Boehner's new word choice

Washington (CNN) - As evidence of a slight rhetorical shift, House Speaker John Boehner abandoned labeling the current health care law as "job killing," and instead called it "job crushing" and "job destroying" in a new message posted on his webpage.

"Repealing the job crushing health care law is critical to boosting small business job creation and growing the economy," Boehner wrote in the post.

CNN: Hospital: Giffords upgraded from critical to serious condition
U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been upgraded from critical to serious condition, eight days after being shot through the brain at a public event.
