Ryan Wants Immigration Vote Despite Hastert Rule

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) made a little-noticed pronouncement at a town hall meeting last week "that could have major implications for the prospects of immigration reform passing the House of Representatives," reports Think Progress.

He said he wanted a vote on the legislation regardless of the "Hastert rule" which says that the GOP leadership should only bring bills up for a vote which are supported by the majority of Republicans.

Said Ryan: "We don't know if we have a majority until we vote on it."
