In a Mr. Smith goes to Washington moment, Tom Cotton delivered a stinging rebuke of all the things that are wrong with Washington D.C.
Tom Cotton is making a name for himself as a common-sense legislature who is not afraid to tell the hard truths.
After the Democrats led immigration bill ended in another debacle, Cotton said,
“Abraham Lincoln said if you call a dog’s tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have, five? No, it has four. Because calling something doesn’t make it that,” Cotton said. “In the same way you can call a bill bipartisan because there are some Republicans on that bill, and if the Republicans have simply acquiesced to the Democrats’ position, it’s a Democratic bill. Calling it bipartisan doesn’t make it so.”
Correct. Listen up Chuck Schumer and start doing your job. Cotton continued:
“You might call it the olly-olly-oxen-free position. Because it declares to anyone, worldwide, if you get to the United States in the next four months before, June 30, 2018, olly olly oxen free, the Department of Homeland Security will not enforce our laws against you.”
What moronic Democrat thought that proposal would ever pass? Cotton laid into the Democrats some more,
“…It’s the exact reason why so many immigration bills have failed for so many years in this body because the Democrats write bills that they claim does one thing when in reality it does the exact opposite thing.”
Then Cotton dropped the hammer and exposed the whole charade for what the fraud it was:
“And finally, this amendment has no chance of becoming law. Zero chance. It shouldn’t pass this chamber, to begin with, but even if that were to happen, President Trump issued a veto threat just minutes ago. The House of Representatives is not going to pass this bill. They probably won’t even take it up, as they didn’t take it up the last time the Senate passed a terrible immigration bill.”
You would think the politicians in DC have something better to do than just waste everyone’s time.
