The TP Caucus in the House will never support a bill intended to fix Sec. 4 of the VRA because it’s in their best interest not to. The TP Caucus will put so much pressure on Boehner not to act that he’ll most likely cave to their demands for fear that if he does act, they’ll take away his speakership.

I don’t agree on that last. If modernized Section 4 gained public traction, then Boehner might well send it to the floor anyways, to avoid getting tarred as a racist. He values being Speaker, but its not the be-all and end-all to him.

I hope you’d be correct about Boehner, especially about this. However, I’m not going to hold my breath, because I know how craven and cowardly he has been in regards to the TP caucus to this point.
