    Seems like a **** ton of border security. You should be going crazy.

    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.
    But in other words if this immigration bill fails, there will be no immigration bill and it will be another major loss for Republicans... So go ahead i guess in your book you loose either way.

    You didn't ask me but here is a short list of some of them. It's from 2011 and I don't know if any of them finally received any consideration. If I find some time I might look them up in the records, but it won't be any time soon.

    Oh, they find plenty of reasons to gerrymander. In fact it is these "safe" districts that are killing the ability of Congress to get anything done. The one thing these Republicans fear is not a Democrat, but a primary challenge from the TP. Statewide is different, which is why the Senate works a little different.

    Here's the thing: they know that it's going to hurt their party in the Presidential race, but these guys need to get re-elected in 2014 first. That's what they care about right now. Going far to the right is not going to hurt them in these districts.

    Good. We should have no part in any amnesty for ANY illegal alien. We've tried it before, it was a colossal failure and only encourages more criminals to come to the US.

    Anyone got a good reason to vote for Republicans for Congress in 2014? This isn't one.
    And what is to stop them from gutting the portion of the bill that deals with border security and crack downs on buisnesses hiring illegals on down the road just like they did with Regan's amnesty? Until they stop gutting needed things we sure as hell do not need more illegals getting amnesty.

    You hit the nail on the head. Yes, we lose either way if this bill is passed, or killed. If our illustrious government would have upheld the law, and not interfered with states trying to uphold the law over the past 40 yrs, we would not be in this mess. Honestly, based on their lack of courage, Republicans deserve to lose. Both parties suck swamp water. Throwing what they call a **** load of security at the border now is like waiving a small thin stick at a hugh flock of sparrows, that have already passed you. It's all for show and won't fix anything. Laws have been broken and nobody gives a ****.
