Mr. Boehner says the rich pay enough taxes, and it’s wrong for the president to “pit one set of Americans against another.”
The Republican speaker and Democratic president played a round of golf together last summer in a mostly futile effort to bridge the ever-widening gap between the two political parties.
Immigration a focus of state recall vote
MESA | The architect of the groundbreaking Arizona immigration law that thrust the issue into the national political debate faces a recall election Tuesday likely to be viewed as a referendum on the state’s hard-line immigration policies.
The effort to oust Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce has transformed a normally quiet legislative district in a Phoenix suburb into a closely watched battleground on immigration that also features issues such as school funding cuts and state mandates on local governments.
People on both sides of the debate think that removing Mr. Pearce would send a powerful message to the Legislature that uncompromising stands on immigration and other issues will not be tolerated by voters.
On the flip side, a Pearce victory will say a tough stance on illegal immigration is just what voters demand.
