Summer vacation on hold?

June 7, 2018

Apparently the Senate is going to work through it’s summer vacation. The question is, on what?

McConnell says he wants to speed up confirmation of judges while Chuck Schumer says it will be all about healthcare.

Whatever happened to immigration reform?

For some strange reason, Congress just doesn’t appear to want to fix immigration. Indeed Senator John Thune (R-SD)  noted today that the Senate had already spent a week on immigration, but since there was no consensus, continuing to deal with it would be a waste of time.

Gee, a whole week. Wow. The DACA people must be so impressed.

There were four proposals that came out of the House. Couldn’t Congress see which parts of each one of them could be combined into a new bill?

That’s actually how governing is supposed to work, in case anyone is interested.

Every voter seems to agree that legal immigration takes too long, costs too much, and that illegal immigration and smuggling is killing our country.

So why can’t Congress commit to fixing it?

Obviously Democrats don’t want to fix it because they want open borders and the ability to vilify President Trump over it, but why are Republicans so loathe to bring it to the floor?

Most people have an answer to that…no guts.

After all, it is an election year, meaning that no one in Washington wants to stand on principle.

Or maybe they can’t,  because principles are so sorely lacking on the Hill.
