From the Office of the Speaker of the House, The Honorable John "Darth" Boehner:
1. Claim the President's plan is terrible, socialist, and job-destructive.
2. Repeat Item 1 in response to any challenge, or to any request for a counter-proposal.
Appendix A: Run from Grover Norquist like he's a rabid dog engulfed in flame. We need to show our principles by completely abandoning the principles we held just last year.
This should make negotiation easy, now hit the airwaves! Let's get past this so we can move forward with some more abortion bills.
"Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!"
