FIREBAUGH, Calif. - Standing Friday afternoon on cracked, parched earth where melons would usually grow, President Obama brought both a message of aid and an ominous warning to drought-stricken California as he outlined more than $160 million in federal assistance. The directives include aid for ranchers struggling to feed their livestock because of the drought, and for food banks serving families in hard-hit areas. Obama also called on U.S. government facilities in California to curb water use. "These actions will help.

One is that the drought focuses the minds of political leaders and water users, prompting them to come together to craft a broad, comprehensive solution to a problem that won't be going away.

House Speaker John A. Boehner this week effectively declared immigration reform dead, at least for this year. “I'll make clear we have no intention ever of going to conference on the Senate bill,” the Ohio Republican said Wednesday, referring to to a bipartisan comprehensive immigration bill that cleared the Senate earlier this year. Of course, it didn't take long after Boehner made it official for the blame game to begin. What killed immigration reform? Was is the botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act?
