  •  Smart tactic although it is probably just a bluff. (0+ / 0-)

    Boehner must be really feeling the heat on all sides right now.

    •  I was wondering about that (3+ / 0-)

      Is this just public posturing or is it actually pressure on Boehner. She needs at least 25 Republican signatures to do it and you would think that Boehner would know if that many of his own caucus were prepared to sign on. So if she doesn't have the Repub signatures, Boehner knows and so it provides no pressure on him because he knows she can't do it. And if she does have the signatures, he should know that, too and would probably be calling her on it publicly to take away the public pressure or her credibility in the public.

      Since he hasn't called her on it, I'm beginning to think she can get the signatures.
