This isn't how it's done, Mr. Boehner

House Speaker John Boehner needs to reread the Constitution to refresh his memory about how laws are passed and implemented in the U.S. because he obviously needs a refresher. Obamacare was passed by both the House and Senate three years ago, signed into law by the president, and was even upheld by the Supreme Court. It is the law of the land -- where is his respect for that? Isn't he of the party of law and order, or does that only apply when it's his way? To have held the entire country hostage because he doesn't like the law was outrageous and irresponsible.

That ship has sailed, Mr. Boehner. If you don't like the law, there are ways to change it that don't hold the entire country hostage; there is an orderly system for that. It's in the Constitution; you should check it out. The debate you claimed the president wasn't giving you was held three years ago, ad nauseam. Put on your big-boy pants and quit sulking -- the American people are sick of this!
