Posted on 12/11/2013 1:05:25 PM PST by zeestephen
"They're using our members and they're using the American people for their own goals," an animated Boehner told reporters at the Capitol. "This is ridiculous.".....In remarks on the Senate floor praising the new budget framework, Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., suggested he planned to bring up an unemployment benefits bill and minimum wage increase to the floor in January.

Curiously, Boehner, who is basically on board with the Club for Growth's Amnesty plan, spoke at the national Christmas Tree lighting ceremony last night, where he was shouted down and jeered by dozens of illegal aliens who want Amnesty, just like Boehner and the Club Growth.
That Hispanic pandering worked out real well for you, didn't it, Mr. Boehner?
I wonder if this is connected.
Republican Study Committee Executive Director Paul Teller reportedly fired
Supporting amnesty and demanding real budget cuts at the same time is very contradictory.
What’s ridiculous is Boehner remaining Speaker.
This guy is my Congressman. I drive by his office in West Chester every day and give him the finger, whether he’s there or in DC. What a dork, drunk dork. Never has brought ONE earmark to his district in over 20 years.
Boehner is THE NUMBER ONE PROBLEM with the Republicans.
This is essentially what Boehner is saying. WHAT AN IDIOT. Call Boehner and tell him that if he's got internal disputes within the Republican party, RESOLVE THESE INTERNAL DISPUTES QUIETLY AND BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, NOT OUT IN THE OPEN!!!
BOEHNER'S DC OFFICE: 202-225-0600
“No staffer is above a member,” said one senior Republican aide familiar with the situation. “Paul was divulging private, member-level conversations and actively working against RSC strategies supported by House conservatives.”
Amnesty is a deal-breaker on any budget, whether in good times or bad. To extend amnesty is to give a blanket pardon to individuals who have not demonstrated they contribute in a positive way to the overall economic growth of the country, by not taking more in benefits than they make in contributions.
First rule of economics - if an enterprise is not earning enough to justify its existence by showing a profit, it is surely going to show a loss, and COLLAPSES the economy, in a domino effect that ripples outward into every other enterprise in the vicinity. Resources become badly allocated, and valuable assets are dispersed, accruing no benefit to the larger community. But as the failing enterprise is liquidated, the resources once again become available to the rest of the community, and the balance sheets again show an overall profitable expansion.
And Boehner isn't doing exactly that himself?
And when was the last time we saw "an animated Boehner" defending conservative values?
RE: “I wonder if this is connected.”
Looks like you’re right, Creek.
Politico says he got fired for “leaking.”
I think the CofC and the others think they can cut social spending now, reduce entitlements due years from now and legalize illegals to compete with American workers.
And to get Dems support give illegals the vote many years from now, around the same time the entitlement cuts start to apply.
They dont seem to care about what it does years from now with elections.
Liz Warren wants to EXPAND SS and Medicare now.
Vote the ‘Rat enablers OUT.
“They’re using our members and they’re using the American people for their own goals,” an animated Boehner told reporters”
Uh, hello Mr Pot, said the kettle.
Yep and my representative here in the Montgomery county Texas area (Kevin Brady) has got to go for voting to reinstall Boehner into speakership.
Senator John Cornyn, Rep. Kevin Brady....times up.
Hey, Boehner. We passed “slow the growth of government” decades ago. Conservatives “REDUCE THE SIZE OF GOVERNMENT”!
“They’re using our members and they’re using the American people for their own goals.”
OK. I’m confused. Was the weeper referring to the gop-e or conservative groups?
Like that phrase ‘rat enablers better than GOPe. Its spot on!
We need to get rid of Boehner, since he is not obviously not a conservative, and he will likely ram millions of illegals becoming citizens and tens of millions of their family members, too.
The mask is off.
B U C K
F O E H N E R !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lashes out? With what...his purse?
I.... Don’t believe I’ve ever seen Boehner animated. In fact, I think this is the first time I’ve even seen him DESCRIBED as animated.
Figures he’d find his mojo to fight the party’s base.
