Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner nailed it when he declared “the era of Big Government is Back.”

I happen to know Boehner’s communications director, Michael Steel (no, not that Michael Steele – notice the extra “e” on the RNC Chairman’s name).  I actually know him very, very well.  Not only is he the former press secretary for Congressman John Shadegg, we shared a hotel room at the Holiday Inn Express in Muskogee, OK for two months back in 2004 when we were working together on Dr. Tom Coburn’s U.S. Senate campaign.  You don’t get better than Mike Steel when it comes to messaging.

“From everything I’ve seen, it looks like the era of big government spending is back,” he told reporters at a lunch convened by the Christian Science Monitor. “My question to my Democratic friends is how are you going to pay for it?”

Boehner also laid down a hard line Republicans plan to take on any Democratic health care or insurance-coverage proposal.

“I think government running the biggest health care company in the world is preposterous,” he said.

Music to my ears.
