    for Boehner, bipartisanship means "give us what we want or we will take America over the fiscal cliff." His Republican allies made sure to gerrymander state congressional districts so that a Republican majority would be returned to the house.  But even with the gerrymandering shenanigans Dems still gained seats in the house.  

    Don't permit the Republicans to control the message.  Yes Republicans and Dems need to work together.  We did not work so hard to win this election so that Dems can capitulate to the demands of those who Represent the 1%.

      total popular vote for R House candidates versus. D?  Given the amount of gerrymandering that went on I'm guessing they lost that metric.
