    Are you all aware that there are enough votes in the House of Representatives to pass the budget with $33 billion in cuts but that Boehner doesn't want democratic votes? He wants a uninanimous GOP vote. Now how ridiculous is that?

    House passes huge GOP budget cuts, opposing Obama
    04/15/11 WASHINGTON - A bold but politically risky plan to cut billions of dollars from the federal budget is coming to a House vote, with insurgent Republicans rallying behind the idea of fundamentally reshaping the government's role in health care for the elderly and the poor.

    Well, by now it's obvious he didn't get that. The minority in the House is usually pretty weak, but not with the Teabagger caucus causing problems for the Speaker.

    :D
