The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the constitutionality of President Barack Obama's health care law within the next week, and House Speaker John Boehner has issued a pre-emptive warning to fellow House Republicans if parts of the law are struck down: Forget about celebrating.
In a memo sent to his entire caucus Friday, Boehner warned members not to gloat over what most Republicans would see as a victory.
"[I]f the Court strikes down all or part of the president's health care law, there will be no spiking of the ball," Boehner wrote in the memo. "Republicans are focused on the economyand under President Obama's policies, our economy is struggling. We will not celebrate at a time when millions of our fellow Americans remain out of work, the national debt has exceeded the size of our nation's economy, health costs continue to rise, and small businesses are struggling to hire."

Oh, Boehnless Chicken Breast!
There ought to be every manner of spiking of the ball.
Speak for yourself John. I’ve got a cell phone hidden under the goalpost.
“I’ll do the spiken’ around here, an’ dooon’t you for get it!”
The way obama arrogantly spiked it when he signed the bill with his nose in the air.
Go back to Andover, Boner.
Yeah! We wouldn’t want to gloat over the Supremes upholding the Constitution!
You need to go crybaby!
I had to check to see if this was satire.
Good grief, what a jerk. Obama is caught violating the Constitution and the GOP isn’t supposed to talk about it?
If the economy is so important, Boner, then why did you let Obama spend as much as he liked on green jobs and corrupt cronies the past three years?
I’ll file this under “why I don’t vote for Republicans anymore”.
Smart move, no use in gloating.
Should we shed a few tears Boehner?
Let’s replace that Boner guy with Issa. Issa has nmore testicles than the rest of the GOP Congressional Delegation put together!!!!!
At this point I think I’d be willing to quit my job, move to his district and vote for the Democrat if it would help get rid of this guy...
If I can’t spike the football, can I post videos of crying liberals and despondent rants from the DUmmies?
Boeher is a leftwing socialist republican and should shut his mouth.
