John Boehner needs to go – yesterday. This proves everything we have been saying forever. In an effort to tear the GOP apart (and it is working), the Progressive Dems have leaked emails written by House Speaker John Boehner’s Chief of Staff, Mike Sommers. Turns out, Boehner has been supposedly coordinating with Senate Majority and head weasel Harry Reid to exempt Congress from Obamacare. Can you believe this crap? Look, I don’t care that the emails were leaked yesterday by Reid Chief of Staff David Krone, who has a penchant for dirty tricks like this. Boehner is now really exposed for the dirty dealings we all knew he was up to, but could not prove. We hate both sides of the aisle with good reason.
The leaks, which are a major taboo in Washington, show Boehner (R-Ohio) worked behind the scenes earlier this year to address confusion over a provision in the Affordable Care Act that would force members of Congress and their aides into the exchanges. In fact, if one were to go by the leaks, which were first published by Politico, it appears that the offices of Boehner and Reid regularly coordinated to exempt Congress from the health care law.
But given that Boehner is now apparently against congressional Obamacare exemptions, the emails make him look inconsistent and hypocritical – which may have been the point of their leaking.
Boehner and the rest of his ‘Progressives on the Right’ posse have sold us out. He needs to have his arse handed to him and his tanning privileges revoked. I knew this politico was in bed with Obama when they became golfing buddies. Disgusting and enough to make blood shoot from my eyes.
From the Politico:
[B]ehind-the-scenes, Boehner and his aides worked for months with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), and others, to save these very same, long-standing [congressional Obamacare] subsidies, according to documents and e-mails provided to POLITICO. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was also aware of these discussions, the documents show.
NRO even reported that Boehner and his toadies were collaborating to arrange a meeting on this carve out disguised as a meeting on illegal immigration. Lies, deceit, sleight of hand and manipulation – where are those damned tar and feathers?
More from The Blaze:
“We can’t let it get out there that this is for [Boehner] and [Reid] to ask the President to carve us out of the requirement of Obamacare,” Boehner chief of staff Mike Sommers wrote on July 17.
“This is a little bit more difficult because it isn’t a routing meeting because [House Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi and [Senate Minority Leader Mitch] McConnell won’t be there,” he wrote. “I am even ok if it is the President hauling us down to talk about the next steps on immigration.”
About 1.5 seconds after this came out, the GOP right on cue started whining and proclaiming that these emails were mischaracterized. Really? That’s the best you’ve got? Actually, I think they are mischaracterized. They are worse than they look by a whole lot. You betcha.
A Republican aide called David Krone “a low-rent, self-dealing bagman.” And that they could never deal with him again. Well, you better say the same about Boehner and the Progressives on the right. All of them are despicable. Because Boehner is a double dealing, two-faced, sleaze bucket and is not clean, the Dems have leverage and can use this crap against him and the GOP. Duh. The slimy bastard Krone went on to proclaim:
In a statement to National Review Online, Krone defended himself: “Every time one of these anonymous Republican aides takes a look at their paycheck, I hope they remember it was Harry Reid who protected their employer contribution.”
“They and their bosses are welcome to return it if they’re so outraged. I took the action I did because I refuse to stand by and watch those who pressed for this ruling turn around and attack the very thing they asked for, simply because they don’t have the courage to stand up to a few whiners in their caucus. Integrity means owning in public what you advocate for in private,” Krone said.
This is just the latest greatest piece of offal that Boehner has been caught rolling in. Don’t forget that there were earlier allegations that he advised the White House in September on how to win Republican votes for U.S. military action in Syria. Speaker of the House, my ass. He’s the Speaker of the Ruling Marxist Class and we all know how that ends throughout history.
I couldn’t agree with Glenn Beck more on this:
“This is officially my snapping point. I have had it with John Boehner. I have thought he was not a good guy for a very long time. Not on our side. We all know that. We all know that,” an exasperated Glenn said. “But there’s a difference between not a good guy – not on your side – and somebody who is knifing you in the back. I want to make it very, very clear, John Boehner is knifing you in the back. And there’s no two ways about it.”
“Now remember, there’s no way for a Republican to get away with saying, ‘I know you have to join Obamacare, but we’re not going to.’ That was one of the things: Make Congress abide by their own laws. Make them feel the pain that they have inflicted on all of us in every shape and form. Make them abide by the same laws.”
“So, here is the letter. He writes, or his chief of staff writes to Harry Reid about how they have to get into see the President to save the Congressional subsidies. They need to see the President and do some backroom, off the record, deal,” Glenn explained. “John Boehner’s chief of staff writes, we can’t let it get out there that this is for Boehner and Reid to carve out the requirement of Obamacare. Got it? We can’t let it get out. We have to find some way to get them to the President, quoting, ‘I am even okay if the President is hauling us down to talk about the next steps on immigration. I really don’t care what we say it’s about. It just can’t be about what we know it’s about.’ End quote.”
“Let me ask the Republicans. Are you as dumb as the Democrats have been because the Democrats allowed the progressives to take over their party,” Glenn said. “Republicans, the evidence is here. John Boehner is a lying thief. He is trying to portray himself as something he is not. You now have the evidence of his chief of staff in bed with Harry Reid saying, ‘Can we bury this? Can’t we just make this happen? Can’t we just keep the subsidies for us while we pretend to fight against them?’ So now it’s up to you. You have the information.”
“I guarantee you, John Boehner would step down today, if the big donors would actually come to the plate today and say, ‘I’ve given my last dime to the Republican Party until john Boehner steps down – not as speaker of the house – but resigns. Until that happens, you don’t get a dime from me. Not one dime from me,’” Glenn said. “If everybody who has ever given any money would call their congressman and call GOP Headquarters and say, ‘Don’t you ever ask me for a dime. Don’t you ever send me an email. Don’t you do it.’ There’s step one: #DefundTheGOP.”
“I’m pretty good at predicting the future. I’m pretty good at seeing the trends. If you don’t come off of this road now, you are going to have a GOP that is just like the Democrats. And your choice will then be Chris Christie or Hilary Clinton. Which one you want? I don’t want either of them,” Glenn said. “You want a real choice? Good. Right now you can have that. If everybody got on the phone, everybody called John Boehner, Everybody called their representative and said, ‘I’m done with you. You know, you are a good representative but unless you can convince him, you are going to have to step out of your party. I won’t give any of you another dime.’”
“You are a steward of your money. You are supposed to do the right thing. Do you really believe giving your money to the GOP and to John Cornyn and to John Boehner to have them decide who is going to protect the Republican freedom [is the right choice],” Glenn asked. “I ask you to pray on it. Do you really think that’s the way to go? These guys are a knife in the back. Not a dime from me. #DefundTheGOP.”
Boehner got caught with his orange paw in the Obamacare cookie jar. Bad Progressive GOP, bad… The Republicans have allowed themselves to be overrun by Progressives – infiltrated and conquered. Gut the Progressive GOP. Turn towards the Cruz Coalition and the Tea Party. #DefundTheGOP.
