It's like Obamacare and Obama wants the House Republicans to pass it before they know what's in it. The Democrats were comfortable doing that with Obamacare. The Republicans won't do that with immigration reform.

    Yes, everyone knows that complex problems have simple solutions.

    That's the problem.

    It wants to fix everything and ends up fixing nothing. Just like what Obamacare did for health care reform.

    Yes, it's terrible to try to fix more than one problem at a time.

    Well, I know you want to go on and on and on with your snappy rejoinders, but I just got home from Thanksgiving dinner and I'm going to take a nap. You'll just have to find someone else to spar with. Sorry about that. (but I'm not really sorry, you know)
