Borrowed from The Conservative Post - Thank you
I guess it was too much for conservatives to expect an entrenched Washington insider like Nancy Boehner to get the message that we conservatives, and the Tea Partiers, were sending them in the last election… that business as usual is no longer acceptable in DC.
Yesterday, Obama & Harry Reid, ate Boehners lunch again when the hapless GOP leadership passed another short-term CR, with puny spending cuts, that continues to fully fund Obamacare. Now, I don’t know why I ever trusted Nancy Boehner when he pledged to defund Obamacare… he’s had two opportunities to put up or shut up, and he’s failed twice. Even Schmucky Schumer sees Nancy Boehner as another all talk blowhard.
This from the Daily Caller: Schumer taunts Boehner again: Democrats saved you from the Tea Party
Top ranking Democrat Sen. Charles Schumer doubled down on his call for House Republican Speaker John Boehner to ditch the Tea Party after Democrats helped pass a short-term federal funding bill that would have failed without their support because of defections within the GOP.
“Speaker Boehner wouldn’t have been able to pass this short-term measure without Democratic votes, and he won’t be able to pass a long-term one without Democratic votes either,” Schumer said in a statement. “It’s time for him to abandon the Tea Party, and forge a bipartisan compromise.”
Fifty-four House Republicans, many of them Tea Party-backed freshman, voted against a stopgap measure Tuesday that would fund the government for three weeks while the parties negotiate a long-term deal. The proposal included $6 billion in cuts, but did not touch funding for the health care law and other programs that some in the caucus said needed to be included to get their approval.
Schumer said Mondaythat Boehner “should consider leaving the Tea Party behind” because they “are unwilling to accept anything short of the extreme cuts in the House budget, even if it risks a shutdown.”
Note to Schmucky…. there is no “Tea Party” and Boehner was never with the Tea Partiers in the first place, so he’s had no problems turning his back on us. In fact inside sources are claiming that Nancy Boehner is trashing Tea Partiers and Conservatives as “Extremists”.
Excuse me? When you hapless “moderates” cuts a measly $6 billion, when we have a $1,600,000,000,000 yearly deficit, and then have the gaul to come to us and tell us that we should be happy, and that’s the best you can do… how pathetic! If it’s “extreme” to simply demamnd the government live within their means, and stay the hell out of our lives and medical decision, then color me extreme I guess!
It is becoming increasingly clear that a gutless Nancy Boehner is NEVER going to take Obama on, and defund Obamacare in a meaningful way. He’ll take the easy route, and pass a defunding bill separate of any of the budget legislation, a bill he knows will go no where, and claim that he’s heard us… give us a break Nancy, we’re not a stupid as you think!
