Boehner, Republicans Take Reins In House

January 6, 2011 by  

Boehner, Republicans take reins in HouseNew Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) received the gavel from Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and Republicans assumed majority of the House of Representatives on Jan. 5 as the 112th Congressional session commenced on Capitol Hill.

Members of the GOP-led chamber have pledged to challenge President Barack Obama and Democrats on several domestic issues, including government spending and the healthcare law.

House Republicans have vowed to vote at least once a week on bills that cut Federal spending, beginning with a scheduled vote on Jan. 6 that would reduce lawmakers' office budgets by 5 percent. The GOP majority is also expected to move quickly on legislation that would repeal Obamacare.

During his swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 5, Boehner acknowledged that his role as Speaker could be short lived if Republicans don't follow through on promises they made to Americans.

"They have reminded us that everything here is on loan from them. That includes this gavel, which I accept cheerfully and gratefully, knowing I am but its caretaker," said Boehner, according to a speech excerpt obtained by FOX News. "What they want is a government that is honest, accountable and responsive to their needs."

Lawmakers are trying to win back the faith and trust of Americans, who were disenchanted by the previous Congress. According to Gallup polls, the 111th Congress received an average approval rating of 25 percent over the course of 2009 and 2010, which is among the lowest average ratings for lawmakers that Gallup has recorded over the last 20 years.

    Just happened to turn on the tube when the swearing in ceremony was taking place and and here was the speaker of the house giving a very strong and intelligent speech and standing behind her was this big orange dopey looking guy bawling.When Nancy was done spesking she handed an oversized Croquet mallet to the new speaker that he wanted to be presented with.I really don’t know his intention or why he wanted that mallet perhaps he has a new slogan.”Weep softly but carry a big hammer.”God Bless America.

  • Nikita63

    Nancy Pelosi is a witch, spelled with a diffeent initial letter. Anyone who thinks she has been a blessing for American civil liberties and quality of life is either deluded or an overjoyed Jihadist or illegal alien. Much has been made of the GOP and Tea Party’s will to effect a strong opposition to EVERYTHING Obama inspired and rightfully so but, a warning to both: Do as you were elected to do and go after Obama’s personal records. We in the electorate were ENTITLED to full diclosure BEFORE he was allowed to run. We NEVER got it. We NEED those answers and if the cretin in the Oval office can or will not submit them to public and intense forensic scrutiny, he should be impeached. There are no lack of grounds in the general opinion of the electorate. I believe the man to be a full faced FRAUD. It is up to HIM to definitively PROVE otherwise. I believe he CANNOT; and should be removed from office and punished to the fullest extent of the Constitution and rule of law he has disained and ignored along with all those who served him. He thinks of himsef as an EMPEROR, not a President and he has the qualities of a leader, of NEITHER!Speaker Boehner, stop the crying and START the DEMANDING for the revelation of the imposter’s personal records, NOW!It is our best chance to remove him and invalidate EVERYTHING he and his anti-citizen minions have passed against the will of the majority and be in a position to effect our recovery and tighten our laws and enforce them to protect ourselves when HE WOULD NOT. You were elected in the 112th Congress to stand against Obama’s anti-citizen behavior and profligacy. Do So! NO COMPROMISE;NONE WHATSOEVER!We will remove the remainder of his power base along with him in the next election but if you are persistent and dedicated; there IS the possibility of removing him before then. The opportunity is there for you to pursue:DO IT, AND DO IT NOW!

