WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) showed no signs Wednesday of wavering on immigration measures in the funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, even after GOP leaders in the Senate conceded they couldn't get the House-passed legislation through the upper chamber.

"The House has done its job," Boehner said at a press conference after he met with House Republican members. "Why don't you go ask the Senate Democrats when they're going to get off their ass and do something other than to vote no?"

Interesting tactic: Accuse the other party of exactly what you've been doing. That only works with folks who are highly partisan and/or have short memories.

Sooo, you expected Reid to waste time on rightwing House shit that President Obama would not sign? Let the NEW Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell take care of those bills. Funny...

So we will get a series of short extensions on Homeland Security rather than the GOP risk getting hammered for shutting down the government again.

The last time that happened, the TP and far right candidates were slaughtered in the primaries.

Hmmm. More mainstream GOP elected. Good deal.

"discrebe"

Intergalactic Translator, 2257, Gold Edition:

Discrebe (n): mentally ill Right-Wing troll with a strong tendency to have a stiffly outstretched right hand.
discrebe (v-t): the act of stiffly outstretching a right hand in the form of a fascist salute, resultant of a Right-Wing mental illness.

Next...

Now, on to the OP:

From the OP link:

The House passed a $39.7 billion funding bill for DHS last month, paired with amendments to limit President Barack Obama's executive actions on immigration. Many Republicans say they will not support any DHS funding bill that does not include those measures, because they do not want to let actions stand that they say are unconstitutional.

Obama has said multiple times that he would veto legislation like the House's bill to block his immigration programs, which the White House contends are well within his authority.

Senate Democrats have stuck together to oppose the House's immigration bill, andvoted three times last week to block the legislation from moving forward. They say they want a "clean" bill, free of immigration measures, and then are happy to debate the executive actions later.

Which part of "clean bill" did you not understand?

One possible scenario. Could happen, indeed.

Any thing that removes more far right reactionary drones with values for an anti-American agenda.

The more mainstream GOP candidates we elect in 2016 the better.

The irony is just waaaay toooo thick.
Indeed.

Buy, hey. Don't be using the same measuring stick the Right's been using all this time. That would be unfair! :badgrin:
It's not exactly a direct comparison. The gop continues to vote "no" to doing something by attempting to defund it. The dems in the senate are saying no to defunding Obama's immigration changes.
