Boehner also needs to realize that he's not campaigning any more.
The Congress shall have Power:
To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;
To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;
I love the idea that they'll include the Constitutional authority to pass the law into each bill.

One unexpected sideshow to today's reading of the Constitution happened around two hours after that, when Speaker of the House John Boehner took up the gavel and swore in Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Penn.) and Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas). Why did he have to do that? Because both of them missed yesterday's swearing in, losing track of time while at a reception. Both of them went on to vote on the House's rules package. Fitzpatrick read from the Constitution despite not, technically, being a member of Congress. Sessions offered the motion to constitute the Rules Committee, which he was not technically allowed to do.
