Boehner told the House Republican membership in a telephone meeting a short while ago that the Republican leadership will NOT pursue defunding Obamacare, that they will only pursue saving from the sequestration. Levin responded to this news by saying we need to change the name of Obamacare to Beohner care and start repeating it over and over.
I bet Boehner holding that telephone meeting with the Republican membership was a direct result of all the pressure Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and others are creating with this Defund Obamacare push. I bet Republicans have been burning the leadership’s ears, telling them that their constituents want them to vote to defund. And this phone call was a way to try and stop Republicans from moving in that direction.
That’s my guess.
