You know the interesting thing about us picking ... the $50 billion fund is that it plays right into the hands of the administration, because they dont want this $50 billion fund, Corker said. What they want to do is come right back around and tax the banks, and if theres a $50 billion pre-fund, it keeps them from being able to do it. So I dont understand why our line of attack has been over that fund.
Corker said he is content to stick with his fellow Republicans against the bill as long as he feels both sides continue working toward a bipartisan deal that he can fully support.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
