Boehner rejects four week government funding bill
Source: CNN

Washington (CNN) - House Speaker John Boehner rejected a Democratic proposal to extend government funding for four weeks instead of the two-week bill the House is voting on Tuesday afternoon.

"If there had been a conversation about this ten days ago or two days ago we might have something to talk about," Boehner said.

<...>

Many Senate Democrats have said they would prefer a 30-day extension of government funding because it would give them more time to negotiate a spending measure that would last for the remaining seven months of the fiscal year.

Boehner dismissed a question from CNN asking if the House GOP could accept changes by the Senate, quipping, "If ands and buts were candy and nuts, every day would be Christmas."

11. Boehner should be in jail -- and certainly not in Congress ... Congress by crooks and corrupters!!
Government corruption will only become more widespread --

this is nothing different from having government infiltrated by

organized crime -- it's the same thing!!

When will enough Americans begin to figure this out???

12. That's funny the MSM has been claiming that the GOP really doesn't want a gov shutdown.
Edited on Tue Mar-01-11 01:03 PM by toddwv
Maybe the MSM just doesn't think that the Republicans would be that stupid in an economy like this one. Maybe it's NOT because the MSM tries to let the Republicans off the hook whenever possible.

So Boener responds with a childlike rhyme and the stock market plummets 120 points in one day.

At some point you'd think that even corporations would go "WTF?!" over their behavior.

13. I hope more and more federal employees and those using fed govt services
are paying attention and realize that Republicans are never interested in doing what is right.

14. K&R- There is another post containing a line about how the republicans
learned from Newt Gingrich how "being a jerk" could hurt their party, after Newt's shutdown of the federal government in 1995 caused the GOP plenty in the next election.

Boehner was working for Newt Gingrich at that time. Think he learned anything?

The last time the GOP did this, they gave the Democrats a majority in Congress...

Boehner must start drinking pretty early in the morning these days to come up with shit like this.
