Regarding the Grand Theft Bailout: “Boehner Calls Bill A “crap Sandwich” — But He’ll Vote For It.”
Way to stick to your guns, John; you were the one monkey-wrenching this thing on Thursday and Friday:
House Republican Leader John Boehner, of West Chester in Butler County, has emerged as the main deal breaker in talks surrounding the proposed $700 billion bailout of the financial markets.
Boehner was one of 14 congressional and administration officials to take part in a meeting at the White House on Thursday, after which the deal that some lawmakers had said going into the closed-door session was nearly done fell apart.
Both Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., in remarks made after the meeting, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in comments made Friday morning, referred to “House Republicans” as the culprit for breaking up the deal.
As the leader of the House Republicans, they are talking about Boehner.
What a difference a day made, huh? And what a miserable situation that we actually have to hope that House Republicans will buck Boehner and do the right thing by derailing this legislative freight train, because the Democratic majority in Congress has made it clear that it will not behave in a fiscally-responsible manner. Talk about role reversals.
Jesus. Fucking. CHRIST.
