He really is a special kind of asshole. It’s that kind of shit that makes me resent the hell out of the whole both parties are just as bad crap.

The GOP can’t even pass an incredibly moderate, military-service-path-to-citizenship immigration bill.

Rep. Jeff Denham labeled his bill the ENLIST Act and said he would seek a vote as an amendment to the popular annual defense bill, the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA.

In response, Doug Heye, spokesman for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, said: “No proposed ENLIST amendments to NDAA will be made in order.”

Heye said no stand-alone vote on the measure would be permitted, either.
When the Associated Press asked House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) office whether the Speaker agrees with Cantor’s decision, Boehner’s spokesperson said the GOP leadership is on the same page.

And with that, a sensible bill with broad support, which would bolster the military, support immigrants, and honor American traditions, is dead - because Heritage Action and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) deemed the proposal unacceptable.
