Republicans are looking to pass a short-term spending bill extension that withholds funds needed to implement Obama's executive amnesty.
O says he will veto
President Obama will block 2015 funding for the Department of Homeland Security if Republicans include spending curbs on the president’s executive amnesty, says senior Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer.
In a Dec. 29 interview with the Huffington Post, Pfeiffer said Obama would not sign a 2015 spending bill that would include limits on spending for the president's executive amnesty efforts.
Pfeiffer said Obama would veto such a bill and "used the Huffington Post’s softball interview to prod the GOP leadership toward backing away from a fight over amnesty," according to the Daily Caller.
"I think the Republicans know they have little to no leverage," Pfeiffer said. "Are they going to shut down the Department of Homeland Security to undo our executive action? I don’t think they are going to do that."
