I cannot think of enough bad names to call you and your little attack Chihuahuas Eric Cantor and Kevin McCarthy. From your silly Donald Trump-is-a-personal-friend-of-mine pastel ties to your arrogant three-pack-a-day voice and egoistic public presentation, you should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail, sir.
(My apologies to Donald Trump; I’m sure John Boehner’s ties are just cheap knockoffs, and your ties, I might add, look splendid on you. Oh, and the real birth certificate is in Mombassa. Check it out, bro.)
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.).
“They’re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous,” Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday.
Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration.
The legislation provides $63 billion in sequester relief over two years, which is split evenly between defense and non-defense programs. This is offset by targeted spending cuts and non-tax revenues that total $85 billion. It reduces the deficit by a total of $20 billion to $23 billion.
When Boehner was asked in the press conference about the conservative groups, he cut off the reporter asking the question.
“You mean the groups that came out opposed to it before they ever saw it?” he said. “… If you’re for more deficit reduction, you’re for this agreement.” [Read more here]
Which is of course a lie. The reason the Cato Institute, Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans for Prosperity, and FreedomWorks are against it is because it—surprise!—doesn’t cut spending.
Do we really have to go through this again?
The Democrats made out, as usual, like used car salesmen. Salespersons, excuse me. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Paul Ryan, Paul Ryan, Paul Ryan. He has a jaw that could chip ice and he counts beans like an gin rummy junkie. Is that really something we want to toot our horns about?
Do Republicans even have any fingers left to count?
The logjam here is obvious. The congressional leadership and everyday Americans get up for different reasons in the morning.
The Establishment leaders wake up thinking about how they can get along with the Democrats. Compromise. We regular guys, on the other hand, get up looking for an ass to kick. In other words, the next victory.
