Boehner Advises Republicans to Act Like Grownups

The winning team!

Do you think they can do it?
House Minority Leader John Boehner told his conference to "behave like grown-ups" if the healthcare bill is passed by the House on Sunday.

The Ohio Republican made the warning at a quick closed-door meeting with fellow House GOP lawmakers at noon in the Capitol.

According to several lawmakers who attended the 15 minute meeting, Boehner said "we will behave like grown-ups," and not engage in taunting the vulnerable Democrats who support the controversial measure.

Leaders anticipated that the Democrats will erupt in applause if the bill passes and they don't want Republicans to react with a chorus of "Nah-nah-nah-nah hey, hey, hey good-bye," as happened in November when the House healthcare bill was approved. The Hill
