This is America - we're the richest nation on the planet, we're supposed to be exceptional, the shining city on the hill, but when women and children are coming to us fleeing violence and human trafficking, we can't even keep them in humane conditions before we fly them back? Something's wrong with that picture.

It was not a serious attempt at governance, just as the 50+ times they voted to appeal the PPACA was serious goverance. Frankly, its just a joke it should not even have made the newspaper, unless you post dead bills in the obituaries. This is not a serious congress; this is not worthy of serious discussion.

Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
And, it works. It casts the blame on the Democrats, so the Democrats have to leap and hoot and find ways to blame the Republicans, who then fling crap back at the Democrats, and meanwhile we get nothing to solve the border issues (yes, plural), the highway issue, Russia and its sabre rattling, the VA, the budget, or anything else.
So, sure, blame Obama and Reid. They're as much to blame as anyone else in Washington for the mess we're currently in. Soon, Obama will be out, and someone will take his place. Maybe Reid will be out as well, who knows? But the problems will continue.

i provided money for NG support on the border to have BP control the flood.
it provided money to speed up the deportation process
it scaled back the 2008 bill to help speed up that process as well.
it did however limit obama in granting amnesty which is what he is attempting to do now.
as well as unconsitutionally change our immigration laws through executive fiat which he is not allowed to do.
yet he won't so he must not be that serious.
yep i will blame those two morons. they couldn't govern their way out of a wet paper bag. they have no business being in charge of anything let alone this country.
