Bipartisanship on Amnesty: The Poison Pill

Over the last few weeks, pressure has built on the House to pass the Senate’s amnesty bill. So far, Speaker Boehner is holding strong on not even considering the bill, favoring smaller, more concise bills rather than the Obamacare style bill passed by the Senate: House Speaker John Boehner is sticking to his position: The House will not vote on the Senate-passed immigration bill. “I’ve made it clear and I’ll make it clear again, the House does not intend to take up the Senate bill,” Boehner said Monday. “The House is going to do its own job in developing an immigration bill.” Senate Majority Leader Reid is, of course, declaring that ...

Help after Hurricane Sandy

Over the last two days, Hurricane Sandy has hit the North Atlantic seaboard hard. More than 30 people have died, and at least six million people are without power.

Thank you.
