The GOP just isn't capable of pulling something off like that

It's been pretty obvious that comprehensive immigration reform is effectively dead and will stay on the back-burner until the next time that the GOP gets its ass kicked on election day because Hispanics hate them. Which means we can all go back to ignoring this issue until possibly late 2014, but more likely late 2016. The Republicans just have more important stuff to do, like endlessly passing meaningless repeals of Obamacare and attacking each other in pursuit of a doomed self-destructive legislative strategy.

Related: I'm beginning to agree that even if the ACA does not "work" in the sense of improving the health care system, it still will have been worth it just by giving the Republican Party the opportunity to completely lose their shit and tear themselves apart.
