Boehner Taking Heat from All GOP Sides on Immigration Bill
Conservative values need to rule the day.
Check it out:
Speaker John Boehner is already getting pressured regarding the immigration bill the House will consider when they return on July 10th.
Heritage Action for America and Club for Growth are sending signals to the Speaker they are going to keep him in line. Heritage Action CEO Mike Needham told CQ Roll Call there is “a disconnect” between the GOP leadership “and the conservative voters they allegedly represent.” He went on to say “Our job is to make it impossible for them to get to 218 unless they are doing the right thing.”
Chris Chocola, head of the Club for Growth, said if his group does its job, it will get enough of its endorsed candidates into Congress that “they’ll elect one of their own for leadership.”
Some senators are getting into the mix. Senator David Vitter (R-LA) dismissed this so-called mandate from the Senate to pass similar “reforms” with a tweet that said “Bill supporters fell well short of a vote total in the 70s which they promised so this has no momentum at all in the House.”
