Another Republican Threatens Government Shutdown
[su_right_ad]Marco Rubio hinted at it, and now Iowa Congressman Steve King does more than hint. Since this worked out so well for Republicans last time, it surely makes sense they think it will work the next time.
King, R-Kiron, said “all bets are off” on a continuing resolution if President Barack Obama follows through with reported plans to deal with immigration issues without Congress.
“If the president wields his pen and commits that unconstitutional act to legalize millions, I think that becomes something that is nearly political nuclear …,” King said. “I think the public would be mobilized and galvanized and that changes the dynamic of any continuing resolution and how we might deal with that.”
King said if that happens, House-passed legislation on border security, including rolling back the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA order, “becomes a requirement” for a continuing resolution.[su_sky_ad]
