Obama to Boehner: 'Hold a vote. Call a vote right now. Let's see what happens'

What is the Republicans' reason not to do so?

I'm curious what our conservative posters perceive as the reason? Why should there not be a vote according to those on the right?

He has the votes. He just doesn't want to prove it. What else could it be?

It must make sense to him somehow. I guess I'm trying to understand how it makes sense to the conservatives. Why is it OK for him not to call a vote?

Well doesn't it depend which bill they call a vote on? Idk what you are trying to prove.

They need to sit down and negotiate, not vote on actions that won't pass both houses.

The bill that Boehner says there aren't enough votes for. Why doesn't he just prove it by calling a vote?

Negotiate what? What concessions are the Republicans offering to the Democrats?

Boehner is getting stiff with Obama. He won't prematurely shoot himself in the foot like that. Boehner is in this for a long session.

Negotiate the fact that the negotiation part of the bill is over and that it became a law... 6 years ago... and was challenged but upheld by the Supreme Court over a year ago? What exactly is left to negotiate? How best to sabotage the democratic process if one party doesn't win?

Stay on topic. What reason does Boehner have not to call a vote?

In other words, as usual, you have no answer. I'll answer your question if you promise to answer mine.

You come into my thread, that has the topic clearly lined out, then complain that I won't answer an unrelated question while you yourself show no intention of sticking to the topic. You have some nerve, there.

Oh, please ti317, answer my question! I won't be able to sleep until I hear what you have to say!

Whatever. Surely, there's a "conservative" on here that can explain to me why Boehner won't call for a vote.

And yet they opened the National Mall today so Nancy Pelosi and others could assemble and demonstrate against the law of the land.

And yet the President and AG decided to ignore the law because they could not get their Dream Act passed, and allow people to stay here without fear.

And yet the President took it upon himself to change the text of a statute without benefit of any legislative action ( hint, changing the effective date of employer mandate). Second hint, read Articles 1 and 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

And yet the President and his minions rail against the Supreme Court decision in the Citizens a United case.

By your logic Republicans should not have stood up to the Democratic Party and challenged the law of the land that had been upheld by the Supreme Court and made slavery a legal enterprise.

By your logic, Thurgood Marshall should never have persisted in his suit against the Arkansas Board of Education as Separate but equal laws were the law of the land and had been affirmed by several Supreme Court decisions.
