House Republicans have begun efforts to reform our immigration laws, and Democrats are, of course, angry.
Did You Hear About the Vaccine Tax?... Obamacare Soaks Young People...
RUSH: He was engaged, and he was opinionated, and he was informed. He was a thoughtful, thinking, considerate, caring, real man. A brave, brave guy. He went out of his way to do anything he could for anybody and didn't expect anything in return, didn't want anything in return. There are a lot of people who are gonna miss him terribly. Everybody that knew him is gonna miss him terribly.
RUSH: The CBO report has come out on this bill (chuckling), and the way it's being interpreted is laughable. The idea that this is gonna grow the economy? It's almost an exact replay of Obamacare, particularly in the way the whole thing is being scored.
CRUZ: As you know, a lot of Americans are fed up. They're fed up with Democrats and they're fed up with Republicans. They're fed up with politicians in Washington who don't stand for anything. And it's how we've gotten in this mess. It's how we've gotten $17 trillion in debt, and, if we keep doing business as usual, it's how we're gonna pass yet another amnesty bill that doesn't fix the problem. And I think Americans are really fed up with that and we need to stand up and stop it.
RUSH: His speech, it kind of fizzled at the end. Chris Matthews offered a reason why. The setting sun made it difficult for Obama to see the teleprompter. He couldn't see the text. So it was the sun's fault.
RUSH: Marco Rubio, to a lot of Republicans, is the great hope. Presidential politics, Marco Rubio ranks high on many people's lists. And, I can tell you, folks, there are a lot of Republicans who are hoping, they're willing to give Senator Rubio a pass on this to a certain extent because he's so good at articulating conservatism... They're hoping he backs out of it. They're hoping that, at the last minute, he'll just withdraw from this so as not to be tainted by it. Because, the fact of the matter is, there will be significant Republican outrage if this thing passes and it's made possible by significant Republican participation.
RUSH: The New Jersey legislature wants to start using taxpayers' dollars to subsidize college tuition for students who are in the country illegally.
RUSH: The Democrats want national health care. We don't say "no" and oppose it. We have to have an alternative. So they're always setting the agenda.
