    John Boehner: No House vote on Senate immigration bill

    House Speaker John Boehner is sticking to his position: The House will not vote on the Senate-passed immigration bill.
    “I’ve made it clear and I’ll make it clear again, the House does not intend to take up the Senate bill,” Boehner said Monday. “The House is going to do its own job in developing an immigration bill.”


    He added, “It is time for Congress to act. But I believe the House has its job to do, and we will do our job.”

    and Boehner continues to show how he is the most inept house speaker in recent memory. He is a prisoner to his caucus.

    The republicant House disagrees with the demorat Senate - I am truely shocked by this recent development.

    And you wonder why I want a new Constitution. I say, take Boehner at his word and let him do his job? Is he required to take up the Senate bill? No, Hell no. Is he required to go to conference with his bill? Yes, Hell yes.

    i am not a fan of bills which are unconstitutional, but the republicans since taking the house have passed many jobs bills and sent them over to the senate, where harry has tabled them, and will not let them come to a vote on the senate floor.

    Re: John Boehner: No House vote on Senate immigration bill

    This immigration bill is very similar to the Baby Bush Immigration bill. That bill was unloved and unpassed. This bill is of equal popularity.

    Passing a bill won't make anybody happy except illegal aliens, and maybe not even them since they also want a rose and a box of chocolates. If this bill dies in the house or senate, it will still have accomplished its purpose - which is to make our rulers seem beneficent to some without aggravating too many. Democrats can say they tried and please their base. Republicans can say they stopped it and thus please their base. In the meantime, it's business as usual.

    Re: John Boehner: No House vote on Senate immigration bill

    Wonderful.:rolls

    An immigration bill that beefs up the bejeesus out of border security, gives the money for it up front, and provides for a long, tough, but real pathway to citizenship, and it was passed by a bipartisan supermajority; BUT, that's not good enough???

    Anyone got a good reason to vote for Republicans for Congress in 2014? This isn't one.

    new constitution, be careful what you wish for.

    please go and read the south African Constitution written several years, back...you think you would want something like that...?

    free speech until you offend someone, and rights, until government says you dont.
