Yup quality Bills like repeal the ACA 50+ times, or other Republican nonsence. How about some bills that will pass the senate. Maybe work on the compromise as required by Const. when both the Senate and House pass different bills on same supject, coming together as it goes.

It's not congress' job to do what the president wants.

Well I hope you are consistent when there is a {R} president taking executive action due to congressional deadlock. Will you be?

I miss the rule of law. Once it collapses completely, even most liberals will miss it too.

What is it that you would like congress to do to deter more illegal immigration? We already have laws on the books that aren't being enforced. The only job I don't see them doing is not insisting that they be enforced.

Immigration bills have been passed and sent to the Senate. Ask Reid why he won't bring them up for vote.

Just because Obama doesn't agree with the bills passed doesn't mean that none were passed. This is once again Obama lying. His my way or the highway attitude is what the problem really is.

Same old song & dance

Barack Hussein Obama has once again prover that not only is he a slow learner
but the presidential training program has a few issues

He had a once in a lifetime opportunity, and blew it !

' Unaccountable FOOL' at America's expense. He pointed out more then once that he was a total newcomer and had absolutely no experience at anything except community organizing, AND people said it didn't matter. This is what happens when you vote for the color of his skin and not his character.

ILLEGAL Alien's, Democrat's top supporters.

Obama isn't the one saying he won't work with them? The house could craft their on bill and work it out with the Senate. Just do something instead of doing absolutely nothing. At least Harry Reid isn't a weak leader like John Boehner.

Yes I will if the said congress at the time will be doing absolutely nothing in Washington. They are their to do a job. Not sit down and do nothing. And to think they go on vacation...for what? They are doing nothing. Such inactivity should make people as upset as I am. If a Republican president does takes executive action then whether I agree with it or not I will understand why he is doing it. This congress is a load of crap.

Passing an amnesty bill will do nothing about illegals coming here.

We already had an immigration reform bill that legalized the illegals in America with promises to clamp down on border control so this would never happen again.

Regan's amnesty was for less then 800,000. Nearly 3 million applied.
Now we have 30 million (the probability of 11 million staying static for over 10 years is astronomical).

Reports say over 500,000 a year come here riding "The beast".
In a 10 year period that's 5 million.
