"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.
