John Boehner said, “We fought the good fight, ... we just didn’t win.” No. You did not fight the good fight, you didn't fight at all.
Boehner insisted that he’s “doing good” today after Senate leaders struck a deal earlier this afternoon. He said the House Republicans tried to “bring the government down to size” and did their best to “stop Obamacare,” but were ultimately unsuccessful.
The speaker also said he “absolutely” plans to allow the entire House to vote on the Senate bill even if the majority of Republicans plan to vote against it. He said he will “encourage” his members to vote “yes” on the bill tonight and predicted the government will reopen tomorrow. (Mediaite)
Just say "NO".
Boehner got a standing ovation from other Republicans.
Eric Cantor said the following:
“We all agree Obamacare is an abomination. We all agree taxes are too high. We all agree spending is too high. We all agree Washington is getting in the way of job growth. We all agree we have a real debt crisis that will cripple future generations. We all agree on these fundamental conservative principles. . . . We must not confuse tactics with principles. The differences between us are dwarfed by the differences we have with the Democratic party, and we can do more for the American people united,” he told them. (National Review)
