Boehner is a weasel. The entire Republican leadership are weasels. We need a new party that will represent Americans and the middle class. Todays Rs and Ds are way too radical. Both parties suck.

Amnesty is coming wrote:
It’s called election year posturing. And regardless of the outcome in November, the Repugs will be forced to deal with this issue in good faith long before the 2016 election. Amnesty is coming soon.
How do you deal in good faith with someone who has displayed bad faith by being here illegally in the first place. Already been there done that. If the border is not closed and peoples bad faith not addressed I do not see a way for it to work. It will just be the same as the last time.

It is hard to believe that both parties are determined to pass this amnesty bill.
McCain is so wrong about deporting illegal aliens, know given a few months I and many others could have them out of this country. What happened is our elected officials caved into big business and the only solution is this amnesty.

Sure the politicians think that we will just accept this, to much trouble for the stupid American people to care.

WE HAVE BEEN SOLD OUT! Only solution is to vote both parties out and do a write in vote, know that won't help very much so I am open to any reasonable ideas. So disgusted with all of them.

And the liberal side is even worse. They even block the government from deporting the people who commit crimes and are illegal. All for perceived future votes. Since when can the government choose which laws to enforce, when it is the people who voted the laws in.

Boehner acting out the whiney repubes re immigration is priceless:

But — even while acknowledging that he was being videotaped — decided to make a little national news. "'Here's the attitude. Ohhhh. Don't make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard,' Boehner whined," as the Enquirer puts it.

Lets see the Libs have all been on board with the immagration train for years now and when Bohner starts thinking of having some input into the discussion, you label him whining. He agreed with your side and you complain. I can understnd his point but disagree with it.

That just makes you a paid political hack!!!!!

You are 100% correct. The treasonous libturds don't care about the illegal parasites,just their votes. This is just another reason why the midterms are so critical.
