GOP leaders couldn’t deliver on the minimum requirements necessary for governing. What the president is doing now on immigration is going one step further. He’s embracing a strategy that posits that progress doesn’t come through cajoling, speechmaking, or refusing to budge, as he did during the debt ceiling debate during the shutdown; instead, you have to punch them in the nose. It’s an approach that is bigger and more confrontational than the minimum wage workarounds or Environmental Protection Agency regulations. He once promised to use his pen to make progress; now he’s wielding it as a weapon.
This, say the president’s aides, is the only way to proceed when faced with Republicans who refuse to act on immigration reform. The GOP has had years to make progress and has failed to do so. Marco Rubio, the Republican senator who pushed a comprehensive solution, now feels like a remote participant in the conversation and House Speaker John Boehner wouldn’t raise a bipartisan Senate bill in the House for fear of having an election-year crackup over policy details. That dynamic hasn’t changed, so the president is moving forward.
Obama once promised to use his pen to make progress; now he’s wielding it as a weapon.
Apparently, he’s learned that the best way to avoid becoming a lame duck is with your fists.
Chiropractic neurology diagnosed him, so you got a problem with that?
A rescission bill would be drafted which yanked back certain money from the president's control -- money already appropriated. This is the definition of rescission: snipping away at budgets already in place. The Tea Partiers could run amok and de-fund everything they don't like in Obama's agenda. They'd be running amok while holding a pair of rescissors, so to speak.
At heart, the idea's pretty silly, when it comes to immigration. On Obamacare, for instance, a rescission bill could do major damage to an Obama program. But on immigration, the way the Tea Partiers would be protesting would be to zero out the budget for things like the Border Patrol. How is that going to achieve their aims? Furloughing all the agents along the border doesn't solve any problem at all, but being illogical has never stopped Tea Partiers before.
But the main thing is that it would all be a giant exercise in blowing hot air. Nothing would result from the effort. The government wouldn't shut down. The budget would remain in place. Why? Because any rescission bill needs to be signed into law by the president. Which he just isn't going to do. This is why it's such a brilliant idea -- because at the end of the day, after all the shouting's done, it would have precisely zero effect on the full faith and credit of the United States of America.
This is the brilliant part about the rescission tactic. The Republican leadership will pass a budget bill in the next few weeks, with some Democratic help, and then everyone can go home for the holidays. When the new Congress convenes next year, the Tea Partiers can rant and rave and have the biggest dog-and-pony show for the media that they can manage. They'll spend weeks and weeks letting off steam, and they'll whip themselves into a rescission frenzy. They will terrify their fellow Republicans (with threats of primary challenges to come), who will likely wind up voting for the rescission bill. They will triumphantly place this rescission bill on President Obama's desk, with the cameras rolling and lots of talk of the importance of their actions. And then President Obama will veto it.
attach some wind, solar, battery, biofule, ethanol...stuff to it.............it not hard folks, make some sausage..
you know as in " cut me some slack" Conservatives need to Cut Obama some..........OK?
"Klaatu barada nikto" it seemed to work before.........

A math test, a much better indicator of intelligence: Questions could be : will cutting taxes increase or decrease the deficit, Question 2, do you vote for people how whine incessently about deficits, but then they turn around and do things to increase it?.........
they WILL INCREASE spending.......military, Iraq, Border security..........and they will cut taxes.......so what happens when you do that?
yea the republicans....they will decide.....how will they decide.....they will spend money- lots of it......they will not increase taxes so, they will increase the deficit.........thats what they do, unfunded things.
Cruz — who already functioned as a de facto Speaker of the House during the debt limit showdown, leveraging the Tea Party wing against Speaker John Boehner — has grand plans, such as passing bills to repeal Obamacare (a take so fresh it's steaming), then after Obama vetoes that, passing bills to repeal individual parts of Obamacare, one by one. In addition, he plans to hold lots of meaningless investigative committees into presidential abuses of power, all of which he knows to be legal #$%$ thanks to his law degree from an Ivy League school better than whatever #$%$ one you went to. Still, they'll burnish his reputation as Tailgunner Ted and distract attention from Darrell Issa's Committee on Accidentally Getting Stuck In A Chinese Finger Trap.
Seal the border right? Have to fix the border FIRST right..........that means spending money, the border doesn't suddenely "seal itself"..........wall cost money.........course they want tax cuts too, so DEFICIT will go up, because of republicans........
