Rand Paul: Immigration Deal Could Threaten Boehner’s Speakership

August 31, 2013

Sen. Rand Paul suggested Friday that John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, could lose his speakership if he allowed anything similar to the Senate’s immigration bill to ever get through the House.

Paul made his comments during an appearance on conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham’s radio show during which he predicted that Boehner wouldn’t permit such a bill to emerge from a House-Senate immigration conference.

“I’m worried about conference,” the Kentucky Republican said. “The only way to avoid a problem with conference is for the speaker of the House to say we are not going to conference, and we will not allow a vote on anything coming out of conference that resembles the Senate bill, and if there were a much more limited bill that emphasizes border security first, that we would do that.”

“I think … if he allows something to pass out of conference that looks anything like the Senate bill and is passed with a majority of Democrats, I think that will be the final thing he does as speaker. So, I think he knows that, and I think he’s going to be very cautious, and I hope he will defend us on this and not pass something that looks like the Senate bill.”

    I’ve been reading a lot of comments all over the web that basically say Boehner won’t even get reelected if he allows anything like the Senate amnesty bill – OR – does not defund Obamacare. He has been ignoring the voters for too long.

    Sen. Paul gives Boehner more credit for having good sense and a of proper ethics than I do.

    “Tammy Faye” has failed to honor his oath too many times in the past.
