  • John Boehner on amnesty: 'I want to get it done'

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said that he wants to get amnesty legislation done this year even as he insisted that the immigration reform he and President Barack Obama discussed in their White House meeting was not "amnesty." Boehner recently said that he and Obama agreed the most on immigration during their recent one-on-one meeting and both want legislation this year, which amnesty advocates believe may be the last chance to pass significant immigration reform. Obama said he would not sign a bill that does not have a pathway to citizenship in it or that creates two classes of people...
  • John Boehner’s sunshine band: The leader of the liberal wing of Congress(John,they are proud of you)

    From now on, it’s the Zip-a-dee-doo-dah House. The political world stopped for a moment when Speaker John Boehner broke into the jaunty old Disney tune — “My, oh my, what a wonderful day” — after a news conference in which he threw in the towel on the debt ceiling fight. He found himself trapped between the immovable object of Democrats determined that they’d never again let Republicans take the nation’s credit hostage and the irresistible force of a dysfunctional, crisis-addicted GOP majority of which he is the putative leader. Boehner decided to skip away in song. Feb. 11, 2014, was...
  • John Boehner Not Only 'Made a Deal w/Obama' -but Fears Being Implicated in Benghazigate Himself

    Appearing on Fox, Pat Caddell said Monday that John Boehner quietly went-along the harebrained Libya-Syria gun running scheme that blew up in the Obama regime's face last year -without proper congressional approval- and now fears the consequences of his own grave errors.  Thus, the House Speaker is no more interested in a real Benghazigate probe than Hillary Clinton would be- this despite 70% support for the appointment of a Select Committee among congressional Republicans... So how can we force this duplicitous crapweasel to do the right thing? As Mark Levin says, Boehner 'doesn't give a damn', and clearly has NO interest in...
  • Gutierrez: Boehner a 'Friend and Ally' in Immigration Reform Fight (Weasel Alert!)

    “I think Speaker Boehner wants comprehensive immigration reform. He wants a solution to the problem. I think he's for comprehensive immigration reform,” said Gutierrez, a long time amnesty advocate. “He's for a complete package, I believe. That's what he has said. My meeting with him last week leads me to no other conclusion but to affirm that.” Speaker Boehner told his Republican conference he would not move any immigration bill to the floor without the majority support of his party. Congressman Tim Huelskamp (R – KS) told Brietbart News on Tuesday that the Speaker would be “going back on his...

    House Speaker John Boehner today called NSA leaker Edward Snowden a “traitor” who put Americans at risk by releasing classified information to the media. “He’s a traitor,” the highest ranking Republican in the House of Representatives said in an extensive interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “The disclosure of this information puts Americans ... continued here

    Republican leaders in the U.S. House kicked U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp off the House Agriculture and House Budget committees this week – a move that dismayed many in the state’s powerful agriculture sector. In a statement on his congressional website, Huelskamp, R-Fowler, said he was given “limited explanation for his removal,” but that his “consistent, principled, and conservative votes have riled the GOP Establishment.” House Speaker John Boehner, in the midst of critical budget negotiations over the “fiscal cliff,” removed other conservatives from their committee posts as well – Justin Amash of Michigan from the House budget committee, and Reps....

    Let's get right to a story that epitomizes what is wrong with Washington, in general, and the Republican Party, in particular. In 2010, the Republican Party gained a majority in the House of Representatives and came very close to gaining control of the Senate. That move was fueled, in no small part, by the Tea Party. Conservatives in America let it be known they were fed up and they elected representatives to go to Washington and bring a semblance of sanity to the proceedings, especially on fiscal issues. Their impact was not as great as it should have been and...

    Six freshman members of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday called on GOP leadership to bring a contempt of Congress resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder to the House floor, charging he has “thwarted and obstructed” Congress’ efforts to conduct Congressional oversight of the "Operation Fast and Furious" gun-running program. In a letter to Speaker John Boehner (Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.); Reps. Sandy Adams (Fla.), Ben Quayle (Ariz.), Tim Griffin (Ark.), Dennis Ross (Fla.), Tom Marino (Pa.) and Trey Gowdy (S.C.) argued that “the House of Representatives has seen its proper oversight...

    House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday that despite a toxic political climate in Washington and his deep ideological differences with President Barack Obama, the two "have a good personal relationship," even as he criticized the president's health-care plan and stewardship of the economy. The Ohio Republican also opened up about the GOP presidential field during an interview with TODAY’s Matt Lauer. “I’ve got a big job to do here in the Capitol,” he acknowledged. “Voters around the country who choose to vote in Republican primaries will pick one of these candidates. And whoever that candidate is, I will support.”
  • The 'Untouchable' $23.6 Billion Funding Obamacare

    Untouchable. That’s the treatment being given to the $23.6 billion being spent right now to implement Obamacare. This $23.6 billion is part of the $105.5 billion appropriated by the last Congress to fund Obamacare. The remainder (Think of it as post-dated checks for the other $81.9 billion.) automatically becomes available between now and FY2019. None of this is to be confused with an additional $115 billion authorized for additional appropriation to Obamacare—but which the current Congress is unlikely to provide. The most pressing question, however, is whether any of the current $23.6 billion will be rescinded as part of the...
