Two things happened [in the 2012 election]. Republicans had lost only eight House seats in the 2012 election, but with Obama’s victory the national mood seemed to have swerved in a liberal direction. Boehner and the House leadership, however, took the party in the opposite direction. It was a startling change, an unexpected but near-total victory for House conservatives. And along with that, opposition to Obama’s agenda was significantly stiffened.Did I mention that I'm GLAD the Republicans were unable to pass the delay for the individual obamacare mandate? I say - let the pain begin! I want the Dems to OWN THIS LAW twelve months from now! And I hope they choke on it!
