Breitbart Exclusive: Rand Paul UNLOADS on Immigration Bill

EXCLUSIVE: Rand Paul UNLOADS on Immigration Bill

by Matthew Boyle 25 Jun 2013

On Tuesday afternoon, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) unloaded a series of harsh criticisms on the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

When asked if there is a concern that government bureaucrats may take advantage of nonspecific language in the complicated 1,200-page immigration bill, regardless of the intention of any given provision’s author, Paul said, “Yes, that’s what I’ve been saying for a few weeks now, that there are some similarities with Obamacare.”

“This Gang of Eight bill delegates a lot of authority to the administration," he explained. "So, with my amendment, ‘Trust But Verify,’ we tried to get that authority back and keep it in Congress, where Congress would vote on whether the border is secure.

Rand's amendment is stupid. They'll just vote "without

objection" that the border is "secure" and then everyone can go back to sleep.

Really, Rand, how DUMB are you?

Even if they have to cast a roll call vote, they'll still do it and if necessary fudge any supporting material to show that it is secure when it isn't. They'll just redefine "secure."

5 Senators, Baucus included, cannot answer this question.

"Under Obamacare, businesses with over 50 workers that employ American citizens without offering them qualifying health insurance could be subject to fines of up to $3,000 per worker. But because newly legalized immigrants wouldn’t be eligible for subsidies on the Obamacare exchanges until after they become citizens – at least 13 years under the Senate bill – businesses could avoid such fines by hiring the new immigrants instead." [emphasis me]

On Tuesday afternoon, THE WEEKLY STANDARD asked five different U.S. Senators about this problem. These five senators, all Democrats, voted to cut off debate Monday night on the revised immigration bill, but none of them knew if the bill would create a financial incentive for some employers to hire amnestied immigrants instead of American citizens.

"We're trying to solve that right now. I don't know if that's been solved," Senator Max Baucus of Montana

A thank you bump

for both Rand and yourself.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

I believe that happens a lot

I think it's one reason women go from 36-24-34 after they marry to 46-72-80, as they stop doing what they were doing (attracting people) to watching out for the scales.

And men come down with what is known as the Furniture Disease...
