No fillibuster on this party!

Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner was thousands of miles away from our nation's capital on Tuesday.

Boehner, 62, was spotted partying in Hollywood at hotspot BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood with a group of pals. (A-listers like Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift, Ryan Seacrest, Ellen DeGeneres and many others have whupped it up at the eatery.)

Enjoying California's pleasant, non-snowy weather, the famously tan Republican and his crew held court on BOA's patio. On the evening's fun agenda: libido-enhancing oysters, BOA's signature tableside Caesar salad, and two bottles of wine!

By Thursday, the Majority Leader congressman was back to work. He issued a statement applauding Senate Republicans for their attempts to repeal President Barack Obama's health care legistlation.

"This debate has just begun," Boehner said.
