House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said Thursday that if the Congressional Budget Office is right about immigration legislation, the reform would be "a real boon" for the country.
"I haven't studied the report... It is kind of interesting though that they used dynamic scoring, something we've been urging them to do for a long time," Boehner said. "If in fact those numbers are anywhere close to being accurate, it would be a real boon for the country."
He said he has asked House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) to look at the CBO report, which found that the Senate gang of eight legislation would reduce the deficit by $197 billion over 10 years.
"Regardless of what the Senate does, the House is going to work its will," he said.
Boehner dodged several questions about whether he supports a pathway to citizenship, saying it's not his job to impose his will on the other 434 House members.

If you look through the past whenever populations didn't continue to grow at a fast rate there was misery. A giant influx of new citizens would be a huge boost to the U.S. economy. We should be welcoming people to this country with open arms.

Bill Ayers had nothing to do with that. He was against action that would hurt people.
Why dio you right whiners have to lie about this. Are you all that desperate that you need to lie about Bill Ayers?
Really?
And that's why he's a communist, supporting the three worst mass murderers in the history of civilization.
The statistically all-time worst mass murderer is Ho Chi Minh, murdering over 12 percent of the population under his control
Numerically Mao is the worst mass murderer in the history of civilization, with the lowest estimate being about 40 millioin and the highest estimate being about 60 million people murdered.
Number three is Joseph Stalin, with 10 to 30 million corpses on his score card.

If you noticed, William Ayers' role models are the worst mass murderers in history.
Also, if you noticed, Hitler didn't even make the list of the top three.

So...(if A=B, and B=C... yadda yadda)
William Ayers belongs to a group of people worse than Hitler and the German Nazis.

Where the hell did you come up with some outright bullshit like "He was against action that would hurt people."
He's a goddam terrorist who supported the worst mass murderers in the history of civilization.

West Virginia residents have the lowest overall wellbeing for the fourth year in a row, with a Well-Being Index score of 61.3 in 2012 -- slightly lower than the 62.3 in 2011.

You got any more sh!t you wanna' pull outa' your ass right now? LMAO@U
Survey? really?
These state-level data are based on daily surveys conducted from January through December 2012, including interviews with more than 350,000 Americans nationwide and at least 1,000 residents in each state except Alaska and Hawaii.

So what do you think? they talked to 6 people in Hawai'i? maybe 10? ROTFLMAO. Hawai'i also has the third highest homeless rate in the country--wonder how those people are doing?

Want to know the REAL platform for the Democrats in 2016?

"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

"It's time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, and for the few...... And to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity."

"(We).....can't just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people."

"I certainly think the free-market has failed."

"I think it's time to send a clear message to what has become the most profitable sector in (the) entire economy that they are being watched."

Who said that?

Hillary was a much stronger candidate in 2008, running against an unknown, and crashed and burned.
2016 will be no different. When Organizing For America gets behind its candidate, Hillary will slink away.
That's not true and you know it. Barack Obama won a slim victory over Hillary in the 2008 democrat primaries--so close in fact that McCain tried to steal Hillary's blue collar Northeast campaign strategy and use it for his own advantage by picking Sarah Palin as his running mate. Further , Barack Obama's advantage over Hillary were so slim that he chose working class hero politician Joe Biden for his running mate and the working class women with family hero ,Hillary for his Chief Diplomat post.
