    Is Boehner orange enough to be Irish?

    Poor Boehner. If he lets a clean bill go to a vote, it will pass. But, he will quickly face a rebellion & lose the Speaker’s gavel. Why not tell his Tea Party cohorts to let the ACA move forward. The ensuing disaster will let the GOP sweep the mid-terms. They’ll have veto-proof super majorities. They can completely repeal the ACA & pass a bill enacting there vision of health care reform. Whatever that is!

    Of course, if the ACA is not as bad as they say, they’re “Breaking Bad”…

    ^^Yeah, Boehner has a really tough choice — his own personal interest or the good of the country.

    Okay, okay, it’s not really a tough choice for someone who hand out tobacco lobbyists checks on the floor of the House.

    “We’ve called their bluff, and they didn’t blink,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) told The New York Times. “At this point it would kind of strain logic to assume that going deeper into this when Republicans are likely to get the blame will benefit us more.”

    I am sorry, but does the speaker of the House make more money than a “normal” Rep.? Because, if not, what does Boehner has to lose? Only stress and ridicule! He’s probably as rich as all the other barstuds in Congress, so let the clean CR pass, lose your speakership, lean back and watch Michele Bachmann make an even BIGGER fool of herself wielding the gavel…

    $223,500 > Boehner’s salary
    $174,000 > Congressman’s salary

    Yeah, he loses quite a bit of money.

    The appearance of power is addicting. Money is to keep score rather than a necessary article.

    Am I missing something cryptic in the use of periodic table symbols “F” (fluorine) & “Ba” (barium)?

    Calling the Democrats “wing nuts” is not very nice!

    Grabbed that one right off FOX News, did you? A quote taken out of context is one of their specialties. The Democrats will not accept the Republican ploy of funding the government piece-meal (by funding only those parts of the government they “like”). And by the way, the VA has been funded through 2014. Try some other excuse, Ansonia.

    You are showing how wrong you can get things.

    “he thinks he can blame it on Republicans”
    .
    Curious how you rationalize that Republicans are not taking the blame. Every person that is not republican seems to blame them.
    A majority of people are not republicans either, something to think about in coming elections.
