Boehner Cautions Obama: Don't “Poison the Well”

House Speaker John Boehner cautioned President Obama not to act unilaterally on immigration reform because that will "poison the well" for the new Congress. "I've made clear to the president that if he acts unilaterally on his own outside of his authority, he will poison the well and there will be no chance for immigration reform moving in this Congress," Boehner, who is in line for a third term as House speaker, said Thursday. He also said the House will vote to repeal Obamacare, despite the fact that repeal legislation would be headed to a certain veto and perhaps failure in the Senate.
