A Short, Sad History Of Soon To Be Irrelevant Paul Ryan
The fattest rat of all has abandoned ship.
The fattest rat of all has abandoned ship.
Democrat Beto O'Rourke just shattered fundraising records in the first quarter of 2018 and could beat Ted Cruz in the 2018 midterms.
The former speaker of the House spoke to an energy conference, where he spoke his mind about Trump's presidency so far.
The former House Speaker addressed a health care conference in Orlando, where he told attendees what he thinks will happen with the ACA.
Ignore the media's efforts to portray Boehner as a compromised leader who had little choice but to appease the far right. He was a disastrous leader from the start.
Weeping orange man John Boehner has finally decided to call it quits on his tumultuous tenure as Speaker of the House. Now, someone crazier than him is likely to take over.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) has offered up a resolution to oust Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH). Here's hoping Boehner's replacement knows more about Congress than Meadows does.
Because a crash that could have been prevented by a long-delayed safety system is "obviously not about funding."
Why would Netanyahu do something so foolish?
That's right, the man who's third in the line of succession for the presidency posted a series of Taylor Swift gifs -- and on an official dot-gov website no less.
These measures to undercut Obama's executive actions are purely symbolic, and they still barely passed. Republicans are giving away the Hispanic vote in 2016 for this?
On the first day of the new Congress, the White House made it's threat to veto the Keystone Pipeline explicit, but left wiggle room for the project to be used as a bargaining chip down the line.
Boehner is making a bundle from corporations that are actively exploiting workers and racking up human rights violations in China, a nation led by communists with a long history of human rights abuses, as well as other countries such as Burma and perhaps even Iran.
The proposed Continuing Resolution/Omnibus spending bill, better known as the "CROmnibus," is so tortured, it'll make you beg for a little time in a coffin-shaped box, but everyon's ignoring the most frightening thing about this monstrosity.
Where are the jobs, Mr. Speaker? Certainly not at the bottom of that glass of cheap Merlot.
Republicans have been fairly disciplined at keeping this point vague enough to obscure the proposal's true intent. Well, all except one.
John Boehner keeps pimping claims that have no basis in reality.
That'll do, Twitter. That'll do.
After weeks of Republicans criticizing President Obama's ISIS strategy, yet failing to actually say the thing they were trying to say, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH), the highest-ranking Republican in the world, finally came out and endorsed U.S. ground troops in Syria.
Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) hit upon a popular Republican theme when he told a crowd at a conservative think tank that unemployed Americans just don't want to work, and would rather "just sit around."
John Boehner compliments Obama on ISIS action. Sort of.
It's literally 41 seconds of John Boehner in various settings with a creepy horror-movie toy monkey.
Even more astounding is the ridiculous conclusion the piece draws about Obama's "failed presidency."
Those "Democrats" and their sneaky impeachment ruse!
The Beltway media is somehow trying to make the White House the villain for beating Republicans up with their own impeachment talk.
The White House is "worried" about impeachment the way a fox is "worried" about a hen-house.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration because of this so-called Obamacare exemption that doesn't exist.
Masochistic though it may seem to refuse to hit the unsubscribe button, there are definitely some trends when it comes to email subject lines.
President Obama announced that he'll take any and all executive actions he can in order to fix the nation's immigration system, and by doing so showed no concern for John Boehner's litigious shenanigans.
We looked at the GOP charges against the president and determined that nothing this president has authorized is outside the bounds of what previous presidents have done, including the content of executive orders.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) appears to be moving forward with a lawsuit intended to thwart the president's ability to sign executive orders, as if Obama invented the idea or has abused the system more than previous chief executives.
The same people who brought you the Iraq war have some ideas about what to do now that their war has led to total chaos.
Former The Daily Show correspondent and fill-in host John Oliver has been spreading his wings for three weeks now on HBO's Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and in his third outing, offered an example of the benefits of pay TV. In a bit demonstrating the logical extension of today's negative political ads, Oliver took advantage of HBO's nudity standards by producing a mock attack ad against "old, white, wrinkled dick" Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) that hits the nail right on the... head.
“It’s very sad,” Leader Pelosi said. "Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods. Two of their families have called us and said ‘Please don’t take us down this path again.’ It’s really hard for them, it’s very sad.”
It kind of makes sense in a twisted, cynical sort of way that Speaker John Boehner's newly ordained House Select Committee on Benghazi is stacked with seven Republicans and only five Democrats. The newly resurgent outrage over Benghazi is obviously meant to be a crowd-pleaser for the midterm base rather than a noble investigative endeavor, so why not give the apoplectic rage-aholics a lopsided committee majority -- it only serves to underscore the crass, opportunistic nature of the whole thing.
Along comes J.D. Winteregg, the tea party challenger running in a primary against Speaker John Boehner. In the ad, Winteregg parodies a Cialis commercial and claims that Boehner suffers from "electile dysfunction," and Winteregg is the cure. Oh, by the way, yes, there's a boner/Boehner joke in there, too. Get it?
Congress, with plenty of Republican support, passed H.R. 4302 "Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014," or what's known as the "doc fix," which eliminated an impending cut on Medicare reimbursements to doctors. Contained within that legislation was an amendment altering the Obamacare deductible cap on group health insurance policies, making it easier for small businesses to afford to cover employees by offering higher deductible, lower premium coverage.
It's almost as if 7,500 gallons of 4-methylcyclohexane methanol didn't leak out of a Freedom Industries' shoddy chemical tank into the drinking water, impacting 300,000 people. Instead, he's playing political grabass with this obvious public health and environmental hazard.
It's Friday, which if you're lucky is pretty meaningless this week. Here's some reading material for your morning regardless.
Yesterday at a press conference John Boehner attacked conservative groups, claiming they have "lost all credibility."
Apparently, the GOP sees the country as a village that must be burned to the ground to save. But the only village Republicans need to burn down to save is their own.
It can't be shouted loudly enough how ridiculously irresponsible this is. Not only have the Republicans halted the functioning of the government, but they're risking a worldwide calamity that will surely make your life extraordinarily difficult. If it's not due to an impending worldwide depression, it'll be because Obamacare has been sabotaged, risking eventual failure.
Until 2011, Congress has never used the debt ceiling as a political hostage. Not once. Raising the debt ceiling was always an opportunity for one thing: the opposition party could score some points on fiscal responsibility via a few strongly-worded floor speeches. But the congressional Republican caucus' strategy is to threaten a default, then to mislead the public by suggesting that nothing bad will happen.
There aren't any unions that are exempted or waived from Obamacare. None. But that's what Mr. Boehner wants us to believe. He wants us to believe that Obamacare is unfairly targeting ordinary Americans, but waiving everyone else from participating in the law. And it's simply untrue.
Speaker John Boehner, among others, took to the floor of the House of Representatives and shouted, "Get rid of the exemption for Members of Congress! It’s a matter of fairness for all Americans!" It's difficult to encapsulate in any language, living or dead, the sheer intellectual violence of this lie.
GOP House members voted last week to cut $40 billion out of the country's primary food security program over the next 10 years. The cuts would knock an estimated 3.8 million Americans off Food Stamps. Maybe the GOP loves the poor after all. Republicans seem to be doing their damnedest to make sure there are more and more of them.
