Be in the know: Today's political bullet points

Everyday we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation in and outside Washington.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

-John Boehner wants to break up spending bills. It sounds wonky and no big deal, but it will change how Washington spends money for the better.

-Eric Cantor wants to keep the slacker mandate allowing 26 year olds to stay on their parents' insurance and the pre-existing conditions mandate. Both poll well, but both drive up the costs of health care without also keeping an individual mandate. But the GOP says that is unconstitutional.

-When's the last time Obama got on the golf course? Did he learn an additional lesson from November 2nd?
