Boehner resists budget deal as Tea Partier seeks his ouster
Source: CBS NEWS
Posted by Stephanie Condon

Democrats are saying that they've reached a compromise figure with Republicans on budget cuts, but GOP House Speaker John Boehner -- facing increasing pressure from the Tea Party -- says that's not true.


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today that Democrats and Republicans "have agreed upon a number on which to base our budget cuts," echoing remarks from Vice President Joe Biden Wednesday night. Both Democrats say the parties have agreed to cut a record $33 billion from the rest of this year's budget, which covers about six months. If Congress doesn't agree to a new spending bill by April 8, the federal government will shut down.


Boehner told reporters today, however, that lawmakers are working to come to an agreement on cuts but have not agreed to stop at $33 billion. "There is no agreement on numbers and nothing will be agreed to until everything is primary challenge against the speaker.

2. Looks Like They're Going To Do The Heavy Lifting For Us
"Meckler said "you're going to see massive amounts" of primary challenges against Republican lawmakers, including Boehner, next year if Republicans go along with the plan to cut $33 billion."

4. Never a cut in old Boner's bullshit blitz. 100% Bullshit 24/7!
The Big Boner will cry like an orange colored bawl baby, if Obama don't send him a handsome sugar tit ASAP, if not sooner. Sniveling Mitch and Bawl Baby Boner and the tea-plotters will be waving and weeping those crocodile tears as long as there's a sucker around to be snookered, by any part of their greed based political "logic."(BULLSHIT)

It hasn't been 6 months since Boner and Mitch wept the blues until Obama signed their trillion dollar tax cut for the wealthy bill. And already those two bandits have forgotten why the country IS so far in debt.

8. Boner's a dick. He said Dems are rooting for a .gov shutdown. I've NEVER
seen a single Democrat cheering for a .gov shutdown. I have, however, seen many MANY Regressive and TEA Party calls to "shut that fucker down!"

Hey Boner, SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU FUCKING DICK.
