Fixing the economy while Obama is president is not something any Republican cares about.

Republicans never care about fixing the economy. Enriching the already wealthy even further is their only concern.

Or admitting that their policies created (and continue to encourage) the hiring of immigrant workers in large numbers.

Boehner dodged several questions about whether he supports a pathway to citizenship, saying it's not his job to impose his will on the other 434 House members.

Sure. And it's also not my job to impose my will on the team I lead at work. Boehner is a mediocre leader, at best. Good thing he's not in the Senate, or his job title would be "Majority Leader" and the denial would be that much more difficult.

I remember a while back he complained when someone called him a dictator.  Any Speaker worth spit is a dictator; that's how the House is set up.  It is absolutely a tyranny of the majority and that tyranny is run by the Speaker.

You have not been paying attention, they care very much about fixing the economy, and they've been working very hard to see that it doesn't happen.

Of course it would be  a boon! It would quickly eliminate under minimum wage paying companies.

This is just part of the Republicans trying to do a 180 on immigrants in order to do the absolute minimum required to win enough minority votes to stay in power.

"See immigrants, the Speaker of the House said immigration can be a boon."
"Did he say he'd support it?"
"A boon! Boon is a good word!"

And lest people think this is a joke, there's basically no other justification for austerity during a recession.

And this man thinks he deserves to be Speaker.

We're reverse-invading Mexico for their human resources.  It's the modern equivalent of the Roman economic model.

So this legislation has these two different parts for different groups:

group A) We are building a huge wall, monitoring that wall 24/7, if they come here and stay illegally we want to make it 10+ before they have any chance of being here legally.

Group B) Let's add tens of thousands who can just fly into our country as long as they pinky swear to leave when they said, even though most of them don't and then become illegal and we will not try to kick them out and just freely let them easily become "legal" again with NO waiting period.

If the thing is not about afraid of Mexicans why are the rules so strict for the group B that is mostly Mexican and so lenient to group A which is not mostly Mexicans? If it's about being here "Illegal" than why don't H1-visa people who overstay (which is almost 50% of the illegals in the US) have to leave the country or wait 10+ years to get their status back too?

I love the wall mentality.  30 years ago Republicans wanted to tear down the wall for freedom, now they want to build the wall for freedom.
