In this Jan. 3, 2013, photo, House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, leaves after a three hour photo session with members of the new 113th Congress that convened earlier in the day. The Republican Party seems as divided and angry as ever. Infighting has penetrated the highest levels of the House GOP leadership. Long-standing geographic tensions have increased, pitting endangered Northeastern Republicans against their colleagues from other parts of the country. Enraged tea party leaders are threatening to knock off dozens of Republicans who supported a measure that raised taxes on the nation's highest earners. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
