John Boehner Thinks Certain Unemployed Americans Would ‘Just Rather Sit Around’

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) hit upon a popular Republican theme when he told a crowd at a conservative think tank that unemployed Americans just don’t want to work, and would rather “just sit around.” Fittingly, it was in response to a question about Paul Ryan’s so-called poverty plan, because it was Ryan [...]

Republicans are contorting to find a way to save John Boehner from embarrassment . The National Journal reports: Under the proposed tweak, any Republican who votes on the House floor in January against the conference’s nominee for House speaker—that is, the candidate chosen by a majority of the House GOP during its closed-door leadership elections in [...]

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) released a statement, following President Obama’s ISIS speech, in which he mixed backhanded praise (“finally,” Obama!) with nebulous criticism  (the President’s plan is not an “all-out effort to destroy” ISIS) that didn’t explain what he thought should be done differently.

Boehner [...]

Obama and his allies believe his authority to act without legislative approval has been strengthened by congressional gridlock over comprehensive reform. “I’ve heard not to expect anything until toward the [...]

They’re off for five weeks, so nothing will get done. Oh wait…how will we be able to tell the difference? The problem isn’t Republicans versus Democrats. It’s Republicans versus Republicans. The 113th Congress this week took another step toward ignominy as one of the least productive, most divided in history. Vocal Republicans were empowered, virtually [...]

House Speaker John Boehner is in denial that extreme elements of his own party, which are increasing in number, is where impeachment talk began, and continues. Talk of impeachment was cooked up by a White House desperate for something to rally Democrats ahead of November’s elections, House Speaker John A. Boehner said Tuesday, flatly ruling [...]

The lawyer who is representing John Boehner in his suit against President Obama has already argued that the suit has no legal standing.
