As many of you know, Senator Rubio has really let a lot of people down that stood beside him and fought hard for his place in the senate not that long ago. To many, it seems he has become just like the rest of the D.C. insiders that play their power games on ‘We the People‘ after they’re elected. He’s become quite polished with his swift talking points on various shows…it’s been amazing watching him transform with such ease to what he’s become to this day…but that’s just how I view it, you may see all of this differently.
Anyway, Sen. Rubio has been on many network shows over the past two months espousing his illegal immigration/amnesty propositions, stating the various reasons we all need to support this bill etc etc and blah blah blah. I don’t know…it’s all a bunch of BS paperwork of a bill that’s amounted to close to 1,500 pages of paperwork, filled with sweetheart deals for other senators to take home the bacon with their deals inserted inside it…and the list keeps on growing. It should be a great fire-starter and burnt to a crisp…but that bacon won’t be burnt, instead it will passed to the House to take care of from that point on and more bacon added into it. Then onto a conference between the House and Senate and voted on one more time in both chambers…and we, the American people, will be fracked once again after Dear Leader signs it. Simple as that.
Here’s a short report about this subject, you can read it in full here:
Responding to harsh criticism from Tea Party activists and conservatives, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) defended his support of the current immigration bill on the Senate floor Wednesday. He appealed directly to the people who helped him get elected, saying “their opinions really matter to me.”
“Over the last few days, I have received numerous emails and calls from conservatives and tea party activists from across the country regarding immigration,” Rubio began. “And they are increasingly unhappy about the immigration reform proposal in the Senate.”
He said conservatives are not against the immigration bill because they are “anti-immigrant,” but rather because they believe the U.S. has a right to secure its borders and a right to enforce federal immigration law.
Rubio defended the Senate’s immigration bill, claiming that there has been “false claims” about the legislation.
“This proposal mandates the most ambitious border and interior security measures in our nation’s history,” he said. “For example, it requires and funds the completion of 700 miles of real border fence, it adds 20,000 new border agents, it details a specific technology plan for each sector of the border, it requires e-Verify for every employer in America and it crates a tracking system to identify people who overstay their visas.”
He said people living illegally in the U.S. are already enjoying “de-facto amnesty.”
“To hear the worry, anxiety, and growing anger in the voices of so many people who helped me get elected to the Senate, who I agree with on virtually every other issue, has been a real trial or me,” he said.
However, Rubio argued he promised to “fight to stop what is bad for America.”
“I simply wasn’t going to leave it to Democrats alone to try to figure out how to fix it,” he said, adding that he is doing what he honestly believes is the best thing for America.
He also promised to continue fighting for “real tax reform,” lowering the national debt and balancing the budget, reducing regulation and other conservative policies, including repealing Obamacare.
So, in the end…do you think Rubio and his ‘Gang of Eight‘ will win in the long run of things, or not? And, do you have any message for him, along with his other pals on Capitol Hill, including House members like Rep. Paul Ryan…another Rubio/Capitol Hill insider?
Here’s Rep. Ryan tonight, this is via GWP:
Sadly, Rep. Paul Ryan is the latest Republican to defect to the dark side in the immigration debate. Tonight on Hannity the former vice presidential candidate struggled to explain why border security must be tied to the legalization process.
Ryan also admitted the issue could split the GOP,
“Of course, I’m worried about it.”
Will we lose on this major issue, or will we win? – What say you?
