Is immigration reform the Obamacare of vulnerable, incumbent Republicans in 2014? Just as incumbent Democratic senators up for reelection this year have been distancing themselves from the president and the travesty that has become Obamacare, immigration reform may pose a similar problem for Republicans facing primary opponents. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has stated that there won't be immigration reform in 2014—luckily for him, the year he’s up for reelection:
I think we have an irresolvable conflict here. The Senate insists on comprehensive. The House says it won’t go to conference with the Senate on comprehensive and wants to look at step-by-step.
CNN adds that McConnell “did not take a position on the GOP outline.”
