Chutzpah, thy name is Rep. Glenn Thompson. On March 7, Thompson bashed President Obama in these pages for vetoing the Keystone XL pipeline. Obama’s veto will cost our country $2 billion and 40,000 jobs.
Yet just four days earlier, Thompson voted to fund Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty.
Obama’s, and now Thompson’s, amnesty will cost our country $10 billion over 10 years in earned income tax credits to the illegal aliens, along with billions of dollars more in welfare and public services. The amnesty will act as a magnet for more job stealing invaders. It will be a boon to the cheap labor lobby by increasing the labor supply in a tight job market, at the expense of American citizens.
American Action Network, a super PAC closely tied to Jeb Bush, has promised to reward Thompson’s betrayal of his constituents and his oath of office by spending millions on Thompson’s re-election.
One hopes that a conservative patriot will emerge soon to become the 5th District’s Dave Brat against our Eric Cantor.
