NY Daily News Pulls No Punches on Front Page — Boehner "Stabbed NY & NJ in the Back"
The worst part of Boehner's behavior? Per the Daily News this was all a political game of payback against Cantor because he opposed the fiscal cliff bill.
The money — approved by the Senate last week — was supposed to come up for a House vote on Wednesday, the last full day of business by the outgoing Congress.
But sources told the Daily News that Boehner pulled the package from consideration as retaliation against Cantor for opposing the “fiscal cliff” compromise that the House passed on Tuesday.
