John Boehner's Word of the Day: 'Resolve'

June 28, 2012

Hours after the Supreme Court ruled on President Obama's health care law, House Republican leaders held a press conference to say that they will keep on fighting the bill through the legislative process.

"I think the real outcome of today's decision is to strengthen our resolve to make sure this law is in fact repealed," said Speaker of the House John Boehner. When pressed by a reporter if holding another repeal vote on July 11th was proof that Republicans were sore losers, Boehner repeated his word of the day: "Resolve."

"There's a lot of resolve amongst our colleagues," he said.

Much of the press conference was a demonstration in the major pivot that Republicans have had to go through in just a few hours: from railing on the president for his "unconstitutional law" to railing on the president for the "largest tax increase in history."
