As the Republicans rant about repealing health care reform to stop a government takeover, Democrats should do more than just remind people that repeal will take away real benefits. It will take away lives.
No one party ever achieves permanent power in our two-party system. As Boehner tries to help House Republicans, he should remember a bit of sage advice from Yogi Berra: "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
It's like a disease. I've not seen one Republican leader, from DeMint to Rep. John Boehner to Rep. Eric Cantor to Sen. Mitch McConnell answer the "which specific programs would you cut" question with a straight answer.
John Boehner claims his proposed policies will drive job growth more than any proposal of President Obama's. However, we find that this proposal would have a devastating impact on the struggling U.S. labor market.
