Rep. Louie Gohmert: Some of us had gone to our leadership and said… Let’s fund everything for two months. Let us have a vote on defunding Obamacare… We were willing to work with him, to compromise. And not one word as you know. The calls went to the White House. When in time when the Speaker needed votes he turned to someone he really identifies with, the president and liberal Democrats. And got them to help him pass this vote…
Sean Hannity: Do you think either one of you that this impacts John Boehner’s running for reelection as Speker? Is this going to come up in play now?