    • who cares

      Are you Nikita63 for real? is the number 63 the level of your intelligences? or ignorance? You’r type of people complain over anything, and everything you even bitch when you have to go(bath). You don’t care If the man is doing a good job or bad job what is Killing you is that the man is BlACK! You did’nt care when it was being destroyed by Bush. Or were you scare of Bush?? Where were you fine citizens when the U.S was being robbed, rape being flush down the toilet. Elite’s group of WHITE people the likes of Bush, Cheney (Draft dodger’s) Where were you when these criminals used your vote as a pass an encouragement to do as they pleased. They look the other way while banks robbed America,You. Insurance raised their premiums, and or dropped policy holder. Bush looked the other way let 9-11 happen, inturn used it to start two wars innocent childen (babies) women, men and old people die while you cheered bush on. Where were you fine people? when the economy callapsed under Bush administration. why were’nt you bitching then as you’e bitching now blaming Obama. It was Bush who sign and authorized the bail outs, it was Bush who sent to few tropps afghanistan and it had nothing to do with Bin landen or wining either But instead to trap Democrats and Obama for a war you people wanted. The biggest threat to U.S security and our freedom and even to the republican party. People like you and all your dumbass threatning But not because he’s the President of the Unite States but because hi is Black, and because he’s smarter then some, most of you. Is not what you say, Is how you say it that matters. Ever wonder why Republican seek out your support? Because you’r type don’t care for the truth it’s how lie’s are deliver beside your memory span is about a ice cube at room temperature. The public option you’ll call it the Obama care. It originated from republicans. Bail outs from Bush. Full body scanners Michael Shernoff home land security under Bush. The reason N.Korea have Nukes Bush refuse to sign peace treaty with North. Either way you will hold Obama responsible because thats what you do! Republicans are moving foeward to repeal health reform. If Insurance companies will once again have the right to deny coverage to people with pre existing condition. Charge women higher premiums than men. Seniors will lose critical prescription drug savings. get the picture. Not matter what happens you people will never be happy. Refuse your SSI, your medicare, refuse all govenment help. life line, bus passes paid by tax payers. don’t be a hypocrite no subsidies what so ever. ask the Republican party to do the same. I dare you!!

  • Schnable

    Boehner is a weak person who will bend under strong pressure from the witch of the west. Remember, she is not going anywhere just changing offices. Keep the pressure on your congressional representatives, or they will wilt like weeds in the sunshine.

    • Angry -American

      I very much Doubt Mr. Boehner will buckle, He has shown bigger balls on that senate floor than anyone I have ever heard. I was to put it mildly, Elated to hear someon stand up for Americans, He Showed no Fear to express his Disappointment about his Colleges or for The President. He stands For The American Dream, Not for the Whinners that have been flooding Our Nation, with their hate for Americans, but want what I and you have been striving for Liberty Freedom,Prosperity, I take responsibility for my actions , do you ? Are we to believe that illegals have the right to live her For FREE? Well then why cant all Americans go to another state or country and live for free, The Federal Goverment has been milking our Nation for the better of diversity? We cant even raise our own children and without being trated as a second class citizen Illegals get Everything free and they have better cars and homes, they are and have been the scapegoat for this abuse. I have seen it first hand, they go to school to learn ENGLISH Our native language, to our Face they refuse to speak our language and insist we learn Spanish, or We spend millions for the So called Catholics who dont believe in BIRTH CONTROL. So shouldnt the church be responsible for this carelessness? Illegals are the many HUMAN TRAFFICKERS especially here in San Diego, Ca. They sell their own. History of this Great Nation cannot be changed, And I hate being forced to pay for Criminals that show No RESPECT and No Moral Standards towards Americans California is littered with Illegals , we have to teach them how to cross the street even How Absurd is that? INSANE

      • who cares

        Angry A&*@&!(*^*, Bonner is a wimp, a orange pussycat. you must of got you ass kicked by an a Illegal or you just a loser who can’t save money to get a better car or a better job. you talk like a typical reject republican that don’t know what your saying. Illegal pay taxes they pay into the SSI system that they will not collect from. YOU angry american is what wrong with this country you are a FU*#^! I@#$t take responsibility for your vote it gets you no where.

