Obama Enters 112th With Little GOP Support For Dream Act

December 23, 2010

Four of the outgoing House Republicans will be replaced by prospective Dream Act allies. Gowdy and Amash will likely be tougher sells as both received heavy Tea Party backing during their campaigns.

As for Obama's own party, 17 out of 38 House Democrats that voted against the Dream Act will not be returning to Congress. Of the seven Democrats who missed the Dec. 8 vote, four either are retiring or lost re-election runs of their own.

That means there will likely be less resistance from the House Democratic caucus to the Dream Act during the next Congress. However, Obama will will still need to pick up at least 40 House Republicans to pass the Dream Act if the remaining 21 Democratic opponents do not back the bill again. That, of course, assumes Republican leadership even allows a vote on the Dream Act in the first place.
