Keep the government shut down, they cannot do amnesty for illegal aliens. Sounds like a good plan.
Clearly an upside to the “shut-down” (which really isn’t).
Energy focused on protecting the badly mis-named “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010” is energy and concentration that is not available for promoting amnesty.
Note to the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut - you ain’t got all that much political capital left.
