Gang of Seven Bill Appears Dead

Rate this Entry
Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and two Republicans on the bipartisan House Gang of Seven publicly acknowledged today that work on the Gang of Seven bill has stopped and they are not moving forward. Gutierrez blamed Speaker Boehner and other Republican leaders for not giving Republicans any support. Representatives Carter and Johnson, the two GO7 Republicans noted above, blamed President Obama (thought the logic is pretty flimsy). The reality may be something else. This could mean that the House piecemeal strategy is looking better to move forward. The bipartisan bill was mainly seen as a backup in case the other approach fails. It might also mean that the bill simply will lie dormant and could come back to life if the Judiciary Committee bills fail.

    Two words: Ken Cuccinelli. If he wins all bets are off. If he looses and takes down the lt. gov and AG candidates the chances of it passing this congress are 50-50.
