Reid Leaks Boehner Emails to Undercut Position Against Obamacare
Never trust liberals.
Check it out:
Emails authored by Mike Sommers, House Speaker John Boehner’s Chief of Staff, indicate possible coordination between House Speaker Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-NV) in the exemption of Congress from Obamacare.
The leak occurred Tuesday when Reid’s Chief of Staff David Krone sent the emails to Politico. It is not looked upon favorably by others when something like this is done revealing the inner workings of the deals made on the Hill.
According to Politico, the leaks show that Boehner was working behind the scenes earlier this year with Reid, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD), and others to save the congressional health insurance subsidies. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was also aware that these communications were being held.
Both Reid and Boehner looked to the White House for help and even went so far as to personally request for a meeting with the President to lobby for his assistance in securing the subsidies. This meeting never occurred.
