President Obama says he wants a bipartisan compromise on the DREAM bill:
‘No’ is not an option. I want to sign the DREAM Act into law. I’ve got the pens all ready. I’m willing to work with anybody who is serious to get this done, and to achieve bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform that solves this challenge once and for all.
But when there is a bipartisan compromise on the table, authored by Marco Rubio, he wants nothing to do with it.
He’d rather have a campaign issue than a compromise. Will it work for him to blast Republicans for blocking the bill when his own administration has become its main obstacle? We shall see.
