Boehner ‘Flabbergasted’ by White House


john-boehnerIf the White House thinks it’s going to get $1.6 trillion in tax increases, $400 billion worth of unspecified tax cuts, and who knows what other nonstimulus spending past John Boehner, it’s got another thing coming. The House Speaker was just so “flabbergasted” that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner would even suggest such a plan that he told him, “You can’t be serious.”

Boehner vented his frustrations over “this nonsense” to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. Geithner responded calmly to Boehner’s annoyance, telling Wallace that GOP leaders “are in a tough position now. They are trying to figure out where they go next. We might need to give them a little time to figure out where they go next.” Read more at The Hill.

  1. Pres. Obama is a Socialist and he wants to impose socialism on the country
    Which is worse, the “Fiscal Cliff” or the ruins of socialism?
    Socialism defeated the USSR; it has bankrupted Greece, Italy, Spain, etc.
    I’ll take the consequences of the “Fiscal Cliff” over the consequences of socialism.

  2. Mr. Boehner shoukld use NoBamas words and say that the PRESIDENT IS HOLDING THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS HOSTAGE so he can give to his people.

  3. Pres. Obama ran on taxing the rich. What kind of politician is Mr. Boehner if he thinks the President was just saying it to get re-elected? If Mr. Boehner is “flabbergasted that the President is actually keeping a campaign promise, it indicates how much respect Mr. Boehner has for the citizens of this country.

  4. We are already living here in a socialist 3rd world country, by all defenitions !!

    and see this past week’s Haftorah about what is said to Edom !!
