National Review's Robert Costa writes a piece for the Washington Post, Five myths about House Republicans.

Here's a sample:


5. There are few centrist House Republicans.

They may sometimes be silent and fearful of stirring conservative ire, but more than 100 members of the House GOP aremuch more centrist than you’d imagine. These are the members from purple and light-red districts, who rarely go on television and, unlike their more unruly colleagues, stick with the leadership. They are critical to sustaining Boehner’s power, and, should the GOP find a way to extend the debt limit and once again fund the government, they’ll deserve credit.

Meanwhile, a Georgia congressman's remarks lead us to believe he's not up on the in's and out's of Obamacare.
