    Wasn’t it two years ago that Boehner and the Republicans ran on the platform that they were _going_to cut spending?
    -
    He was asked about specific cuts repeatedly and his response was that they were going to have meetings every week and those meeting would result in spending cut proposals.
    -
    Refusal to propose specific cuts worked great last time, so why not repeat?
    -
    Republicans idea of proposing spending cuts is to demand that Democrats do so.

    How can the G.O.P. cut anything? The demorats control the Senate and are able the block anything in H.O.R. Both parties have got to give and take. The voters are responsible for the mess, we had a chance to clean house, we didn’t.

    And, of course, the Republicans have blocked nothing and are fully cooperative about compromise…Then there’s the one about the Irishman who walks into a bar…
    Wait? What? You say you WEREN’T joking???

    One could reverse Democrats and Republicans in your pos tand still have the same thing. Perfidious and procrastinating politicians posing and posturing for the press and not presenting any practical, precise proposals for the public to peruse.
    “P” on them!

    He must be reading the Senate’s budget from this year. Or last year. Or the year before. Or the year before.

    They can’t. Their goal is to save the rich.

    I"m sorry for this country we give million of people homes here and the people that pay taxes are losing theirs because they can not get a job because these people will work under the table. Lets wake up

    Wow. Ronald, you could start by waking up yourself. We are not giving millions of homes to illegal immigrants, despite what some hate spewers are telling you on the right. You want to know what happened to jobs? Look to the widest wealth gap since 1929 and the overseas job tax credits defended by the GOP.

    Sadly, only people from the congressman’s district can vote for/against him. Were it not so, Boner would be long gone now.

    I am really tempted to flag this post for aggressive alliteration.

    Did you also see the criticism of the GOP by conservatives saying they were thought Boners proposals were “bad policy, bad economics”? Doesn’t look the Republicans can do any better in spite of all their nay saying.

    @Mychel Glyn:

    The correct quote is from Dubya:

    “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, uh, fool me twice……we won’t get fooled again.”

    Please try to keep up.

    Just wait until you see the hidden tax increases in Obamacare. When they kick in, the fiscal cliff will look like an anthill.

    We really NEED to rein in our spending. Increasing taxes won’t help as long as the politicos KEEP SPENDING!!!

    For someone supposedly “working” so hard to find “compromise” Boner certainly has a good tan….
