Sessions: Republicans on verge of breaking campaign pledge

From: National Review

That’s on amnesty, as we might suspect, given the house and senate leadership which is, and is to be.  It is sad when the only clue you or we might have on our congress’  ability to keep a promise is mostly null and void.  Other reports have the dems and progressives laughing their ample tails off over the potential of Republicans not keeping their word.

Here’s what Session’s has to say:

Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) suggested that House Republicans are on the verge of breaking their campaign promise to fight President Obama’s administrative amnesty, judging by the legislative text currently being circulated.

Sessions said that the proposed language “fails to meet [the] test” established by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who promised earlier this year that the GOP would do everything possible to thwart Obama’s executive orders.

“The executive amnesty language is substantially weaker than the language the House adopted this summer, and does not reject the central tenets of the President’s plan: work permits, Social Security and Medicare to 5 million illegal immigrants — reducing wages, jobs and benefits for Americans,” Sessions said in the statement expressing his dissatisfaction with the results of a House Republican conference meeting today.

In the meeting, “the lawmakers began coalescing around a two-part plan that would allow a symbolic vote to show their frustration with President Obama’s executive action on immigration, before funding the government ahead of a Dec. 11 deadline,” according to the New York Times.

    If this next congress turns out like Newt’s congress, I’ll be forced to opt out of the two party system and join SOMETHING else.
