Default No House for Democrats = No CIR

If Republicans control the House, they will be too bitter because they can't repeal the Health Care Reform, and will not let CIR pass in 2011. Best hope is 2012 now. Obama could have easily passed CIR in past 2 years, instead he focused all his efforts on health care..

Atleast for me there is no hope for CIR, Peicemeal seems a best option, recently there was a WSJ report that President had agreed for piecemeal if CIR doesnt pass... but we need to be very very watchful...

after Healthcare experience there is little chance any big legislation will pass in this country we need people who care about country and would like to work with other end both sides seems either too liberal or conservative which is only good in winning elections...

Dems were no good either...they could have easily worked with Bush to pass it in 2006/2007 but, they screwed it up by going with the points system and the "path to citizenship". Again, in 2008 they had all 3 chambers but, the hispanic caucus held the bill hostage. CIR will never get passed as long as there is that "path to citizenship" provision, in the upcoming congress. So, in reality, there is no CIR...now or ever.

Thank God Dems are out otherwise Legals will never get anything till every illegal crossing the border is ahead of them. Democrats are only good for three kind of people:

Illegals
Illegals
Illegals

I hope Obama looses soon and we have some sanity of law

Sen Reid and Grassley win. I was hoping they would lose badly.

I have nothing to say about the dems in particular...........however, you are being extremely short sighted if you want Obama to loose. He is driving this country in the right direction, and you go with any republican who just talks nonsense of tax cut and national security, you may have a green card or even citizenship - and your children will be wishing to go to another country as there are no opportunities here!

lets stop this rhetoric on repubs, what about bobby jindal, marco rubio & nick haley and plz don't give explanations to distort the reality, many in the republicans sincerely support legal immigration, tell me few good things dems did to legal immigrants, aint regan the one who gave amnesty to illegals in 80s, aint bush the one who tried more than once to pass CIR, who opposed h1b fee increase recently?

i disagree with you, i love obama the candidate, but since then he did little to merit his election, so howz health care gonna help ppl who have no job in the first place, stimulus was a colossal failure by any standard, he referred republicans as "enemies", howz that for a "change" in dc? we all know this country needs innovation but therz no significant increase in R&D under his presidency, i love some of his decisions but saying he is taking country in the right direction and there is no republican who can do that is not true,

he is too left, we need a leader who does not lean left or right

Possibility of CIR happening diminishes each day passing by and as always every one acknowledge Immigration Reform as an important issue, but the reality, it is not as important as the other issues, economy, jobs, housing crisis, etc .

Only window the Democrats have to do something about CIR is in the lame duck session, but it is easy said than done and could cause a deep divide among the parties that already have a bitter relation. If not in lame-duck session, then nothing untill after 2012 election.. that pushes to 2013.

One of the promise Obama ran the first presidential election on was CIR and if none is done on that, he probably should write off the Latino votes, without which he cannot win again. Also getting a CIR through the Republican controlled house, that the Senate also agrees on -- don't think it will happen and well.. Also time now is to plan on re-election strategy for 2012 election for Obama and team.

Only slim chance is before this congress term ends and not sure, if they can get something through. There is a very slim chance it might occur.. but again Media and special interest groups could blow it up too...

Will have to see how it goes.. or if the blame game / finger pointing keeps continuing...
