The GOP leadership let the House immigration reform die in June by allowing a critical bloc of GOP legislators to split their votes between two rival reform bills, said Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the retiring chairman of the House committee on the judiciary.
Goodlatte’s statement matches the June statement by Rep. Jim Jordan, who said: “If our leadership had put the same whip effort behind that immigration legislation, Chairman Goodlatte’s legislation, it would have passed.”
Tell me again about how Trump is the reason the GOP lost the House. Go ahead. Pull the other one, it's got bells on it.
Retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan made the decision to create the rival bill that blocked Goodlatte’s bill.
On November 30, Ryan told an interviewer that he preferred the second bill, which he credited to Florida GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo.
The Curbelo bill was drafted when Ryan exploited a pro-amnesty push by Curbelo and other business-first GOP legislators to push an amnesty for younger “DACA” illegals. Ryan blocked the amnesty push by crafting a pro-business “Goodlatte II” bill to sink Goodlatte’s bill.
If the GOP actually followed the principles it claims to have, we would control both Congress and the White House, forever. But voters are faced with a choice - do they want to vote for a bunch of Anti-American National Socialist shitheels who are trying to destroy America (Democrats), or do they want to vote for a bunch of big-government Democrats-in-everything-but-name who lie about their intentions every single day in order to get elected (Republicans)? Most folks are going to go with the people who are open about their intentions, because it's easier to resist someone who's frank about their hatred for this country. GOP voters were tired of pulling knives out of their back, and they were sick and tired of Paul Fucking Ryan and the rest of the GOP establishment putting them there.
I hate the Democrat Party for being anti-American marxists, and I hate the Republican Party for being a bunch of backstabbing traitors. That's why I voted for Donald Trump. That's why I'll vote for him in 2020 if he runs. And if he doesn't run, I'll vote for someone else who will make the GOP scream in anger. Because then maybe they'll begin to have a small taste of the absolute rage I feel every time I see the GOP betray it's base. Which is a daily occurrence, at this point.
Donald Trump didn't lose the House. The GOP lost the House by shitting all over their voters ONCE AGAIN. And they might lose the Senate next time too.
