I don't get how one person is allowed to speak for the whole country and hold up passing a bill, again. Washington has to change this at some point.

Silly wabbit... it's not about immmigration... it's about votes.
/rolls eyes at comment section ala GOP posters.

do you think Democrats pushing immigration reform is actually about 'those poor immigrants?' No. It is about gaining 11 million voters in the Democrat party.


Hence Boehners refusal.

Yet when asked last week if immigration was dead, he said, "Absolutely not." F'n asshat. mad

They're putting a bit too much confidence in the gerrymandering. This kind of sht may very well cost them the House despite their most robust efforts to cheat.

Boehner has blocked the bipartisan approved Senate budget which was sent to him in March. He has stopped at least 9 or 10 attempts to bring it to a vote. Meanwhile, we get GOP government shutdowns and he claims the President has failed to pass a budget.

Note to Boehner: It's the House's Constitutional responsibility to pass a budget, no one else's!
