Harry Reid Blocks House Consideration of Senate Amnesty Bill

Today is the one-year anniversary of Senate passage of S 744, the "comprehensive immigration reform bill" supported by Obama.  Amnesty supporters have criticized the House for failing to pass the bill, but they have failed to mention one key point -- the bill has never been sent to the House.  It still sits in the Senate clerk's office.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has held the bill in the Senate because he knows it is unconstitutional.  S 744 includes revenue increases, which the Constitution says must originate in the House.  (An ObamaCare lawsuit on this point is now before the Federal courts.)

So liberals are criticizing the House for failing to pass a bill which has never reached them, and which is patently unconstitutional.