  • Norm

    I think we’ve just gone from the frying pan to the fire.
    First Boner wants to read the Constitution out load. Sounds like a fifth grade social studies class.
    Next he wants to repeal Obamacare, with no amendments or debate allowed. So much for Republican led bipartisanship. Plus everyone knows that the House alone doesn’t have the power to overturn a law. It’s an exercise in futility.
    Third comes deficit reduction. The problem is many Repubs. want an even bigger military budget and nobody will hurt SS or Medicare because they know there jobs would be gone next election. Wellfare programs are pretty much sacred. What’s left is relative tiny.
    The final hot item is the budget deficit extension. Most good repubs. and teabaggers want to shut down the government. Any economist, even the conservatives, say this is a no no. If the government reneges on debt payment all hell will break loose. With troops in the field, cutting purse strings is a disaster.
    If your credit card is maxed out. The key is to stop spending and pay it off. Refusing to pay is not the answer.
    So it looks like bussiness as usual! Now the obstructionists can take some of the heat.

    • libertytrain

      Norm – had to start with this one:
      “I think we’ve just gone from the frying pan to the fire.
      First Boehner wants to read the Constitution out load. Sounds like a fifth grade social studies class.”
      I think he has to read it since apparently these “kids” didn’t have 5th grade social studies, history or civics or have apparently forgotten the history of the USA

      • usmadgirl

        libertytrain,

        You are exactly right! Either they have never read it or they have no regard for what it says or its purpose, whatsoever!

        When I was in school, we had to memorize it & recite it in front of the class. My fear of public speaking is right up there with snakes, dark, heights, lightening, spiders & closed spaces! So I remember the event well!

    • MWS

      All hell is gonna break loose anyway I’m afraid. My take is the reading is a reminder of the intent and guidelines the 535 intentionally poor stewards are supposed to work under.

          Norm, not very clever at all. Very simple. If you can hold your breath for 60 minutes, I will give you $100,000. Please, PLEASE try it!

    • Teresa

      Norm, apparently you have lived off US the taxpayers for a while to have such an opinion and disregard for the Constitution. And to even speak of the Constitution as if it “shouldn’t” be read is even more laughable. Congress is where it SHOULD be read! You speak about the repubs wanting to repeal the disasterous Obamacare bill w/no debate or amendments when the democrats shoved it down our throats w/o any type of debate or amendments…so before you start throwing stones please do not start straddling the fence on the left or right here. Congress..ALL of them need to be held accountable for their actions and YOU as an American “if you are one”, need to realize that this Constitution is OUR LAW, which needs to be followed by ALL, Congress especially before they start trampling all over our rights and passing their own made up versions of the law…sound familiar?????

      • Norm

        Teresa
        I’ve worked very hard and been fortunate enough to not require any kind of federal, state, or city assistance.
        On the contrary, I’ve paid a lot in taxes in my working years. Now, in retirement, I am still paying a good chunk of cash, even on my SS.
        Reading the constitution and living by it are 2 different things. I see no major difference in the Republican interpretation.
        The truth about Obama care is that as many people want it as people who don’t. That number will get even bigger when people get used to it. It’s far from perfect, but it’s a start.
        You need to turn off the Fox news hate mongers. They’re like corrupt preachers twisting truth and creating dissention.

    • pilot007

      Norm, try to use your spell checker and learn some proper grammar if you want to carry on an intelligent discussion.
      Your next educational experience that really is in order is to start watching FOXNews Channel, esp. Glenn Beck and get a new (to you) real perspective.

  • http://lcope@acf.hhs.gov Lora Cope

    I like our new Speaker in Congress. He obviously is a man with deep feelings and is not afraid to be himself. I am thankful we have a leader like him. I think the tears come from a true sense of awe that, even though he came from simple beginnings, he has been able to become a leader for America. He will weep softly for America but fight mightily (big mallet)to bring government back to the people under our American Constitution.

    • Norm

      Lora Cope

      Crocodile tears (or superficial sympathy) are a false or insincere display of emotion such as a hypocrite crying fake tears of grief. The expression comes from an ancient anecdote that crocodiles weep in order to lure their prey, or that they cry for the victims they are eating.

        Norm I disagree with you, what’s wrong with being emotional? Speaker Boehner is an honest and sincere man, he is not like Nancy Pelossi always smiling in front of you and then stabbing you in the back.

