Boehner Tells Off Dingy Harry

John Boehner — I don’t know if you know this or not.  This is really cool.  Harry Reid told Boehner, (paraphrasing) “Don’t bother to repeal Obamacare in the House. Don’t even bother, because it’s gonna fail in the Senate.  Don’t even bother with it.”  So there you have the Senate majority leader telling the new speaker, “Forget it, don’t even mess with repealing Obamacare. It’s just gonna fail over here, why you gonna waste your time, don’t even do it.”  From, here’s Boehner’s response: “Senators Reid, Durbin, Schumer, Murray and Stabenow:  Thank you for reminding us — and the American people — of the backroom deal that you struck behind closed doors with ‘Big Pharma,’ resulting in bigger profits for the drug companies, and higher prescription drug costs for 33 million seniors enrolled in Medicare Part D, at a cost to the taxpayers of $42.6 billion.  The House is going to pass legislation to repeal that now.  You’re welcome.”  Whoa!  Whoa-ho-ho!  Right back atcha, Dingy Harry.  You know, this is the kind of thing you and I would say.  Boehner actually did it.  It’s in, he actually wrote that reply back to them.  He basically said, “Up yours,” in polite lingo, of course.
