For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: Will the Democrats suffer this Election Day for blocking a vote on oil drilling?
[House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio)] also claimed that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Democratic incumbents will pay a political price on Election Day if they don't allow such a vote...Boehner added: "One person can't stand up and just block the will of the American people. She may be trying to protect Harry Reid and Barack Obama, but the speaker is gonna get rolled. The only question is when. And you can take that to the bank."
Is Boehner right? Will this issue hurt Democrats in November?
