You want to play with 2.7 million peoples lives I am going to take yours you will never see it coming with my sniper rifle …
A letter sent to House Speaker John Boehner from Brandon J. Thompson, an unemployed 32-year old from Indiana who was very upset about Congress failing to extend unemployment insurance. Thompson was arrested Thursday on charges of making interstate threats.

But despite his repeated denials of using tanning beds, Boehner has ties to the industry. Not only has he accepted campaign contributions from a group called the Indoor Tanning Association, Boehner actually lives in a D.C. apartment owned by a lobbyist for the American Suntanning Association.

They are not fighting for conservative principles. They are not fighting for conservative policy. They are fighting to expand their lists, raise more money and grow their organizations, and they are using you to do it. It’s ridiculous.
House Speaker John Boehner • Speaking to House rank-and-files in a behind-closed-door meeting earlier this week. It’s one of Boehner’s harshest attacks on the far right, and one the groups very much disagree with.

John Boehner signed up for health care today. He used the D.C. exchange, and he complained the whole time.

Government shutdown spooks. If you look at the details of the cover here, there are tombstones that mark the theoretical political deaths of healthcare, gun control, immigration and something else. And to the top left, there are the lingering ghost powers of Boehner and Cruz.

Obama’s view, which I share, is that the debt ceiling fight is far more important not only than the specific policies on the table, or even the catastrophic economic consequences of a debt breach. It’s a fight to preserve the Constitutional order. And conservatives have resolutely refused to grapple with that fact…If the conservative goal is to create the illusion of winning something for the debt ceiling, then they’ll come back next time to win more, and Democrats can’t allow that.
Jon Chait’s take on why the Democrats are, in the words of the GOP, “refusing to negotiate.” Republicans would reply that Democrats have used the debt limit as a bargaining chip in the past, and it’s thus unfair to excoriate the GOP for “suddenly” attempting to upend the constitutional order. This is a disingenuous argument, though, as Dave Weigel has pointed out; the House GOP’s conduct now truly is unprecedented. source

We have not seen this in the past. That a budget is contingent on us eliminating a program that was voted on, passed by both chambers of Congress, ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court, is two weeks from being implemented, and helps 30 million get health-care coverage.
President Obama • Pushing back against a variety of House Republicans’ demands, after Speaker Boehner announced intentions to attach yet another attempt at defunding the Affordable Care Act to a bill seeking to avert a possible government shutdown on September 30. The President also said that he won’t “create a habit, a pattern, whereby the full faith and credit of the United States ends up being a bargaining chip to set policy.” source

McCain says immigration reform might sail through the Senate

70+ votes for immigration reform in the Senate? That sounds rather crazy, but John McCain thinks “it’s doable.” There’s a feeling amongst some of the senators working on the legislation that if the bill gains majority support from both parties in the Senate, the House won’t have any choice but to put it to a vote. We are skeptical that either of those things will happen, let alone both. source
