They support deportation of the eleven to fourteen million illegal immigrants, and prosecution of employers who hired illegals. Job shortages replaced with labor shortages that would drive up wages.

With Rubio being the point man for the GOP, tea party and wealthy business community he will play 'stall ball' for as long as he can and then at the last minute throw in an 'irrelevant detail'...to keep anything consequential from happening. And in the long run...the GOP will pay 'dearly' for another 'disingenuous maneuver'. Here is what I see happening.

The reason is simple enough. If it becomes law, it will vaguely resemble an Obama achievement and much of the GOP is fully committed to preventing that from happening. On the other hand, if the zealots on the right allow Schumer and the rest of the Gang to trumpet a deal, and then walk away at the last minute, it will vaguely resemble an Obama failure. And that's the whole point, isn't it? Of course it’s not yet a “done deal” — and if history is any guide, it never will be.

They want a cheap labor pool. The unions just negoitiated that these wrokers should be paid the minimum wage and allowed to join the unions which detracts from that cheap labor pool. They know the republican business community won't let that happen. Wlill see if the Chamber of Commerce lets anything pass Congress, I doubt it.
