Rep. John Boehner (R-OH): "It's going to be very difficult to have bipartisan conversations with regard to a 2,700 page health care bill that the Democrat majority in the House and the Democrat majority in the Senate cant pass."

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.
The headline answered itself. Hey Bow-boy, why dont you think of jobs first.
First two comments nail on head Bingo.
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.
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.
Obama Plans to Undo Bush Rules on Oil Drilling on Public Lands, Among Others
December 4, 2008 Obama may reverse Bush policies on stem cells, drilling, abortion
Obama blocks offshore drilling Feb 11, 2009 ... Wednesday, February 11, 2009 ..
So that they can blame it on you Boehner, you moron.
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!
nobama and his anti-American minions must go down. resist. resist. resist.
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?”
Republicans have got to play hardball on this and not give an inch or attend any meeting with the President on this rejected mess.
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find only things evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelogus
This was a great response!
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.
Then thats a good thing
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.
I LOVE THAT!!!!!! Go JOHN GO!!
LOVE THAT TOO!!!!
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.
