Why? Because I actually agree with something Senator Harry Reid said today. Reid announced today that he would call for a cloture vote on the grand-compromise-of-our-national-sovereignty-amnesty-bill (AKA S.1348) on Wednesday or Thursday and he hopes to wrap up the vote on this bill by the end of the week.
He and Senator Mitch McConnell had quite a little rumble on the floor of the Senate this afternoon over the speed at which Reid wants to jam this bill through the Senate with McConnell charging that there needs to be enough time for important amendments to be considered.
But Senator Reid seems to have read my mind when it comes to this despicable excuse for a solution:
Reid, however, indicated that he does not want to set aside more time to finish the bill. The Democratic leader argued that Republicans merely were trying to stall a bill they did not like.
“This is a bill that will never, ever make a majority of the Republicans happy, it doesn’t matter what we do,” he said. “Now they’re saying they need to vote on more amendments.”
Reid threatened that, if his cloture motion fails, he would not proceed further on immigration at this time.
Yes, you read that right. Senator Harry Reid seems to get it. He knows, “This is a bill that will never, ever make a majority of the Republicans happy…” Talk about a ‘quote of the day’ moment.
And yet, we have Republican Senators falling all over themselves to go against the majority of their constituents, even against their own principles, by trying to amend a piece of legislation that is rotted to the bone and ripe for the vultures who wish to erase our borders. Rather than behave as the opposition party, they blindly fall into the trap being set for them by those that would bring our party, and our nation, to ruin. Rather than using their cojones to oppose the new majority, they willingly place them in the Democrats purse.
To all of our Republican Senators that are trying to ‘work things out’ and ‘compromise’ with the Democrats on this issue, your party is asking you – we are demanding that you – listen to the above opinion of Senator Harry Reid – and your constituents, I might add – and then;
Get your cojones out of their purse and vote NO on this piece of garbage.
