Embarrassing: Senate Democrats Fail to Pass a Single Sequester Replacement Bill in 15 Months
Posted by Speaker Boehner Press Office February 28, 2013 Press Release
WASHINGTON, DC House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement after the Democratic-controlled Senate failed to pass legislation replacing President Obamas sequester:
Its embarrassing that after 15 months Senate Democrats still havent passed a single sequester replacement bill. The American people deserve better. Republicans in the House passed legislation almost a year ago in May, and again in December, to avert the presidents sequester and help put us on a path to a balanced budget. Now that todays political stunt to raise taxes has failed, its time for the president and Senate Democrats to do the hard work that is necessary to pass a bill in the Senate so we can begin to resolve this issue.
It’s only “embarrassing” when someone calls them out on it. Who’s doing the calling out besides the Squeaker of the House?
Why aren't there RNC talking points on this?
Obama says that dont matter, the GOP needs to ‘compromise’ again and give into his demands
Whose fault is that? (a) The Republicans. (b) Bush. (c) Israel. (d) All of the above.
I want to know who loaned Boner half a testicle?!?!
Probably Ann. Just looking at her she has 4.
