You remember how the National Republican Party told you that they would stand up to the Democrats & Barack Obama?
The House voted Tuesday to fund the Department of Homeland Security, ending a months long impasse over President Obama’s immigration policies and averting a weekend shutdown at the agency.
Good thing we got that majority eh?
It cleared the House on a 257-167 vote only because of the unanimous support of the House’s Democrats.
This wasn’t standing up to the Democrats, it’s standing with them.
The GOP reminds me of an abusive husband, actually that’s unfair to abusive husbands. While both beg you to take them back at least an abusive husband doesn’t beg you for money as well.
Any conservative who gives the national GOP money is a sucker.
Update: the words you’re looking for are “Lying Bastards”
Because we’d rather not take someone else’s word for it, we inquired independently. This weekend, Speaker Boehner’s office assured us House Republicans had no plans to capitulate to the demands of Senate Democrats. As to the speculation that there was some kind of a deal with Pelosi? “There is no such ‘deal’ or promise,” says Boehner Spokesman Michael Steel.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise echoed the sentiments saying, “There is no such deal and there’s no such bill,” Scalise said on “Fox News Sunday.” “On Friday, there was a bill on the House floor to pass a clean funding bill. We rejected that because we said we’re fighting the president on what he’s doing illegally on immigration,” according to The Hill.
“We are not giving in to Senate Democrats’ blackmail,” Boehner said, “Will keep fighting Obama’s unilateral action on immigration to protect Constitution.”
I’m done with these people.
Update 2: Allahpundit:
John Boehner, Democratic Speaker of the House.
