Are Republicans Scheming To Get Amnesty Out of Conference?

So the fear is that this Coburn/Cuellar “compromise measure” on improving the Wilberforce Act (7 days for hearing, three days for judge to decide) will invite a full House-Senate conference to negotiate differences, and this last mechanism will permit the amnestias to launch a full-spectrum Comprehensive Piece of Shit on both houses of Congress.

I don’t think they’ll do that, for a couple of reasons.

1, they have to at least be smart enough to know the base is furious over Mississippi. Would they dare to strike again while the base is angry?

Yes, of course they would. They knew Mississippi would enrage their base as well. Did that stop them?

The Gentry GOP is learning the lessons the Democrats have taught for decades: Never back down, double down. Fight to the death for what you want. Ruthlessly crush any opposition.

Of course the Democrats aim at the Republicans, while the Republicans aim at their own base.  Anyway, as I’ve been warning you, Boehner will find a way to pass scamnest with mostly Democrat votes before the election this year.  This is likely going to be his vehicle.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. The Gentry GOP is learning the lessons the Democrats have taught for decades: Never back down, double down. Fight to the death for what you want.

    The problem is that they only do this when dealing with people who are generally on the same side of the political spectrum as they are. When faced with real political opposition, they turn into whiny pussies.

    • Their real political opposition, as they see it, is the base. They seem to be perfectly happy with the power, boodle, perks and power that come with being the minority party. They say “Pay me” and Leviathan and the gentry GOP and their donors do just that. The base doesn’t. Not only that but every election cycle they swallow the crap sandwich and say “may I have another sir?”
