House Speaker John Boehner is a very confused man. First he detests ObamaCare and now he objects to it not being implemented fast enough while at the same time he’s calling for the 38th attempt to repeal the Health Care Act. Eric Cantor called for a “permanent delay” of ObamaCare.
Daily Kos reports:
Obama administration and its decision to do what all the business groups aligned with Boehner have asked for: Delaying the employer mandate in Obamacare. So he sent a sternly worded letter demanding all sorts of information on how the administration came to this decision, but ultimately concluded:
Many have predicted the problems that your Administration now acknowledges, and each provision you delay continues to demonstrate that the entire law is unworkable.
Eric Cantor has a redundant idea, because nothing is more important to him than impeding progress.

Meanwhile as Amanda Terkel points out, the current Congress is on pace to becoming the least productive in modern history. Boehner promised jobs would be ‘priority one’ and thus far, he and his colleagues have not produced one job.
