Discussion: One Year Later, Obama Bashes House GOP For Stonewalling On Immigration

Discussion for article #221384

He needs to stick with this attack and ramp it up. A friend of mine who is very much an Obama supporter expressed disappointment that he hadn’t done more on immigration, that he hadn’t gotten anything passed. I explained to her that a comprehensive immigration bill did pass the Senate and with Republican support but that Boehner refuses to take up the bill in the House and that there’s essentially nothing Obama can do outside of putting pressure on Boehner. She had completely forgotten about all of that. I suspect she’s not alone.
