“The House approved a nine-month funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security Tuesday, breaking a lengthy stalemate over President Barack Obama’s immigration policies that exacerbated the rift between Speaker John Boehner and the conservative wing of his conference.
The measure passed 257-167, with 182 Democrats and 75 Republicans voting to beat a Friday midnight deadline for DHS funding to expire. Voting against the measure were 167 Republicans, many in protest to the lack of language to block Obama’s immigration policies. …”
It was obvious long ago to even the most partisan Republican voters that the GOP had no attention whatsoever of blocking Obama’s executive amnesty.
Elections are meaningless because the fate of public policy issues like immigration are ultimately determined by small cliques of billionaires who can bribe politicians to get their desired outcome. Thus, it was a waste of time for voters to follow or participate in the 2014 midterm elections. Although they vowed to fight “tooth and nail” against Obama’s amnesty, it didn’t matter if the Republicans controlled Congress because this result was always a foregone conclusion. Even if they had managed to triumph in Congress, a federal court would have been found to legitimize Obama’s amnesty.
Note: I’m sure this won’t be the end of all those articles which attempt to “tell the GOP how to win,” desperate partisan Republicans who will vote for any Republican to “stop Hillary,” or people here suffering from the illusion that they have any input in the process from following and discussing meaningless elections.
