SORT BY Relevancy
We have no plans to impeach the president We have no future plans. It’s all a scam started by Democrats at the White House.” Speaker John Boehner
“Isn’t it good we’re talking about this rather than impeachment of the president or suing the president?” Harry Reid said of the veterans’ deal. “The American people are totally opposed to this, we shouldn’t be off on those tracks of impeachment, suing the president. We should be legislating.”Politico
“As I said before, this is a lost opportunity,we could have sat down and worked together in a bipartisan manner to find cuts and reforms that are greater than the increase in the debt limit. It would’ve helped us to begin to solve the spending problem we have, begin the process of paying down our debt and so I am disappointed, to say the least.”John Boehner
House Speaker John Boehner invites Israeli PM Netanyahu to speak before a joint session on February 11. The White House was not informed until the invitation was extended to Netanyahu and accepted. The West Wing's nose is out of joint. Boehner showing some inflated (foot) balls?
Elizabeth Letchworth, our Capitol Hill insider, gives us her take on that and last night's State of the Union..
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?

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, gets himself invited to Congress. He gets invited through House Speaker John Boehner; snubbing President Barack Obama, when in the past Congress got an okay from the White House. Israel opposes President Obama's stance on Iran. Israel wants more American sanctions imposed on Iran; even the threat of war.
GOP leaders called a recess to floor proceedings on the Omnibus Bill that would fund the Federal Government until next Sept. Not enough votes for passage. As of this writing, House members are still out, but Speaker Boehner says a vote will come before the money runs out at midnight tonight.
However... It’s not clear what they will be voting on. A Continuing Resolution (CR) that will fund the government until the new Republican -led Congress is seated in January?
Tonight the Hon. Elizabeth Letchworth gives us her take on today's turn of events -- the postponement of vote taking on the CRomnibus hybrid, the "House of Cards"
