Americans should be tired of the political games that politicians are playing.
What is the latest example of this?
From the Washington Post:
Senate Democrats are making plans to force a floor vote on legislation that would invalidate Arizona’s controversial immigration statute if the Supreme Court upholds the law this summer.
Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) will announce the fallback legislation at a hearing on the Arizona law Tuesday, a day before the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in a suit to determine whether Arizona had the authority to enact the 2010 state crackdown.
The legislation would have little chance of passing in a stalemated Senate or being approved by a GOP-held House, but it would allow Democrats to push their electoral advantage with Latino voters just as the presidential campaign heats up in July.
The plan is to allow Democrats a route to express displeasure with the Arizona law if the court allows it to stand, and it would force Republicans to take a clear position on the law during the height of the presidential campaign. The immigration law is deeply unpopular with Latino voters, who could be key to the outcome of the presidential and Senate races in several Western states.
“If the court upholds the Arizona law, Congress can make it clear that what Arizona is doing goes beyond what the federal government and what Congress ever intended,” Schumer said in an interview.
He called the Arizona law an “assault on the domain of the federal government” that Congress will need to address if the court allows it to stand.
Of course it is asking too for the Party Of Treason to protect American citizens. However, this is too much. There is no way Republicans will let this get to the floor in the House. Schumer, who is one of the biggest fools in Congress knows this. He just wants to make political points.
Americans are sick of the politicians playing politics and being more interested in playing political games than working to solve our problems.
Chuck Schumer and the Democrats have no interest in solving America’s problems. They are the problem.
Absolutely right, Ron. Although the article says, "...it would allow Democrats to push their electoral advantage with Latino voters...", I believe they (Dems) are making a huge strategic error. The vast majority of legal immigrants, especially those who have gone to the expense and trouble to not only immigrate, but to become naturalized and therefore are the only immigrants who can legally vote, do not support the non-enforcement of immigration laws. The statement "The immigration law is deeply unpopular with Latino voters..." is substantially incorrect, in my opinion.
Here is a link to an article, written by a legal immigrant that supports my opinion.
Yes,Judson,this makes Sick to my stomach!This gov. is out of controll!Scary,but just like the 1st american revolution,the ONLY Revolution in history that succeded(as far as I know,I'm no Historian)!
ARE THEY THE PROBLEM OR THE SOLUTION, at this point in time "THEY ARE THE PROBLEM". 10% approval 90% disapprove of THE PARTY OF TREASON/CONGRESS/SENATE. NOBAMA/ NOBOEHNER 2012/13.
Let him it will make no difference. We must stand on the constitution. We will get more respect from that than any maneuver by Chuck U. Schumer.
The solution, get rid of the likes of Shummer.
Unfortunately his district keeps voting him back in. He brings too much money back to his district. Need to fix the district and then maybe Schumer will go.
Unfortunately, this idiot is one of my senators. I will be calling his office tomorrow and asking his staff "what about the 'assault' of the Obama gang on the sovereign state of Arizona's right to protect its citizens when the federal government clearly will not?" And by what right does that sniveling brat obummer have to go before the U.N. Council on Human Rights(sic!) complaining about a sovereign state of the United States of America? Schumer doesn't even have the courage to admit he's a socialist. I want to trade him for Rand Paul or Jim DeMint - the southerners down there can feed Schumer to the hogs! Good reporting, Judson.
Schumer's phone number is (202)-224-6542
Let's ruin his morning tomorrow
. . .and if you can't get through via the number William posted--here is a link to his online email:
. . .and check out the bottom of the page--it lists all his office phone numbers (in DC and throughout NY state).
Great idea William--thanks!
How does everyone feel the Supreme Court will rule on this especially in light of the fact that Kagan has recused herself? Will it end in a tie(4-4), which will cause it to revert back to the District Court's ruling (which, if I recall correctly, struck down several parts of AZ's law).
Is this court picket by the people or by some fool in the government?
