Jindal tells GOP Congress to 'grow a spine' on DHS funding
OXON HILL, MD - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has a message for fellow Republicans who control Congress: "Grow a spine."
Jindal spoke critically of his party's leaders in Washington on Thursday during a turn before the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. As he spoke to CPAC, House Republicans were considering a short-term funding fix to prevent a partial shutdown of the Homeland Security Department.
Republicans initially linked Homeland Security funding with blocking President Barack Obama's executive orders on immigration. However, it appears that Republicans in Congress are considering backing away from that.
Jindal says Republicans kept control of the House and captured the majority in the Senate on a pledge to block Obama's immigration plans. He says it's time for Republicans to deliver on that promise and not compromise.
