    I don't know, may House Democrats don't like the policies being considered. Maybe Boehner knew his bills were DOA in the Senate with Senator NO as majority leader.

    That, I believe, is the plan.

    And the new congress is to start bundling, putting stuff Obama wants in with what he has to veto......he either reverses himself or obstructs.....all of which becomes an election issue Hillary will have to account for

    The Demos won't like it.....but tell them to man up. Is it about the people or their party's political aspiration? That's how the Repubs should set the argument up with all those That came here legally and followed the Law to gain their status and their Rights.


    BREAKING: Amnesty Executive Order Announcement Coming Thursday in Prime Time Address

    UPDATE: This could get awkward. JUST IN: Obama has invited senior lawmakers to dinner tonight at the White House to explain his #immigration decision, several aides say.

    UPDATE: By the way, the Washington Post editorial board has already advised against this course of action. Oh well.

    UPDATE: Republicans will not be attending the White House dinner tonight after all. Confirmed: Obama didn't invite top GOP leaders to attend his #immigration dinner tonight with senior Democrats.....snip~

    Looks like the Repubs are.



    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) suggests ways congressional Republicans can respond:

    If the President announces executive amnesty, the new Senate Majority Leader who takes over in January should announce that the 114th Congress will not confirm a single nominee—executive or judicial—outside of vital national security positions, so long as the illegal amnesty persists.

    This is a potent tool given to Congress by the Constitution explicitly to act as a check on executive power. It is a constitutional power of the Majority Leader alone, and it would serve as a significant deterrent to a lawless President. Additionally, the new Congress should exercise the power of the purse by passing individual appropriations bills authorizing critical functions of government and attaching riders to strip the authority from the president to grant amnesty.....snip~

    Re: President Obama to announce executive action on immigration Thursday

    The House has had over a year-and-a-half to work on immigration reform since the bi-partisan Sen. Rubio Act was passed.
    Don't like it--pass your own Act--then go to Joint Conference--that is the Constitutional way.
    And we all know the GOP is the party of the Constitution .
