Rubio needs House to kill Gang of Eight bill
There is no doubt that Sen. Marco Rubio’s, R-Fla., decision to get into bed with Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on immigration has significantly hurt his chances of becoming the Republican presidential nominee. Not fatally hurt, but definitely hurt.The bill is a disaster, that is typical for the monstrosities put together by Democrats in the Senate. The only way they can get many of their own party to vote for it is by loading it up with Pork. The House will have some common sense immigration bills that will be opposed by Democrats which will mean they will lose the issue they hoped to create, but I think Rubio will still be mortally wounded on the national stage.
He has gone from first to fourth in polls of Iowa Republicans and his support nationally has been cut in half.
