Boehner Gives Tea Partyers Tongue Lashing


House Speaker John Boehner admonished Republicans and tea party conservatives alike to “fall in line” and back his plan for legislation that would at once ease the debt crisis and hopefully appease Democrats.

  1. Boehner’s Democrat Lite debt plan is a joke. It’s like pulling the living room drapes and pretending you are on vacation somewhere else. Cutting 1% off a 7% baseline increase is no cut. The Dems did this a couple of decades ago by claiming that raising taxes only 4% instead of the desired 8% was a tax cut. A lot of the people aren’t stupid enough to believe their spin, in particular, the Tea Party, who wants legitimate spending cuts. GOP legislators who are afraid of getting the blame for a government shutdown aren’t confident their plan will work. These people care more about keeping their job than doing the right thing for the country. Thing is, they may still find themselves out of a job if the economy doesn’t improve.
