Boehner spokesman: ‘Reid should talk less and legislate more’

The war of words has heated up on Capitol Hill as the fiscal cliff approaches.
A spokesman for House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) has responded to Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid’s charge Thursday morning that Boehner is running a “dictatorship” in the House.
“Senator Reid should talk less and legislate more,” said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel. “The House has already passed legislation to avoid the entire fiscal cliff. Senate Democrats have not.”
The House in August passed a bill extending tax breaks for Americans at all income levels — Democrats want to extend those rates only for the middle class. In May, the House passed a bill that would avert part of automatic spending cuts set to hit the military next month — the other half of the fiscal cliff — by shifting those cuts onto domestic programs.

Go Harry! Actually, I don't think Boehner can control his own party.

8. They know the MSM will run with this statement and ignore the facts.

 

The Republicans are generally 100% safe in projecting, hypocrisy and lies with the corporate owned media backing their plays. No Dem rebuttal will gain traction.

6. Let's take a look at that old Constiution, shall we?

Article 1, Section. 7. All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

7. Boehner's

 

representative needs to shutup until his Boss puts the Senate's Bill up for a vote. The Senate already gave them a Bill. We need a new House. Boehner is a Dictator. He only puts up his Bills.

11. Boehner's spokesman said? Get back to work you lazy speaker who can't even SPEAK for himself!

I wish we could impeach that horrid lazy Boehner!
I can't understand why the heck he is even 'in politics'

All Boehner serves to America and Americans, is a line of BS through his spokesman. He should be forced to stand in front of the press and answer many questions.

13. What a jackass? And he once called himself the most responsible man in washington?

Yeah right. He is the most inept speaker of the house this country has ever had. It is time for his own R party to Julius Caesar him. -- next week -- a new speaker. Get off the floor Mr. Boehner you are taking up too much space.
