The House narrowly re-elected Speaker John A. Boehner on Thursday to lead the chamber into the 113th Congress after a rebellion among some fellow House Republicans fell short — though not without drama.

Nine Republicans defected, three didn’t vote and one voted “present” — which brought Mr. Boehner perilously close to having to go to a second ballot against Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Democrats’ nominee. But he earned 220 votes, or three more than needed to claim the speakership.

Mr. Boehner said the new Congress, like the last one, would be dominated by trying to lessen the debt burden that will be passed on to future generations. And he said that will require tough decisions by the members.

Roll Call Votes. Look at all the Tea Party favorites who backed the Weeper of the House. shame shame shame.

So who's going to tell me that the tea party movement wasnt hijacked by the establishment GOP? Angel

At least the liberty backed reps have some balls. Amash, Massie, Labrador, etc. you know the guys getting kicked off budget committees for trying to balance the budget and being a thorn in the business as usual GOP hacks. No caving to the party demands like the others elected in 2010.

He's been an utter failure as speaker. Ironic how the 'Speaker' can't articulate a clear and compelling argument against tax hikes and for spending cuts. Unless of course he's actually supportive of what was passed.
