'SPEAKER CRUZ IS IN THE HOUSE' Republican Border Plan Is In Total Chaos After Conservative Revolt
Business Insider ^ | July 31st, 2014 | Brett LoGiurato

Posted on 07/31/2014 8:19:29 AM PDT by Mariner

House Republican leaders abruptly changed their plan to deal with the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border late Wednesday night, after they were not able to muster enough votes to pass the legislation before Congress leaves Friday for a five-week recess.

Conservatives in the House revolted against the Republican-led plan, which provides about $659 million in emergency spending for the border crisis through the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30.

As a result, the House will vote Thursday on two pieces of legislation, the first being the border plan. If that legislation passes, the House would be required to vote on legislation that would bar President Barack Obama from delaying the deportation of young, undocumented immigrants.

The Republican dissent was led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), the conservative freshman firebrand who has miffed House leadership before by meddling in the House's affairs (most notably, last year, ahead of the government shutdown).

Cruz met with a sizeable group of House conservatives in his Senate office Wednesday night, where they ate pizza and discussed the border crisis, according to sources. Some of the attendees, according to Roll Call, included Republican Reps. Steve King of Iowa, Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Steve Stockman of Texas, and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee.

This is actually a novel approach by Cruz. Coordinating with the House on these issues instead of the useless, Liberal infested Senate to build a strategy and narrative.

Only 2.

And it'll take time to solidify.

He's certainly has earned the enmity of all GOP elected leadership!

As another poster said, that TOO is a badge of honor.

Yes

The plan is to pass something that looks good and replace it with the Senate plan in conference. Then they Dims and Dim-lites pass it.

By separating the bills, the funding bill has a chance of being passed (to give Reid some cover) while the second one is DOA.

Not happy they separated them. Too easy for Reid to take the money and ignore the principle.

Reid, McConnell, Schumer, McCain, Graham, et al, already plan to attach the Senate amnesty bill to any bill that reaches the compromise committee.

Actually, it will end up being Executive Order Amnesty.

Difficult to say. He's still working on O's with Reid on his.

Sarah will always be loathed because she is an attractive, intelligent woman and women are not suppose to be part of the war on women.

It's very unlikely EITHER will pass the House and Boner may not put either on the floor.

Unless he has a deal with Pelosi to get SOMETHING to Conference.

Cut off all funds to all agencies for transportation and housing of illegals coming across — and this will end.
