Boehner Responds

Here is John Boehner's response to Harry Reid's line-in-the-sand warning not to try to repeal Obamacare:

Senators Reid, Durbin, Schumer, Murray and Stabenow:

Thank you for reminding us – and the American people – of the backroom deal that you struck behind closed doors with ‘Big Pharma,’ resulting in bigger profits for the drug companies, and higher prescription drug costs for 33 million seniors enrolled in Medicare Part D, at a cost to the taxpayers of $42.6 billion. 
The House is going to pass legislation to repeal that now.  You’re welcome.  

- Speaker-Designate John Boehner’s Press Office

The 112th Congress swearing in will be broadcast live on Facebook tomorrow:

Tomorrow, House Republicans will live stream the opening session of the 112th Congress - including the swearing-in ceremony and remarks by Speaker-designate John Boehner (R-OH) - on the Pledge to America Facebook Page. The House will convene and the stream will go live at 12:00 p.m. ET.

The reading of the Constitution will be Thursday at approximately 11:00 ET.
