SourceOne Republican leader on Sunday held open the possibility that his party could move to shut down the government in an attempt to stop President Barack Obama from taking executive action on immigration policy.
A vocal group of conservatives in the House of Representatives is pressing to use government funding as leverage to prevent any White House moves that would allow millions of undocumented immigrants to stay and work in the United States.
Several Republicans, including some in leadership, have said they were trying to find alternatives that would stop short of directly threatening a government shutdown, and Republican lawmakers on Sunday talk shows acknowledged that the shutdown threat was a less than ideal approach.
Don’t know if the source is reliable, but I incline to agree with the option. I mean, what are we left with? If we are not satisfied, and what’s more, obviously outraged with what our president is doing, there are quite few ways to change the situation. The impeachment is hardly possible, and to left things as they are and wait patiently for the end of the term is obviously suicidal.
So the Congress is left with this only choice – shut down the government. I wonder, if they are capable of that…
