Jonathan Martin, Manu Raju Jonathan Martin, Manu Raju Mon Oct 5, 5:53 am ET GOP leaders, in a private meeting last month, delivered a blunt and at times heated message to RNC Chairman Michael Steele: quit meddling in policy. The plea was made during what was supposed to be a routine discussion about polling matters and other priorities in House Minority Leader John Boehners office. But the session devolved into a heated discussion about the roles of congressional leadership and Steele, according to multiple people familiar with the meeting. The congressional leaders were particularly miffed that Steele had in late August unveiled a seniors health care bill of rights without consulting with them. The statement of health care principles, outlined in a Washington Post op-ed, began with a robust defense of Medicare that puzzled some in a party not known for its attachment to entitlements. GOP leaders to Steele: Back off - Yahoo! News You know why we voted you in Mike. Know your place. Now fetch my luggage.
