Boehner re-elected Speaker of the House despite  24 NO-votes from Republicans plus one "present" vote. 216 voted for Boehner.

This is one of the very few times when you don't know the outcome before it started. This was a messy start to the 114th session for Boehner. The revolt fell short, and in part the funeral for former NY Gov. Mario Cuomo made it easier for Boehner to win because several Democrats attended, making a smaller number needed to form a majority.

Debt is up 7.5 Trillion under Obama. Next Tuesday the bipartisan leadership will meet with Obama. A bill will be brought up to restrict monies that can be used by the president for immigration control. Republicans would like to pass bills and get them to the President for his signature -- or veto. 

Will this inspire Boehner to do the will of the people? Will it be enough when this Friday the House passes Keystone Pipeline and the Senate passes it, for Republican voters to say the Speaker is working on our behalf?

Will the fight for the heart and soul of the country be taken up by this new Congress?
