Ann, i believe your logic against this bill is superior to the logic for it. The " gang of eight " are acting like Democratic operatives. The plan must be to split the Republican party in half so even a failure like H.C. can win in 2016 ( kinda reminds one of 1992 ).
If the conservatives can't take over the party real fast, then the rinos will get their wish as a permanent sub-party to the dems. A third party may be inevitable, but the 2016 election will be lost if the republicans don't figure this out.
