Boehner Won’t Give Specifics
Boeher and the house Republicans are grandstanding once again, pretending that they are insulted and that the president’s offer is not a serious starting position. At the same time they refuse to put forth specifics of their preferred cuts, revenue enhancements, or budget changes. They in fact want to take from medicare and other social safety net programs, but refuse to do it in the Open or admit it, instead they mumble about ‘entitlement reform’.
They want to make these deals in back rooms and not in front of the American Public because they represent very narrow special interests and they know it. You know that their ideas are intensely unpopular with the public because otherwise they would be leading this discussion since it’s the house’s key duty to Budget. They’ve failed at that for four years because they don’t want to deal with this president. Call on your congress person to deal in the open, do it today.
