Between GOP establishment giving up on Obamacare repeal, while pushing amnesty, is it finally time for a NEW Republican Party?

Me thinks, YES!

Mark Levin has posed that precise question over the past few days. Between giving up on fighting for Obamacare repeal, while seemingly pushing an amnesty plan, new GOP leadership is essential. We must vote the RINOs out in order to push conservatism forward...

Embracing Obamacare

Back in August of last year, Levin explained that we're never going to get rid of Obamacare, because the Republicans don't want to get rid of it. And along comes Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers to prove his point...
TheSpokesmanReview: With the news this week that more than 600,000 Washington residents have acquired new health care plans through the state exchange, U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said it’s unlikely the Affordable Care Act will be repealed.

“We need to look at reforming the exchanges,” the Eastern Washington Republican said Thursday.

The five-term congresswoman and chair of the House Republican Conference kicked off her re-election campaign this week with visits to Walla Walla, Colville and Spokane. She faces Democratic challenger Joe Pakootas.

McMorris Rodgers has been part of the Republican leadership in the House that has voted multiple times to repeal parts or all of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. GOP members have said the law is unworkable, will increase costs for some and force others into inadequate coverage or plans they don’t want.

McMorris Rodgers continued those criticisms Thursday, but said the framework established by the law likely will persist and reforms should take place within its structure.
So with the GOP leadership, it's as we've been saying: show votes, while embracing the leviathan.

On Monday, Rush pointed to this story and discussed it in terms of a 'suicide mission' that the GOP is on...

Then on Tuesday, Limbaugh explains to the GOP how "it's not too hard" to repeal Obamacare, because there's precedent for repealing a major health care law. It happened in 1989...

Pushing Amnesty

Then Speaker Boehner, as usual, sits on his hands when it comes to fighting Democratic policies, yet mocks conservatives, his supposed own side, when it comes to upholding the rule of law, namely immigration law.

Oh, but wait, he claims he was just teasing...

Speaker Boehner has chosen to push forward the amnesty agenda, despite the American people and conservatives not wanting it - and then he mocks us for wanting to protect America's cultures and traditions? Regardless of whether it was mocking or teasing, the Republican Speaker should NOT be hocking comprehensive immigration reform under this lawless president! Yet another example of how the GOP leadership is beholden to the Chamber of Crony Corporatists and K Street...and how they've lost their principles (some of which you have to question if they ever really had in the first place).

Why is immigration reform NOT the answer to Republicans’ demographic woes? Well, even WaPo can figure that one out: Because reforming the nation's immigration laws could very well create a whole bunch of new Democrats, including in some key swing states.
The takeaway? Hispanic citizens' lower turnout and registration rates have so far limited their political impact. But if the significant share of Hispanic non-citizens gain a path to citizenship and actually start voting, the electoral map could change much more quickly than what the slowing changing demographics of the country suggest. And that would be a bad thing for Republicans.

Here's another takeaway: Folks, it's past time for a NEW Republican Party...and YOU are the only ones who can make that happen.
