To Boehner: It’s too late to just delay Obamacare for a year

Critics fought the federal health care legislation really hard. At some point, the clock can not be turned back. I’m not saying we can’t eventually get rid of this stupid law, it’s just that we can’t delay it – delay anything – and expect the issue to be resolved in 34 days. Not. Gonna. Happen.

Obama to Boehner: “We don’t have a spending problem”

I’m wondering if President Obama figured House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would spill the beans concerning the discussions he had with the president. I want to hear more. I want to hear the president stand up and tell the American people the federal government does not “have a spending problem.”

Paul Begala: Boehner’s call for White House heads to roll a pretty smart move

Last night on CNN, Clintonista and Democrat/White House strategist Paul Begala was asked to respond to Republican House Leader John Boehner’s call for the firing of Obama’s entire economic team (or what’s left of them).

Boehner to Hoyer: You sound like the “dog ate your homework.”

Debating the non stimulating stimulus plan. Congressman Hoyer tries to cover for the stimulus not stimulating and Boehner holds his feet to the fire.

The question Chris Wallace puts to Congressman Hoyer is a simple one. Do we need another stimulus. Stenny goes off on we just need more time, we inherited a mess … yada, yada. For Boehner, enough is enough and stops him cold. Then he throws in the plan the Republicans offered for good measure.

Finally a Republican stands up and speaks out on a talk show.

Couldn’t we use more of this. or am I wrong. Maybe better … where has this kind of push back been?
