Scandals unite House GOP
Scandalmania has been very good for GOP unity. All Republicans agree what's bad for Obama is very good for them. And Mr. Boehner has been kind enough to only bring the kind of bills to the floor that give the crazy conservatives opportunites to prove their crackpot cred for the folks back home. The question is, how long can it last?
Aware that the unity is fragile, the conservative group Heritage Action for America sent a warning to Boehner and Cantor, urging them to keep the focus on the scandals and “avoid bringing any legislation to the House Floor that could expose or highlight major schisms within the conference.”Good luck with that. Boehner won't be able to avoid real issues like raising the debt limit forever. And just wait until the immigration fight hits the House. GOPers should enjoy their comity while they may.
