Boehner Urges Republicans to Fall in Line

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told his GOP members on a conference call that their party lost the elections, badly, "and while Republicans would still control the House and would continue to staunchly oppose tax rate increases as Congress grapples with the impending fiscal battle, they had to avoid the nasty showdowns that marked so much of the last two years," the New York Times reports.

"Members on the call, subdued and dark, murmured words of support -- even a few who had been a thorn in the speaker's side for much of this Congress."
