Democrats waste time -- don't want to talk health care -- on the House floor

Rep. Keith Ellison: "The fact is, we're honoring a great American novelist, but we have to divert that important conversation…the Republican caucus wants to go toe-to-toe on health care."

Rep. Jackie Speier: "While we are trying to recognize the life and work of a great American novelist, we find ourselves drifting into a discussion of health care."

The Congressional Budget Office responds to Rep. Paul Ryan and finds that Obamacare could get very pricey, very quickly.

Jim Treacher: If the Democrats want to destroy their own party, fine. Why can’t they leave the rest of us out of it?

Max Boot: No way to treat a friend.

Krauthammer: What the Israel crisis says about Barack Obama.
