    John Boehner can't be trusted and hasn't told much truth in the last year on the health care reform topic. Ask John Boehner where his empty folder with the so called republican health care reform bill is hiding. Has anybody heard a single measurable hint from the republicans on health care? Give more support to the Insurance Industry seems to be their only plan, you know kinda like trickle down economics and we all seen where that took us.

    Boehner has made zombies out of the members of Congress. He has them all saying, "NO!" at the same time and marching in lock step. With the pending "loyalty oath" for republicans they may all be wearing brown shirts soon!

    I've heard the President, Speaker of the House, and on and on.

    There is an old saying "If it sounds too Good to be True, then it generally is too Good to be True."

    Additionally, has anyone ever heard of the Government passing a spending bill that saves the voters money, ever???

    Stop fighting, work to improve the bill! Focus on governing rather on the November elections. As we all saw in 2000, republicans like getting elected better than they like governing. No progress on social security, no progress on immigration reform, nothing on health care or tax code reform.... not only the party of no – but the party of 2 wars & economic meltdown.

    A John Boehner quote, from the National Review, on the front page of the Cincinnati Enquirer regarding Congressman Steve Driehaus (D) of Ohio, if he votes yes on the bill, "the Catholics will run him out of town. He may be a dead man. He can’t go home to the West Side of Cincinnati."

    Anyone else out there think the Republicans, and the tea baggers they are courting, have taken this thing just a little too far. They hate this reform being "crammed down their throats." Have they forgotten what they crammed down our throats for the 8 years of Bush & Company? Please!

    And I would like to ask each and every one of our Republican congress men and women why they are supporting the insurance companies and not the American people. We're getting crushed out here under medical expenses and insurance and they don't care. Stunning.

    Keep fighting for insurance co.
    I have never heard republican worried about poor or middle class people.
    whether it is gas price or education or any thing that break the back of the poor and middle class.
    always worry for rich and corporation.

    My family are union members , we have had many people fight for our right to a decent health care plan, we have, all ready, most of the things that are in this Heath Care bill .I am in awe of all of the Union Representatives that have fought tooth and nail for us, united, you can accomplish so much. Who is fighting for your right to decent health care????? Self serving Republicans could care less if an accident causes you to lose your home .They passed the legislation to allow that. It's an effort to keep the people down and out ,so that politicians can continue to steal your tax money for the benefit of corporations like Enron. Perry will continue to use you and abuse you if you allow him to. It's time for Democrats to take back Texas!!!!!

    Any idiot can say no, as John Boehner and the Republicans have proven. But where are the GOP alternatives to Health Care Reform?

    History will be their judge.

    If excessive force is required to enact unpopular legislation impacting all citizens of a nation, one need know nothing else to seek its defeat.

    Republicans only fight for money and power. Not people.

    There is absolutely no moment in history where you can prove that Republicans had your best interests in mind and succeeded at anything that benefited you unless you were in the 1% of wealthy people.

    Name one bill they passed that you thank your stars for having.

    Can't name one? Isn't that a surprise.

    The most expensive bills ever passed in history – where all written by Republicans, and even more bills were passed through reconciliation... and if they Republicans were so great in looking out for you, how come between 2001-2006 you still couldn't get ahead in taxes?

    This guy makes the Republican party look like a bunch of sour grapes. If I were a Republican, I would be writing my congressional leaders to shut him up! Hes a disgrace to the party of "NO"

    I will say one thing about John Boehner, he needs to get a better hair piece of he wants to be taken seriously.

    You spend more time looking at his hair piece than what he is saying.