        Her smiling is false,insincere,hypocrite, with no emotion, luring her prey to devour it. That is what she and Harry Reid did to “We” The People when they jammed throug Obamacare, remember?.

        Lucky for America on November 2010 “We” The People spoke loud and clear and put the right Congress in power.

    • usmadgirl

      Lora Cope,

      Thank you! My sentiments exactly! Just because someone wells up with tears doesn’t mean they are a wimp. It means they are caring & compassionate! I’m sick of people calling him a big cry baby. He’s probably one of the few politicians that came from humble beginnings instead of being born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

      The media acts like they’ve never seen men show emotion (like Boehner & Glenn Beck) before in their lives. That’s just sad & disgusting to me!

      SPEAKER Boehner is a strong willed, unwavering, passionate man! I’m sure he’s simply overwhelmed with the reality of where he came from to where he is now. If I’m not mistaken his parents are both deceased! He’s probably sad that they didn’t live to see his dream become a reality…taking the gavel from the “wicked witch of the west”!

    Normally, when it’s painfully clear that the American people are being HOSED by being expected to endure the presence of a THIEF and an ARROGANT, career criminal, I’d ask if there was anyone left in this country who doesn’t understand why Queen Nancy MUST be forced to be elsewhere. Judging by some of the immature, useful idiot responses above, it’s obvious that some people are too damed DUMB to understand what’s so WRONG with having someone like Queen Nancy around.
    To you TWITS who will never get it, PLEASE move to a country where stupidity is looked upon as an asset. You are not needed here. People like you and

      Seriously, with all the information abounding concerning the anti-American and downright criminal connections of Obama and the Progressives in power, one would think it would make everyone want to take a closer look at these scoundrels.

      But, hey. It only proves that the liberal mind is hooked right in to the MSM, no questions asked. Ever. The media tells them what and how to think, and they go around parroting like the mind-controlled ewoks they are.

      Good grief, that woman (Pelosi) is such a smooth liar. She must have gone to the same coach as Obama. Everytime she opens her mouth I’m astonished at how she can say the things she does with a straight face. The wonders of Botox.

    By ANDREW TAYLOR and CALVIN WOODWARD, Associated Press Andrew Taylor And Calvin Woodward, Associated Press – Thu Jan 6, 6:06 am ET
    WASHINGTON – Republicans have already violated some of the vows they made in taking stewardship of the House.

    Their pledge to cut $100 billion from the budget in one year won’t be kept.

    And for a coming vote seeking to repeal the health care overhaul, the first major initiative of the new Congress, lawmakers won’t be allowed to propose changes to the legislation despite Republican promises to end such heavy-handed tactics from the days of Democratic control.

    Is business as usual really back so fast? That’s not clear one day after Democrat Nancy Pelosi yielded the gavel to the new Republican House leader, John Boehner. The GOP came to power in the House with an agenda that, if carried through, would in fact change how the government spends, taxes and does its legislative business.

    But those with long memories may have the feeling they’ve seen this movie before.

    After the GOP won control of Congress in the 1994 elections, the House churned out a series of votes aimed at fulfilling promises made in the party’s “Contract With America.” Most hit a dead end in the Senate. The GOP’s new governing document, “A Pledge to America,” covers many of the same themes and faces many of the same problems.

  • Jakki

    This constant childish, name calling and bickering doesn’t solve anything. Anyone who believes that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Obama, John Boehner, Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, Joe Biden, or any other politician in DC cares a fig about the “little man”, “middle class”, “poor people”, “ill”, “children” or anyone else is very naive and badly mistaken. What our elected officials care about is getting re-elected so they can acquire more power. The only way to whip them into shape is to vote them out if they don’t listen to the MAJORITY. They will then get their wish, which is to keep their job for power, money and recognition, and the majority of the people will get what they want, which is common sense representation.

