    Re: John Boehner: No House vote on Senate immigration bill

    You want a new Constitution?

    Not In My Back Yard

    But now I'm curious. What exactly were you hoping the new Constitution would say?

    can you name one bill? one that the senate can at least modify, amend, and send back to the house for a another round of amendment adding?

    Anyone got a good reason to vote for Republicans for Congress in 2014? This isn't one.

    just as good a reason to vote for a democrat.

    the point is..... harry has tabled bills, he does not want them coming to the floor for a vote.

    maybe if the bills were not symbolic votes to repeal the affordable care act, cut unemployment benefits, or cut food stamps, then perhaps harry reid would have brought the bills up for debate.

    You hit the nail on the thread we have going in the Constitution forum. I think we're taking a rest from it now. If a county to state to federal convention occurs, it will occur in your back yard whether you like it or not. It may be the only way to side-step a Gerry-mandered House.

    The only reason for gerrymandering is to meet federal "fairness" requirements...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    does not matter, why is it not OK to stop a vote, in the lower house ..but OK in the upper house to stop votes?

    I see. Always the Fed's fault. An 80-20 Dem seat in each of the smaller southern states and the rest 53-47 Repub seats. That's why we have the 17th. Did they have "fairness" requirements a century ago?

    And we are back to the Republican house holding everything up again. Back to the good ol do nothing congress.. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Thank God he is not moving on this POS bill. We need border control, not amnesty. It is yet another bill they failed to read before passing. It is political in nature and serves only to bolster the democrat voting numbers in years to come. Repubs voted for it thinking it will garnish hispanic votes. Fools, it will do just the opposite.
