Senator Marco Rubio’s plan to shut down the government if Congress doesn’t defund the Affordable Care Act is going up in smoke in the nation’s capital.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio and a group of GOP Senators are prepared to bankrupt the United States and possibly plunge the world into a depression if they don’t get their way to defund the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Senator Marco Rubio is prepared to shut down the United States government if the Affordable Care Act isn’t completely defunded by any short-term budget agreement.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio angered much of his conservative base by actively pushing bipartisan immigration reform. But now, he may be ready to give political red meat to the voters he alienated by introducing a far-reaching abortion ban in the Senate.
Immigration reform has been one of the hot-button topics for politicians in the last few years. As the Senate passed its version of immigration reform last week, all attention now turns to the House of Representatives and the rift developing in the Republican Party.
Ronald Reagan used to tout the 11th Commandment, “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Rebublican.” Based on tea party hero Sarah Palin’s latest tweet, she may need to go back to learn that idea again.
The Democratic-controlled United States Senate overwhelmingly passed an immigration reform bill Thursday that could impact more than 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. But, the massive reform may never get to President Barack Obama’s desk.
Even if Republican Senator Marco Rubio and the bipartisan Gang of Eight Senators can muster the support needed to pass comprehensive immigration reform through the Senate; it’s possibly dead on arrival in the GOP-led House of Representatives.
The prospects for comprehensive immigration reform passing both the Democratically-led Senate and the Republican-led House of Representatives continue to shrink with each passing day.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio may be looking for an escape hatch from the bipartisan immigration reform he helped put together as a member of the Gang of Eight in the U.S. Senate.
