    McConnell needs to do what dingy Harry did. Change the rules and pass the House bill with 51 votes. Then Obumma can veto it and take another whack at the nations security.

    The Wall Street Journal, the source here, is the voice of the country club joining with the US Chamber of Commerce in demanding more cheap Mexican workers. Why raise wages when Mexicans will work cheap keeping the country club looking good?

    When Boehner went ahead and reached a budgetary agreement on spending with the lame-duck Democratic controlled House back in December, he basically gift-wrapped 2015 and gave it to them.

    He should have done an emergency funding to keep the government running until the new GOP majority was seated in Congress and then do some real spending cuts and deal with the immigration executive orders. But NO...

    Exactly! The GOP needs to dump Boehner.
