The speech just happened so I cannot post what he said. I will tell you the lies and deceit make my skin crawl. Obama talks about Boehner being held hostage by the Tea Party and Boehner will not act on immigration reform this year, even though there are enough bi-partisan votes in the house to pass it. Obama says it doesn’t make any sense because without fixing our broken system, 11+ million illegals won’t come out of hiding and pay taxes and fines, learn English and go on to a path of citizenship by going to the back of the line. It means that the border will remain unprotected. It means that illegals trying to get here will remain in harms way from cartels and coyotes. If Boehner would just put it to the House for an up or down vote, then immigration reform would take place and he would sign the bill. Now he has to get with Homeland Security and the Attorney General to find HOW MUCH he can get around Congress with his executive actions. He would rather it go the right way with Congress’ approval but he will not wait anymore to act and fix this problem. Oh yeah. And being a public servant, you are expected to take care of the needs of the public. The needs of the public.
I have seen nothing about the needs of the public from this guy and his administration. He has an agenda and he wants it completed before he goes bye-bye. Just like he wants immigration reform before the 2014 mid-term elections. Wonder why. He never says anything about Harry Reid not holding an up or down vote on bi-partisan issues presented to the Senate. Reason being, those votes don’t fit Obama’s agenda and would hurt the credibility of the Democrat party (can’t have that) while making things better for the nation. But Obama wants the GOP to help him with his agenda, which would invariably hurt the nation. Like he says, it makes no sense. And what about fixing our immigration system? He is talking amnesty for 11 million (at least triple that figure) so that we can have legal low wage, unskilled, menial labor. There is only so much grass to mow, so many house to clean, limited amount of fast food service businesses and just so much trenches to dig.
It isn’t that you haven’t heard this speech before. I will update when it comes available. In the mean time, pinch your butt cheeks and open your wallets cause here comes another round of Obama “helping”. Don’t forget to keep up your health insurance because you are going to need the service for all these diseases that keep cropping up in the U.S.
