It's worth noting that Boehner has Russian President Vladimir Putin a "thug" before.

The bill was passed through the chamber by an unrecorded voice vote on Thursday. Like Broun, Rep. Louie Gohmert took to the House floor to complain about the rushed vote.

Still, Republican leadership considers Broun and Gohmert's complaints outliers.

"A large majority of members were fine with the vote. They understood the consequences for seniors and doctors if it didn’t pass," a senior House GOP aide told TPM.

Broun is one of a number of Republicans seeking the GOP nomination in the Senate race for outgoing Sen. Saxby Chambliss' (R) Senate seat. A number of GOP candidates this cycle have attacked Boehner as a way to express their conservative bona fides.
