A "Grand Bargain" is the only hope the United States military has from being completely destroyed from within by its own government.
You talk again and again about how this is "Obama's Sequester", but you don't lift a finger to stop it.
As Speaker, you didn't even attempt to stop the 2011 cuts to the military of $487 Billion over ten years. Those were in addition to the $330 Billion cuts that began in 2009 (Rep "Buck" McKeon, the HASC Chairman, verified these numbers in an article he recently wrote). Then, you yourself negotitated and voted yes on the "formula" to make the military "pay for" 50% of all Sequestration cuts, despite it being only 17% of the budget, and you negotiated and allowed for Entitlements to be exempt from Sequestration!
Five months on, and the military is being decimated by Sequestration. The damage has already been deep and in some cases not reversible without years of healing.
The rumors are probably true Boehner, you cannot figure out which way to pee in the morning without asking Rep Eric Cantor to hold it for you. Why don't you simply resign and let him run for Speaker - you aren't doing your job anyway.
CAN’Tor would be no improvement; Steve King would be. Let’s get Boehner to resign—we could take up a collection to buy him a two liter bottle of his favorite whisky every day.
