The Senate Immigration bill is dead. It’s not going anywhere in the House. The Republicans might get their own bill out, but then again, they might not. The fact that the Senate Republicans can’t admit their defeat is just a sign of their own arrogance. The Senate bill was too big to work. It was never written to be workable. It was written to make fools of the Republicans who helped to write it.
I don't know if that was the purpose, but if so they were supremely successful! I heard Hoeven of Corker-Hoeven in an interview, and it was clear he didn't even understand the amendment he supposedly wrote.
Plenty of buffoonery there. Lisa Murkowski sold her vote for an Alaska Seafood Visa program.
Obama stayed out of sight and let the GOP do his work.
