Harry Reid Promises DREAM Amnesty Vote in Lame-duck Session

October 31, 2010

First Loretta Sanchez promised a lame-duck session vote on amnesty. Now Harry Reid does too:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) vowed on Spanish-language television to bring the DREAM Act back for a vote in the lame-duck session.

On the Univision program “Al Punto,” Reid was repeatedly hammered by host Jorge Ramos on whether the vote would happen, win or lose on Tuesday.

“The answer is yes,” Reid said.

I hope they both lose on November 2nd.

    But Snowe, Dukakis, and Graham won’t. McCain probably won’t either, now that he’s back to his usual maverdick self, post-primary.

    Yeah, McLiar will go for it, the miserable scumbag.

    If he wins, I think Raese makes it in for that vote though, so that’s some small help.

    Lucinda Graham seals his own fate though, if he votes for this. No way he survives a primary challenge, if he sticks his thumb in the peoples’ eye that flagrantly.

    I bet the lefty senators up in 2012 vote it down, however. That’s who to target.

    I think Snowe and Dukakis might be rethinking things, given all the primary defeats of incumbents this year, plus the fact that Republicans might well take over both of Maine’s House seats.

    All I know about Senator Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer and generally–ALL–Liberal Democrats are that they are genuflecting to illegal aliens and an Liberal-Dem Incumbent returns means Amnesty for the 13 to 20 million living here. Reid has affirmed that in the Lame Duck session of the Senate he will pass this abhorrent Amnesty to criminals. What remains is the silence, about the cost of $2.6 Trillion dollars (Heritage Foundation), to make it comfortable for illegal aliens which will come out of taxpayers’ pockets; added to the 13. 5 Trillion Federal Debt we already have accumulated. The far left progressives have already voted for the illegal invasion and to extend our Social Security to them, even the ones who never paid into the system (May 2007) GOOGLE—On The Issues website. WE ARE DIGGING OUR OWN FINANCIAL GRAVES WITH REID IN SENATE AND BOXER.

    Under another reign of the Liberal Democrats, America might just as well open the border gates wide; demolish the half-completed fence between our Southern border and the other side. Then have Senator Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, Russell Feingold, Jerry Brown, standing at each entrance handing out maps, welfare chits, a brand new Social security cards, a drivers’ license and about $600 dollars of taxpayer money. Hey! Reid says we can take more foreigners into our midst, as we only have 15 million citizens and legal residents, looking for a job, while 8.6 illegal nationals are gainfully employed. Have every Democrats lackey stand outside each border hospital and proffer to every pregnant woman, who reached America a brand new birth certificate, for the potential instant citizenship baby, a check for the public benefit line and a signup sheet for low income Section 8 housing—so the whole family can join them.

    Additionally, for every child they now have from now on, food stamps, cash payments and a medicade card for future pregnancies. The wives can churn out more children to become immediate citizens and swell our schools to overload, where nobody is learning because the teachers have to first contend with children, where English is a second language. In California where 18.9 percent of the kids drop-out of high school, because many teachers don’t comprehend English, as they have been recruited from South of the border. Democrats could lay-off the US Border patrol, the DEA, ICE and other policing authorities, so that the uneducated, those carrying contagious diseases, the destitute and other foreign peons could take the jobs of our own impoverished workforce.

    Maybe the Catholic Church and other religious groups will take the illegal nationals into their homes, feed them. Perhaps we should place notices in every barrio, ghetto around the world and have these nonsensically politicians procure military aircraft, to fly in every foreign national, every criminal and terrorist into our nation. Have fleets of buses waiting to transport them, to every corner of America, with stop-offs at hospitals for the sick, mentally handicapped and old. We should have ambulances waiting at the border or airport terminals, to drive those individual who must get immediate dialysis, prescription drugs or a major surgery. With the Obama’s new medical care reform most of these special issues will be recognized, as illegal aliens will have no insurance or any ability to pay for physician’s treatment.

    They walk away completely free of paying and once again the taxpayer-patsy will get the bill, while citizens will be chased down by obnoxious debt collectors. Taxpayers can foot the bill as they have always done and my guess always will, unless these corrupt politicians on both sides of the aisle in Washington actually work for the American people. That’s why THE PEOPLE’S TEA PARTY has risen in a revolution, to halt the corruption and greed of both parties. GOOGLE—NumbersUSA website and Judicial Watch and learn about the deep seated corruption Google—Illegal alien costs and read highly regarded reports from unbiased sources.

    If we vote back the hidden Liberals, it will be self inflicted wounds. Attention should be drawn to illegal aliens voting, as Senator Reid’s is there only real chance of the passage of—AMNESTY.

    The Lame duck session will be lame. Senators looking at 2012 will have to consider how likely are they to survive a Yes vote…that is the bill even reached the senate.
    I expect the remaining time will be spent avoiding any more voter insults and full cooperation from conservatives.

    I think you underestimate the impact that a 70+ seat change in the house and losing the Senate (which I am now convinced will happen) is going to have on the congress.

    Maine is about to elect two republican congressmen and governor. The ladies will be voting to sustain a filibuster on amnesty. As will McCain and Graham. Say what you will about how the election of Scott Brown was lost on the democrats. It was not lost on the republicans, neither will this wave. Expect the RINOs to go into full vocal “I’ve ALWAYS been a conservative” mode on Nov. 3rd.

    I’ll go so far as to say that it won’t pass the house. In fact I’ll be VERY surprised if it even makes it up for a vote in the house. Despite the anger of those defeated, we’ll have taken seats that they believed safe for all time. They will be far to busy eating their own to cooperate. Half of those left will NOT want any part of this vote.
