Obama Inspires GOP Congressman to Drop Immigration Reform
About time he woke up.
Check it out:
GOP Congressman no longer open to immigration deal, citing Obama’s winner-take-all approach to governance.
Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), the vice chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, has changed his mind and now opposes any efforts to grant amnesty to America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants. Poe said his stance is a specifically a result of President Barack Obama’s style of dealing with congressional Republicans during the recent government shutdown and debt ceiling battles.
“The President has proven over the last few weeks that ‘negotiating’ means conservatives must give in and that it’s his way or no way,” Poe said in an email to Breitbart News. “In his opinion, there is no compromise, just intimidation with inflammatory rhetoric. The President is putting his political agenda ahead of what’s best for America.”
“He wants to do what’s best for his legacy,” the Congressman said of the President. “Conservatives want to do what’s best for our nation.”