  • http://cdpr3446@aol.com /DM Orlando

    John Bohener and his new Repbl., Congress are a waste. The new Congress is not a healthy indicatior of a good and democratic government. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  • Jimpeacock

    As soon as Boehner took the gavel, he should have hit the witch.

    • usmadgirl

      Jimpeacock,

      I’m so glad someone else actually wrote this. I made the exact comment when the witch handed him the gavel. If I were John Boehner & she had tried to hug me, I would’ve pushed her in the floor! Now that’s not very nice! Shame on me for five minutes!

      She doesn’t have to be conked on the head to have that “deer in the headlights” look. Like kate8 said “the wonders of Botox” takes care of that all the time!

      If you lined up Nancy, Barbara Boxer, Hillary, Maxine Waters, Janet Napolitano, Michelle Obama & Dianne Feinstein, you could use the gavel to play music on their heads like playing “water glasses”.

  • Norm

    An open letter:

    Senator McConnell and Congressman Boehner, I am calling on you and your fellow Republicans in Congress to practice what you preach, and to give up your government-sponsored health care.

    For two years, you opposed any effort at reasonable reform, and derided attempts to help tens of millions of uninsured Americans as ‘socialist.’ And yet, you seem to have no problem at all accepting government-sponsored health care for yourselves.

    Practice what you preach, and stop being hypocrites. You want to repeal health care reform? Fine — start by ‘repealing’ your own!

    • JimH

      Norm, Define “reasonable reform”. Do you think what we have NOW is “reasonable reform?” Do you think we should keep the boondogle we have now, because they opposed other reforms in the past? This mess needs to be repealed and restarted from scratch.

      • Norm

        JimH
        You are correct in that we have a a bad law.
        The problem with repeal is that any new law will probably be worse or, more likely, it will never happen.
        Oddly what Boner and McConkle have is probably more liberal and far far better than anything proposed by snyone.

  • jopa

    The first order of business even before the reading of the Constitution was the republican party unanimously voting not to disclose that they all signed up for government healthcare.Now is this a double standard, good for them but not John Q Public?Not only that what happened to their disclosure stance?

  • chuckb

    why didn’t the democrats include federal workers in the healthcare bill. now that’s what you call a double standard.

  • geller

    This discussion iis boring. All of you should be out looking for a JOB

  • oldtimeyman

    Sounds to me like all of you need a crash course in the Constitution.

    Health care is NOT mentioned in the Constitution and by its silence, health care falls under state control or reverts to the people via the 10th Amendment.

    But, to deal with this hand we’ve been dealt, how about a good healthy dose of nullification. It’s my understanding that about 30 states have already notified FedGov it has overstepped its bounds and they are planning to nullify Obamacare in their states.

  • who cares

    One of your crazy’s Republicans shot a Democrat congress woman kill SIX others. With help from crazy republican one day 2nd amendment could be repeal.

    Words, Instruction, cross hair targets on Democrats have consequences. Such as Sarah Palin did by putting targets on States Democrats had control of or were running for office, Arizona was one of them Rep, Gifford was running for re-election. We now see the consequences of misinformation. When will other Republicans/tea party fruit cakes act out on misinformation put out by Republican politicians and/or Fox News about or against Democrats and/ or President Obama. All you need now or hope to get is a Timothy McVeigh and or a militia group to act out on their orders. I would not want to imagine what could happen to this country if anything should happen to President Obama. Right wing nuts take Freedom of speech literally and abuse it to the point of acting on your crazy beliefs as this nut did by shooting these people. It wont be a democrats who will take your guns, or gun right away. One of you dumbasses who countinue to cross the line and act out on your fear of Democrats thinking your freedom and rights are being taken away. As this dummy who shot the Congress woman Gabriell Gifford and 19 others people six of them die including a 9 year old. Stricter gun controls laws will follow and be intruduced. As I said in the past the biggest threat to the U.S. security and the rights of others is you WAKO Republicans/tea party. Blame falls on Republicans politicians one in particular is none other than President Reagan for cutting money for mental institutions If these places had been open maybe this guy and other’s like him could of gotten help, who knows.
