House Republicans are flailing to get on the same page on immigration, as rebellious moderates inch closer toward forcing a vote protecting Dreamers and leaders scramble to stop the intra-party collision. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy warned centrist Republicans in a closed-door meeting Wednesday that their effort to force votes on immigration could cost the party its House majority and empower Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

"With Democratic support, a bipartisan proposal stands a solid chance of passage -- even if a majority of House Republicans vote against them.

Centrists and GOP leaders alike recognize the moderates likely will collect enough signatures eventually to force the issue. All Democrats are expected to sign onto the discharge petition, and enough Republicans are frustrated at the lack of movement to protect Dreamers to put the petition over the top.

Still, Ryan and McCarthy, who met with the president on the matter Tuesday, have tried to persuade members to hold off.

"We don't want to advance something that we know will just get vetoed," Ryan told reporters Wednesday morning.

But you know that all of these liars know what the right thing to do is. Despicable, and if you vote for one of them you are too.

Yeah sure. Just DACA. Not tax cuts for the rich. Not unwavering support for a cruel racist moronic criminal leader. Not taking health care from the sick. Not thinly veiled white supremacy. Just DACA. That's all people are angry about.

Sayonara sucker.

So let's see, we can either do the right thing, or, hold on to power. Gee. I wonder which of the two the Republicans will choose?

I honestly don't believe that most Americans care about anyone but themselves. This is a non-issue.