It is almost like the Regime is holding Boehner’s daughter hostage in some Rastafarian rape room. I just don’t understand the decisions these guys are making.
If there's a government shutdown now, all the gains Repubs have made because of Obamacare will disappear - poof!
As long as this agreement is not too bad, ie., no tax increases, modest spending reductions, etc., and it passes, there won't be a shutdown.
Then the Repubs will win in 2014, both the House and the Senate.
I say, let this agreement pass, defeat the Dems, then go to work with both majorities after 2014.
If the Repubs screw it up now, and get blamed for a shutdown, the Dems will end up controlling both the House and Senate.
No, it’s a $45 billion spending increase.
If it were neutral or even only a few millions increase it would be acceptable for the reasons you stated.
The only thing that is of the slightest interest to me is an immediate $1.2 trillion dollar spending cut.
Anything else, I don’t want to hear about, because it just aggravates me to no purpose.
I would not ever vote for anyone who supports any Federal spending in excess of revenues (currently about $2.2 trillion).
Are you out of your mind?
This "deal" increases spending by $45 billion immediately, and sets a precedent that BOTH parties believe that spending has to increase, year after year.
I’m done with the GOP. They are no better than Dems. At least the Dems lie to us with a straight face and make no bones about their wanting expansion of government.
The GOP lies to us with a wink and nod.
I hope they are destroyed in 2014 and 2016. More like Boehner, Cantor, et al and we’d probably be better off with Dems.
I’m usually in the minority on this thinking (I’m not a very compassionate man when it comes to blithering idiots that can affect my life):
I hope Boehner and his entire family suffer horrible deaths and rot in hell.
Sorry “turn the other cheek” Christians - evil is evil and needs to be destroyed at all cost.
Flame away, I’m a big boy.
Beltway GOPe consultant talking point! Most of us can focus on more than one thing at a time.
Republicans will face intense pressure over unemployment benefits
BY GREG SARGENT
December 11 at 12:24 pm
[snip] The imminent expiration of the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program for 1.3 million Americans is mostly being treated as a fait accompli in Washington... (Dems have created an interactive map showing how many people in each state stand to lose benefits.)... This strategy includes placing Op ed pieces by Democrats in papers that serve the districts of top Republicans, such as this one by Rep. Sander Levin in the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the largest paper in John Boehners home state. The game plan is granular: One Democrat points out to me that stats are available on how many would lose benefits on the county level, and that Dems are trying to push these numbers into the coverage, because it is tangible for people in local communities.

“They’re using our members and they’re using the American people for their own goals,” an animated Boehner told reporters
Should one be tempted to make improper use of the GOP’s members, expect an animated Boehner lashing.
I think he knows he’s gone come Election Day.... Bye !
It is almost like the Regime is holding Boehners daughter hostage in some Rastafarian rape room. I just dont understand the decisions these guys are making.
Seriously, I know that Alex Jones is a verboten subject ‘round here but he has a good theory that when people get into power they are blackmailed into having sex with children or something and that is taped so they can control them somehow by holding the footage over their heads or something....
Alex was blathering on about something like that today... and you know what that seems to explain why people who get power in Washington at a certain point get “married to” the corrupt power machine inside...
It is almost like they get “assimilated by the borg” so to speak, but the borg is the bureaucracy...
He certainly makes you think. I think he is spot on in some of his analysis but way off on other parts.
IF ANY HOUSE REPUBLICAN IS READING THIS PLEASE GET RID OF BOEHNER.
HIS IS THE HEAD OF THE PROBLEM WITH THE GOP
Nah .... there are many, many leashes from the GOP/RNC back to the Fortune 500. They've got Boehners stacked seven deep.
Ummmm, I dunno .... David Mamet, in his TV series The Unit, at some point injected a line about all sorts of skullduggery tracing back to "six families" who have "owned" the Republic since the beginning. Fantastic, but there's one more guy who believes the Old Yankee conspiracy theories, and he's one with a megaphone. (He used to be liberal, but in the last 10-12 years has crossed the political spectrum, and is now much less popular with H'wood "Sid Kibitz" types than formerly.)
