Not since Todd Akin’s comments about rape and pregnancy has the Conservatism Inc. Establishment targeted a Republican as they have immigration patriot Rep. Steve King R.-Iowa). In fact, Salon has actually dubbed King “The Todd Akin of immigration” [By Alex Seitz-Wald, July 26, 2013]
This has disrupted (good!) the GOP House Leadership sly promotion of the so-called KIDS Act, which is basically the DREAM Act, under a different name from the bill that all but eight Republicans, only two of whom are currently in Congress, voted against in 2010. It’s final proof that House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor are simply on the wrong/ Chamber of Commerce side of the immigration issue and are looking for ways to sneak this year’s Amnesty/ Immigration Surge legislation past their caucus.
