Daily Caller -- December 16, 2014  
    Outgoing Rep. Michele Bachmann said Monday that her vote against the 2015 government spending bill last weekend was the “most consequential vote” of her tenure because it funded President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration.
    On Laura Ingraham's radio show, Bachmann took aim at the “ruling class in Washington,” saying that the U.S. will “not have any sovereignty” over its borders. Bachmann also opined that with the executive action, the president put in place an “insurance policy,” allowing Democrats to win “every presidential contest from here on out." [...]
    “That not only is a constitutional crisis, it's a rending of the social contract between the government and the people. Because the ruling class in Washington have just decided is that we will have open borders, we will not have any sovereignty over our borders,” Bachmann told Ingraham....

Bachmann is Right --- Oust Boehner
American Border Patrol
    Bachmann is absolutely right. Consider the Secure Fence Act of 2006. It was a sham to convince voters that our government was going to secure the border so they could get amnesty passed in 2007. Sen. Dole exposed that little plan on the Senate floor and amnesty failed.
    So, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson scuttled the fence (which they would have done anyway.)
    The latest nonsense was Chairman McCaul's "Border Security Results Act of 2013" --- also designed to fail. See this --- and this.
    The first order of business for the new House of Representatives must be to oust Speaker Boehner --- a puppet of the ruling class.

Six Reasons Conservatives Oppose Jeb
