That seems to be the crux of the argument from Republican Savior Marco Rubio:
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) said that President Obama’s handling of the 16-day government shutdown has made the path to reforming the country’s immigration system more difficult.
Republicans’ lack of trust for the president, Rubio said on “Fox News Sunday,” makes the prospect of a final bill bleaker than ever.
“The president has undermined this effort,” he said.
“I certainly think that immigration reform is a lot harder to achieve today than it was just three weeks ago,” he added.
Seriously? Is that the best he can do? Certainly they can come up with a better excuse for killing the bill that they had no intention of passing in the first place.
