Boehner In Bed With Top Obama Apparatchik?

Obama minion Valerie Jarrett wasted no time telling these liberal hot-shots with deep pockets, who were assembled in Las Vegas, that a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens is going to happen and that John Boehner is fully onboard.

(Las Vegas Review Journal) President Barack Obama’s senior adviser [Valerie Jarrett] on Thursday told a conference of investors and elite political donors in Las Vegas that the White House believes it can get Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform this summer.

As for hot-button issues such as raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour and gun control, Jarrett said the White House will go around Congress and work “city by city and state by state” if Republicans don’t cooperate.

"If we can’t get it done in Washington, we’re going to get it done at the local level," Jarrett said. “Collectively we can make a huge difference.”

Jarrett was speaking to the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference, which holds a yearly conference of hedge fund managers, political and business leaders and celebrities.

Most of the invitation-only event’s forums are off the record so participants — about 1,800 this year at the Bellagio — can speak freely.

On comprehensive immigration reform, the Democratic-controlled U.S. Senate has passed a bill to provide a path to American citizenship for 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has told the administration he would like to see immigration reform pass as well, Jarrett said, although plenty of GOP caucus members are against the Senate bill, particularly those aligned with the conservative tea party movement.
