It’s simple, Boehner, you simply insist on going over the entire 2700 pages, paragraph by paragraph so that the public can see for themselves exactly what is being debated. If the Dems complain that it is too long and complicated, you offer to start from scratch.

You know, so many of us are always saying something snide about our politicians, however, I for one, think John Boehner has been doing yeoman’s duty for the Pub party this past year, against all odds, namely a Dem majority. Kudu’s to you, John Boehner for a job well done. I truly appreciate all of your hard work on our behalf, especially against Obamacare.

Dear Mr. Boner, You do what you’re told, because in the congress, the losers have to eat what the winners dish out. Stfu with your whimpering and start fighting. You’re a pusssy.

Rename, repackage, rewrite it a tad smaller, and sell another pig in a poke.

Tennessee has joined several other states in trying to pass a Health Care Freedom Act. NO COLAs for granny, retired Military or retired fed employees. BIG NEW fees for Tricare for Life retired over 65 Military's secondary health ins. (DOD bill already passed, delayed but goes into effect 2011)

New Dem mantra: Woof, woof eat dog food granny....ala let them eat cake.

Good!

The best thing to do with Obama is to let him him become an object of ridicule, satire, and above all, common sense.

Keep you eye on what the economy needs, not what the beltway elites want.

STAGED! The Republican written responce to the Whitehouse was a good one! THEY HAVE THE VOTES, THE HAVE THE MAJORITIES BUT THIER VERY OWN WILL NOT VOTE WITH THEM SO THEY BLAME THE REPUBLICANS FOR BEING THE PARTY OF NO when they don’t need them to pass this mess. They need them to SHARE the blame. The party of no is only passing on the message from the people WHO SAY NO!

Boehners question should have been “why are we going to talk about a bill that America does not want?”

“Why Are We Going To Talk About A Bill That Can’t Pass?”


The American people don’t want this monster either. Obama’s determination to keep this thing alive is an insult to the American people.

Republicans have got to play hardball on this and not give an inch or attend any meeting with the President on this rejected mess.

That would've been very nice too. However, I just saw the snippet clip presented at the linked web site. I would have to go look for the complete transcripts/video to know whether or not anything along those lines was spoken.

Obama doesn't have a plan. He has no idea of what he wants to do on health care. Its not the GOP's responsibility to toss him a life vest. If he wants to raise his anemic poll ratings, let him do all the heavy lifting!

I agree. Cantor, DeMint, McConnell, too.

I think this letter was a brilliant smackdown. I think every paragraph is worthy of a campaign commercial on just that one point.

I also think they should tell the Prez, hey, you said you were going to focus on jobs now, so what are you talking about?

They know that.

They are rearranging the trap he laid for the Repubs so that he has to walk away or fall into it.

That’s exactly what he said, and well, in the letter.

They should bring a 5 page document to the meeting as say here it is. No one is forced to buy anything, no one goes to jail for anything, not one tax is raised, etc.

Lord I hope so! The GOP needs to grow a spine tough as a Marine drill instructors! I pray GOD that he will give strength and wisdom especially to give the RINOS a conversion to conservatisim.
