“The New G.O.P. Showdown Threat
By THE EDITORIAL BOARDNOV. 27, 2014
Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama announced with great gravity the other day that Republicanshad decided not to impeach President Obamaover his plan to allow millions of immigrants to remain in this country without fear of deportation through his executive authority. But that concession is not the end of the matter. He is planning much more serious mischief: using Congress’s power of the purse to pressure the White House into backing off.
1. Who is Jeff Sessions?
“Jefferson Beauregard “Jeff” Sessions III (born December 24, 1946) is the junior United States Senator from Alabama. First elected in 1996, Sessions is a member of the Republican Party. He serves as the ranking minority member on the Senate Budget Committee.”
He is a University of Alabama trained lawyer who served in the U.S. Army Reserves as a Captain.
He is an attorney who has always worked for the government, including having been the Attorney General for Alabama. He is a professional politician who has accomplished nothing else.
2. Is retaliation the answer to immigration reform?
The GOP’s first answer to immigration reform is not to touch it because we can’t afford too.
They have a mission:
The mission of Republicans for Immigration Reform is to provide political support for Republican candidates that advance common-sense solutions to address the nation’s broken immigration system. We must address these issues through comprehensive legislation that recognizes U.S. borders, Rule of Law, dignity of individuals, and policies that address the needs of our economy in the 21st century.”
They have no answers.
3. What would month-to-month funding do?
Incremental funding introduces high risk to the government contracting community and to the economy. It is a destabilizing action. While it creates the appearance of control, its effect is the opposite. The author of this ideas, Jeff Sessions, reveals his weakness as a Senator, he has no CEO or managerial experience on which to base such a foolish action.
4. Why did the GOP back off from impeachment?
President Obama has not committed any impeachable offense. Republicans know that they have no legal foundation for impeaching Obama. The impeachable offenses are upon members of Congress who are failing to legislate solutions for the nation’s considerable needs. Disrupting government function should be an impeachable offense, right?
