wages and record unemployment have persisted throughout his presidency. Illegal immigration has even declined due to the poor state of the economy. The failure of Obamacare and the additional damage it has been inflicting on the economy and especially the working poor needs to be addressed and the Democratic Party has shown that they are not willing to read the law let alone fix it. We can only hope that those who voted for this mess will wakeup, put their prejudice aside and demand the Democrats deliver what they promised or allow those that are qualified, competent and honest to run the country. If such people actually exist in the political ranks of Washington.
58% of polled republicans agreed that the minimum wage should be raised to $9.00/hr. Unfortunately, the teahadists in the boner's flailing House run blocks for the businesses that put profits over people.

I can't name a Democrat or Republican that meets more than one. Those characteristics have been bred out of the system. Personally I do not think it is funny that not one politician from either party can meet even two, so laugh by yourself and at yourself.
Any politician that would support amnesty definitely does not fit any of the criteria.

Obama can't spend a penny without the authorization of the REPUBLICAN controlled House. They BOTH share the blame.

More whites are on welfare than all the other ethnic groups combined.

Blacks will never vote for the GOPasaurs in any significant numbers.
And 75%+ of Hispanics will vote for the Dems as well.

Btw, my people have been in America since before our country was founded.

Wrong! Percentage wise to their population numbers whites are not the largest group on welfare.

Who cares how long "your" people who ever the hell they are were here before out country was founded. It is relevant to nothing.

Wrong again, Mr. Reconquista and no one was indigenous to the New World long ago. All of our ancestors migrated here from somewhere else including your Spanish raping conquerors and your Asian ancestors whom you refer to as "indigenous" to this continent when they weren't.

Speaker John Boehner Closes Window On Immigration Reform This Year
Before Boehner's news conference, several immigrant children approached the speaker as he sat down for breakfast at a Capitol Hill diner and described how they could lose parents to deportation. The children were in Washington as several organizations maintain their pressure on the House to act on immigration.

Who cares what you think? Every country in the world has the right to borders and to build a wall if they wish just the same as homeowners have the right to build a wall/fence on their property lines. Does that make them Nazis? When are you going to tell Mexico to stop enforcing their immigration laws against the Guatamalans trying to enter their southern border illegally, hypocrite?

WTH do Africans/blacks have to do with the illegal immigration issue?

Boehner didn't force the kids' parents to illegally enter our borders or encouraged them to have kids here of which maybe now the kids and parents ended separated. These are choices the adult parents DECIDED TO DO ON THEIR OWN, THEY & THEY ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OUTCOME OF THEIR POOR CHOICE TO DO AS THEY DID. I'm sure they didn't succeed in making him feel guilty? for THEIR OWN ACTIONS. RESPECT OUR LAWS & YOU WILL BE RESPECTED.

You GOP fools always refer to Reagan - WHO GAVE AMNESTY TO OVER 3 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS!

It would generate more revenue making these illegals legal than to make them wait. They then have to pay taxes - did you think about that?

Actually the science isn't clear on that at all. They keep finding evidence of humans in North America LONG before the conventional migration from Asia timeline.

Numerically whites are the largest group on welfare. If you want the most bang for the buck, then cutting off white people will have MILLIONS more than cutting off welfare from illegals.

The Dems aren't doing it alone- they've had a LOT of help from the Republicans- i.e. the GOPasaurs.

The REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES are the ones who have to author every spending bill.

Hispanics will be the majority in the US within another generation. Whites are already the minority in 4 states- including CA & TX, and 6 more states are about to turn by 2020- including NY & FL. That will make whites a minority in the 4 most populous states in the nation, containing fully 1/3rd of the entire US population.

If you're under age 50, I'd suggest you start learning Spanish.
