… giving the former cable newser an opportunity to say “progressivism is a disease”:
Three of the most controversial Republican members of Congress appeared on Glenn Beck’s program Thursday to beg his viewers for support.
Reps. Steve King (IA), Michele Bachmann (MN), and Louie Gohmert (TX) appeared on the television show to discuss their opposition to comprehensive immigration reform.
Bachmann told Beck that the legislation would “reward” those who broke the nation’s laws and cost Americans “trillions” of dollars. She also called for Fourteenth Amendment citizenship rights to be scaled back, so that “anchor babies” were not provided with U.S. citizenship. Bachmann also claimed comprehensive immigration reform would “cement in place permanent progressive policies in to the future.”
“But it makes total sense if people understand progressivism is a disease in the Republican Party as well,” Beck responded.
