What took place behind closed doors when the House GOP met with Speaker Boehner for the first time since Christmas? We can give you a hint — the figurative fur flew all over the room. The Speaker got an earful from angry House GOP members during the first GOP House conference of the new session this morning. The main theme was the handling of the payroll tax bill over Christmas. He let them speak their peace before telling them… well, The Honorable Elizabeth Letchworth, our Capitol Hill insider and editor of GradeGov.com has the scoop.
We’ll also cover the White House’s cancellation of the Keystone Pipeline, and the reaction from Congress. What will Boehner and Co. do about it? March on the White House? Set their hair on fire? Flap their jaws, promise a fight and then go back to their golf games?
Also, lawmakers are backing away from the highly unpopular Internet piracy bills in the face of a Web blackout today. Elizabeth with the mechanics of the House’s Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Senate’s Protect IP Act (PIPA).
Finally, a report on the vote on the debt increase and what came out of this morning’s GOP conference meeting.
In the second hour — Glenn Beck, the Economic Jihad and the Repo Men. Scary stuff, about what’s REALLY going on.
