Looks like Rep. Newhouse (July 2) is taking his cue from the president that it's ok to lie to his constituents and try to blame the Democrats for failing to pass any immigration laws. First of all, the Republicans hold the majority, they couldn't even get their own party to all agree with what they were trying to pass. Second, the Democrats are not included in any of the discussions. His caucus likes to meet behind close doors with party members only. Democrats won't vote yes on something without knowing what is in it, unlike the Republicans who will vote yes on anything put forth for a win, regardless of whether they have read it, like their tax cut passed in December.
