The Gang of Eight Immigration Reform (G8) bill is in full-throated national debate.
Breitbart trumpets, “The Wheels Are Coming Off the Bill” while shrieking about “Marco-Phones.” Mark Levin is thumbs down after interviewing Marco Rubio. Ann Coulter calls Rubio a “liar.” Sessions shouts at Schumer in a hearing. Ted Cruz, taking on Rubio mano a mano for 2016, insults Feinstein and plays gotcha with DHS head Napolitano. Today, Cruz released the trial balloons.
But Rand Paul— against a new pathway— supports broad reform while Paul Ryan champions the bill (both on the 2016 short list), the Cato Institute supports and Orrin Hatch came out thumbs up, Grover Norquist is a cheerleader and Sean Hannity says, “create a pathway.” The national GOP is divided, but the bill may stall in the Tea Party House.
