The Daily Quote

“Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio and his lieutenants came to the GOP retreat looking to convince the conference to go big and back an immigration overhaul, a real health care alternative and more. They left with mixed results.… Of course, it’s no secret that the GOP hasn’t been able to unify on much other than opposition to the president… ‘It’s important that we show the American people we’re not just the opposition party…’ [House Speaker, John] Boehner told reporters Thursday morning… In the near term, Republicans will have to tackle a hike to the debt ceiling. The retreat ended without a resolution on how leaders can sell the vote to their members.”
