Boehner to White House: You’ve been dodging our calls since April.

I’m translating this into English, of course – but not too much; Boehner made it clear Monday that the White House was disinterested in getting anything except a rubber-stamp on health care.

Earlier this year, GOP leaders sent a letter to the president in May stating that they would like to work with the administration to find “common ground” on healthcare reform.

But the administration responded with a tersely worded letter indicating that they had healthcare reform under control.

So, how’s that control thing working out for you, Democrats? I’m guessing not too well, given who you feel the need to push back against. “I’m pleased that the White House is finally responding to Republican health care ideas instead of pretending they don’t exist.” That’s funny – and I can’t believe that you gave her the opportunity to write that before the speech even started.

That was just dumb.
