House Speaker John Boehner published an Op ed in an Ohio paper, stating that "The president"s health care law adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our country"s entire economy. We can"t afford it, and we can"t afford to leave it intact. That"s why I"ve been clear that the law has to stay on the table as both parties discuss ways to solve our nation"s massive debt challenge."[1]

Democrats believe that this could be another sop to the Tea Party - "a reassurance to the Tea Partyers who are soon going to be asked to accept some very uncomfortable compromises on the fiscal cliff that, don"t worry, really, seriously, the GOP leadership still has Obamacare in the crosshairs!".[1]

So what is the Tea Party anyway? It seems that this invisible party causes more problems than good.
