The point I was trying to make is context. Boehner did say those words, but he was talking about social issues like abortion and same-sex marriage. He wasn't talking about fiscal issues.
Obama didn't say he would "bankrupt the coal industry." He said if someone wanted to build a coal power plant without any emissions control, under his cap and trade proposal, it would bankrupt them. To compete, a coal plant would have to make itself much more efficient from an emissions standpoint. It's not the same thing. He didn't want to destroy the coal industry, he wanted to gradually replace it with sources other than fossil fuels.
