Heritage Action: Boehner picks fight to clear way for immigration

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is picking a fight with outside conservative groups to clear the way for immigration reform, Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham charged on Friday.

“The Speaker is trying to turn this into a boring fight between outside groups and himself so we are not having a policy debate about whether or not this is a good deal,” Needham said of the budget deal approve by the House on Thursday.

He said Boehner wanted to divert attention from the substance of the two-year budget deal by picking the fight.

“This deal increases spending, this deal increases taxes. And that is bad for the county and that is what we want to be focused on,” Needham added in an interview on MSNBC. “The speaker also wants to clear the way for immigration reform next year.”

    it is not a deal, it is a sellout

    We must do whatever it takes to stop amnesty and immigration increases.

    Well, it looks like big business has Boehner in their pocket. No wonder he is trying to pass immigration!

  • Brer_Rabbit says:

    Boehner should thank the tea party conservatives for taking the House and allowing him to be Speaker. If it weren’t for the election of these conservatives in 2010 & 2012 Nancy Polosi would still be running the House with a liberal democratic fist. Gridlock in our government is the best that we can get at this time. Don’t forget how Polosi, Reid, and Obama ran the government.

  • Smeethow says:

    Boehner needs to change his party to democrat since he gets more of their stuff passed than he does the grass-roots that voted for him and the rest of the wobbly republicans. Time to clean the house

    I am ready for a fight with Boehner and the rest of the Progressive/Establishment GOP. We conservatives either need to boot the Boehner’s, McCain’s and McConnell’s out of the GOP, or start a party of our own!!! This “compromising” craps only make the GOP appear to be weak and damages the country!
