Boehner said this afternoon that Republicans plan use the summit to "point out what we believe the flaws are" in the president's plan."


"I think Republicans need to go," he said in an appearance on Fox News. "I don't see any reason to let the president have a six-hour infomercial about his bill."

Boehner also said that Democrats lack the votes to push the Senate bill through the House, repeating a claim Cantor made in a memo Wednesday morning.
