Coulter on 1,170-page bill: Dems get new voters, GOP hoodwinked

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter appeared on Fox News Saturday morning and confirmed that she wants Speaker John Boehner to keep any immigration reform bill off the House floor, and blasted the junior senator from Florida for his change in stance on immigration reform.

Ann Coulter: “If Rubio’s Amnesty is So Great, Why Is He Lying?”

Coulter said she wants to see immigration reform tabled until after the midterm elections, hoping for a GOP majority in both chambers “so that we can pass a bill that actually is an e-verify bill, a fence bill.”

Coulter reserved special criticism for Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a “Gang of Eight” member who helped write the bill.

“It’s striking that Republicans, including Marco Rubio, don’t support such amnesties when they’re running for office,” Coulter said. “Oh no, somehow it’s once they get to Washington they discover all these unknown bounties for Republicans in amnesty.”

She added “Rubio specifically said ‘a pathway to citizenship is amnesty’ when he ran against Charlie Crist a couple of years ago.”

Coulter felt let down by the Florida senator and first unleashed on him in an April column where she asked, “If Rubio’s amnesty is so great, why is he lying?”

She also berated Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., for trying to rush the bill through before July 4.

“This is the way the Democrats always hoodwink, always snooker the Republicans,” she observed. “The better path has always been, let’s think about this. Let’s see what’s in this 1,000 page bill. I mean, this is another Obamacare-type bill, where people don’t know what’s in it. A real immigration bill could be about one page long: enforce, e-Verify, build a fence.”

    This Immigration thing will actually be good for me.

    The existing group of modern De Facto Slaves will grow by eleven million. The government will take trillions of dollars from W-2 wage earners, give it to these people, who in turn will be directed to buy products and services from business owners like me.

    What a deal….
