Senate Republicans won’t use the nuclear option that would allow a simple 51-vote margin to pass the (anti-amnesty) Homeland Security bill sent them by the House.
So, they’re allowing Senate Democrats to stall the bill.
In a ‘compromise’ effort, the Senate GOP parted out anti-amnesty verbiage making it a standalone issue, hoping then Senate Democrats will go along with the DHS bill.
The Senate Republican thought process defies logic and common sense…
…if Democrats won’t go for anything in Plan A that threatens Obama’s amnesty plan, what makes the GOP think Democrats will go along with an 11th-hr Plan B…
…when it, too, obviously threatens Obama’s amnesty plans…?
Plus, as the GOP plays appeasement games, the media is enjoying the opportunity every day to cast Republicans as villains potentially causing a DHS shutdown.
(As if there were such a thing – in reality, essential Homeland Security operations would actually continue functioning.)
Obama’s amnesty threatens middle- and low-income earnings and jobs, and also causes a huge entitlement drain on an already financially-unsupportable system.
Senate Republicans should stop playing games, go nuclear, push the Homeland Security bill through on a partisan vote…and thus, dare Obama to veto the bill.
There is no downside to such a plan…
…WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR?
It can’t be a Democrat white flag of surrender…incredibly, with the help of deceitful media, Democrats stalling the bill are blaming Republicans…for stalling the bill.
As the GOP tries to act like adults in the room, Democrats give them rabbit ears…
…so much for the ‘advantages’ of a college education in politics.
In school, class clowns were lovable; the studious were derided and pranked.
Any guesses which Party is which?
