Democrats up ante against Boehner

Mark Preston
CNN Senior Political Editor

Washington (CNN) – National Democrats are sharpening their criticism of House Minority Leader John Boehner, airing a second national commercial charging that the Ohio Republican is too close to powerful interest groups in the nation's capital.

The Democratic National Committee is already airing a TV ad that accuses Boehner of helping big business at the expense of working Americans. The new commercial, which will air on MSNBC through the end of the week, is largely based on a recent story in The New York Times that highlights his ties to lobbyists.

    This guy Boehner has a clearly one track bone headed mind.
    Anything goes as long as it meets Republican Ideology 100%, otherwise say no!
    Just look at his face and body language in the Photo's (getty images) of the Health care ( so called bi partisan meetings.)at the white house
    It represents sheer hate and disgust/disdain towards the President, as did his actual words.
    He also engineered saying no to a bi-partisan commission on deficit reduction Obama proposed and then says DEM's do everything behind closed doors.
    If you refuse go to the party/debate and just filibuster(the antithesis of debate) stop moaning when what comes out has no Republican input.
    He's a good target for now next is McConnell.
    Hammer away at them both to offer thier Job creation plans and ways to reduce the deficit, specifically and in detail.
    The challenge give us your ideas and lets see if we can create a bi partisan bill, and forget about reconciliation etc, except on Tax and you'll use it to get all tax ideas thru in one bill, by one vote if necessary in each of house and Senate.
