No Wonder Republicans Are Anti-Immigration Reform

Hispanic Party ID, With Independent Leaners Allocated, January-June 2013

Gee, I wonder what Rep. Michele Bachmann has to say about this issue...

It is interesting that here we have a member of the Republican party worried about Democrats getting into power and changing election law when Republicans have come into power in several states and - you guessed it - changed election law. The problem is that when Republicans change election law, there is less access to voting. They eliminate early voting/reduce early voting periods, they pass ID laws that disproportionately affect people that are less likely to vote for Republicans, etc. It is a well known fact that the lower the turnout on Election Day, the better it is for the GOP.

It is also both interesting and telling that the arguments Mrs. Bachmann is making are purely political. The primary reason that she is against the immigration bill has nothing to do with people's rights and has everything to do with how it affects the Republican party. Way to show how much you care about liberty and freedom. Then again, we already know how much (read: little) she cares about liberty and freedom. What she - and the rest of her party - seem unable to realize is that the reason people are not voting for them is because of their policies...and how much those policies suck. If you want to regain power, you have to come up with better ideas than the GOP-led House voting against Obamacare 37 times at a total cost of 55 million dollars to the taxpayers, filibustering everything you do not like in the Senate, and saying that your number one job is defeating the President. These are the "ideas" that have led the GOP nationally. Clearly, America believes it deserves better...and America DOES deserve better.

Also, spanking the President? Those are really the words she wants to go with? No wonder no one takes her seriously (at least no one in their right mind).

And lastly, if Mrs. Bachmann want to know what is wrong with Congress, she need look no further than the nearest mirror.
