Get rid of ObamaCare! Now! It’s a really good idea … if your plan is to do the exact opposite of what you’re trying to achieve on controlling the deficit. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday said ObamaCare will actually work to shrink, not enlarge, our fiscal budget headache.

Contempt vote to come tomorrow against Holder
What’s more notable? The fact that the House of House of Representatives will initiate contempt proceedings against Eric Holder over Fast and Furious documents? Or the fact that a news outlet finally provided the correct pronunciation of John Boehner’s name? You be the judge. (Photo credit: AP). source

WOAH. House Speaker John Boehner made it clear at his weekly press conference today that he disagrees with President Obama on the issue of gay marriage, and he would not answer the question: Do you feel that gay marriage is a civil rights issue? When asked, Boehner responded:  ”I believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, and the president and the democrats can talk about all this all they want.” He added, “The fact is the American people are focused on our economy, and they’re asking the question: Where are the jobs?”

It’s like he’s pointing into our souls.

Boehner: Nevermind our agreement, I changed my mind

  • thenWhen Congress raised the debt limit last summer, part of the deal included cuts to defense spending that would automatically kick in if the deficit Super Committee failed. It did fail, and John Boehner confirmed last November that he felt bound to honor the cuts (which should have been assumed, but nevermind).
  • now"Just kidding!" Boehner is now saying that "we should have never had the sequester" (the formal term for the triggered cuts), and has announced his intent to reneg on the deal he signed. Sorry, John, but that’s not how this works; you may get the House to pass this, but something tells us Senate Democrats won’t be on board. source

» Question: If Boehner goes ahead with this, will anybody, Democrat or Republican, have any reason to believe he’s negotiating in good faith next time a deal needs to be reached? Obstructionism is one thing, but to make an agreement, pass that agreement in the form of legislation, and then attempt to get out of that agreement when things don’t go your way is another. Make no mistake; the debt ceiling will have to be raised again; we’re not sure how negotiations can even commence, let alone conclude, if this is how Boehner plans to go about things.
