Boehner Condemns Obama’s Cuba Policy, Owns Tons Of Stock In Corps Doing Business With Human Rights Violators

It came as no surprise to see the kneejerk Republican response to President Obama’s decision to open relations with Cuba after more than half-a-century of isolation and sanctions. Clearly, 54 years isn’t quite enough time for this ridiculous policy to work, and if you ever wondered how long a series of Republican presidential administrations might […]

A funny exchange (not exactly ha ha funny though) happened between House Speaker John Boehner and Chuck Schumer on Twitter. It went like this: Senate Democrats should pass the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act immediately. http://t.co/kqlBxGPtXz #TRIA — Speaker John Boehner (@SpeakerBoehner) December 15, 2014 .@SpeakerBoehner We did. In July. 93-4. If you had put that […]

Unless you enjoy looking really stupid, you can’t logically blame the president for the $1.4 trillion deficit in 2009 and then refuse to give him credit for reducing the deficit to $500 billion at the end of this year. Likewise, you can’t shout, “Where are the jobs, Mr. President?” then refuse to give him any […]

Conservative Republicans don’t want a deal for long-term funding of the government that is being pushed by House Speaker John Boehner. These hard-line Republicans are already expressing their dissatisfaction with the plan outlined by Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) during a closed door meeting Tuesday morning. Instead of a spending bill that keeps the government funded […]

The GOP Immigration Lie

Even before President Obama finished his speech announcing his executive order on immigration, Republicans were already planning on ways to thwart the most significant step toward reform in decades. In a statement released by John Boehner, the Speaker of the House said, “By ignoring the will of the American people, President Obama has cemented his […]

In 2012, John Bohner said,”Obamacare is the law of the land” but it has been treated as anything but that by Republicans. House Republicans have filed a long-threatened lawsuit on Friday against the Obama administration over unilateral actions on the health care law that they say are abuses of the president’s executive authority, The New […]

You might know the name Jonathan Turley from his many appearances on the old Countdown with Keith Olbermann show and, most recently, from his vocal opposition to President Obama’s use of drones and NSA surveillance. He’s basically Glenn Greenwald but with a paycheck from the George Washington University Law School, where he’s a professor of […]

When conservatives next blame President Obama for not cooperating with Congress, pull out this one. House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) is considering expanding a proposed federal lawsuit over President Obama’s executive orders to include action on immigration. Filing a separate lawsuit over the president’s authority to protect millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation is […]

President Obama told Mitch McConnell and John Boehner he’s waited two years for congress to act on immigration and he’s not going to wait any longer. He added that his decision should not upend chances for cooperation on unrelated matters, according to aides familiar with the exchange. The new focus on Obama’s plans to revamp […]

They’re trying to make a plan that stinks smell like a rose, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal outlining a plan that would stop a million Americans from receiving health care. They try to make it sound like they’re acting in the best interest of average Americans: These bills include measures […]
