“," Wolf said. "I don't know what it does, so I don't want to vote for it." If he does not know what it does, he should read the bill. If he refuses to read the bill , he should not be a representative , as it is his job to understand the bills and vote responsibly on them.”

Republican Argues Immigration Reform Debate Leads To Child Sex Trafficking

“I'm confused ,is Gomert accusing the government of carefully finding guardians for illegal children. Who will traffic them for sex? Um,what civil service pay grade are pimps?.. Nothing but hate-word salad out of Gomert.”

Anon Huffy on May 22, 2014 at 07:09:34

“No, if you're going to post a snarky comment at least follow along. Parents pay coyotes to smuggle their kids across the border. Coyotes are notorious for leaving people to die in the desert, raping women and children, and kidnapping women and children for sale in the sex trade.

The number of minors being snuck across the border has increased because border patrol delivers them to their parents when caught, instead of repatriating them to their own country. Which is what they're legally required to do, return them to their own country. Even a very liberal immigration judge has called them out on it with concern.”

The bonus is the result that the Costco Staff is courteous and helpful and on top of that the stores are clean, well-stocked and have excellent products. Wake up Walmart!”

“There are only so many Julie Boonstras, who for ideological reasons only, can refuse to believe the truth that the ACA is actually saving her money. “Obamacare” is facing the same Conservative onslaught that Social Security faced at its inception. Sooner or later the preponderance of personal anecdotes like mine ( grown daughter gets help for migraines for the first time in her adult life)from families, friends and neighbors will overpower the constant attacks, and the ACA will become as ensconced and appreciated as Medicare and Social Security.”

“No. The women said this bill being made law would be condescending. And they are right. It would be to you as well if you read it and knew what we were talking about. The "paycheck fairness act" has nothing to do with paycheck fairness, and very little to do with paychecks. The fact is the Equal Pay Act was written into law in 1963.”
