House Democrats released their own comprehensive immigration proposal Wednesday, hoping to keep pressure on Republicans to move forward on stalled plans to overhaul the nation's border control laws.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and several other Democrats announced the plans at a news conference on Capitol Hill on a day when nearly all the focus was on the budget fight and government shutdown. The lawmakers emphasized that immigration remains an imperative issue and hoped that the House's GOP leadership would put legislation forward for a vote before the end of the year.

    I was thinking about this the other day. How about this scenario: Lets give the Republicans what they want and defund the ACA, in return, Democrats can use the immigration and gun law reform bills as leverage. Then, when Republicans think they won the battle, they will be voted out of office in 2014 due to people believing it was Republicans who stole their right to healthcare. See, there’s a plan, let’s make it happen.
