Boehner Says Obama's Plan to Go Around Congress Leads to a "Brick Wall"
ABC ^ | 1/28/14 | Jeff Zeleny

Posted on 01/28/2014 6:42:13 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

House Speaker John Boehner today dismissed President Obama’s idea to increase minimum wage to federal contract workers, declaring: “It will effect absolutely no one.”

An early look at the GOP’s response to the president’s plan to use more executive actions to bypass Congress was met by this blunt statement from Boehner, R-Ohio, over breakfast with network anchors and correspondents this morning .

The speaker said the president ignites the Congress and Constitution at his own political peril if he hopes to go it alone. “If he tries to ignore this, he’s going to run into a brick wall,” Boehner said.  “We have a Constitution. We’re not going to sit here and let the president trample all over us.”

He says what he needs to his party to keep his job.

Then he sells out at the critical junctures.

No one gives a smelly Obama about bonehead says. The only difference between his lies and the Obamadork’s lies is that Obama is (perhaps) sober.

IMHO, the STATE OF THE OBAMANATION IRON CURTAIN SPEECH tonight will include the following:

* An increase in Federal Wage Control regulation of increased redistribution of taxpayer wealth to the least skilled workers under Obamanation minimum wage control.

* Approval of the XL Pipeline if the evil Republicans will approve of, for an unspecified time, unlimited redistribution of taxpayer wealth as authorized by US President Valerie Jarrett.

* An increase in the total number of illegal alien invaders from Mexico that will receive an increased redistribution of taxpayer wealth and full voting rights.

* An increase in the redistribution of taxpayer wealth given away to the least qualified high school student loan candidates.

* An increase in the redistribution of taxpayer wealth to fund Republican-caused cost overruns to the following essential Obamanation Iron Curtain Programs:
****Obamacare re-education camp style advertising to the Obama-Youth;
****IRS Harassment of the evil Republican enemies of Obamanation;
****NSA spy on your neighbor;
****Benghazi Cover Up hush money to victim witnesses;
****purchase of teleprompters for all Democrat 2014 Federal Candidates;
****purchase of hollow point small arms ammunition for non-military Federal Bureaus;
****and increased manufacturing of Obamanation Barrycades.

* An increase in the redistribution of taxpayer wealth to pay for the cost of the Air Force One trips required after completion of this State of the Obamanation Iron Curtain Speech.

BTW, don’t be an evil Republican and oppose the inevitable Obamanation Iron Curtain, MOVE FORWARD!

It has worked for RINO Boehner, and it can work for you!

"We’re not going to sit here and let the president trample all over us."

Easy to say.

There have been plenty of opportunities lost to provide some action.

“It will effect absolutely no one.”

Unless Boehner said that in writing, the person who took the quote needs to go back and repeat high school English.

These are the people who tell us that bloggers aren't qualified to report and comment on the news.

If Obama was serious about wanting the wages to increase he would secure the borders and triple deportations.

Boehner is a lying sack of crap who says anything his handlers tell him to.
Then he does the opposite in the back room, or just says something
to appease then allows time to let the public forget his promises.

FIRE BOEHNER NOW!

“It will effect absolutely no one.”

But it does, Mr. Speaker! It gives Obama points. It gives the MSM another opportunity to bash the Republicans.

It doesn't matter than probably no one working for government contracters makes only minimum wages.

It effects the GOP because it is another loss in the PR war, Mr. Speaker.

Boehner's brick wall isn't strong enough to stop a anthropomorphic giant glass pitcher, much less a committed Marxist.

Boehner is dead right about this one. Obama has fallen from “stemming the rise of the oceans” to Tweeting pictures of his pen. Pride cometh before the fall. We have seen the pride, we are now seeing the fall.

"I presume these journalists meant to use the word “affect”."

After 50 years of editing (technical) reports, I have finally fallen on a simple rule for differentiating between "effect" and "affect": Never use the word "affect". Because of this simple rule, I have been right far more times than I have been wrong.

Maybe the journalists follow the same rule.

Obama may have a pen - but so does Congress if they ever grew a set of testicles. And they should use THEIR pen - to draft articles of impeachement for after the mid-terms.

It would be an improvement for them to sit there and let the president trample all over them. It's an improvement over all of the kneeling and bending over they have done so far. Heck, relatively speaking, sitting is almost standing compared to their current position.
