Boehnerland Update

But Representative John Boehner of Ohio, the Republican leader who is escorting a delegation to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge this weekend, said...Pelosi, in insisting on preserving the drilling ban, was putting Democrats in the cross hairs of voters furious about gas prices.

He accused the speaker of using procedural maneuvers to thwart votes on expanded drilling...'Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are standing in the way of what the American people want,' Boehner said.
