|Speaker Boehner on Cutting Spending: “The Status Quo Is Unacceptable, and That’s All Washington Democrats Are Offering”|
Washington (Mar 25) House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement regarding Washington Democrats’ continued failure to offer a credible, long-term plan to cut spending and keep the government running:
“It has now been 34 days since the House passed H.R. 1 to keep the government running through September and make the spending cuts economists say are needed to end the uncertainty facing job creators. At no point in the 34 days since the House acted have the Democrats who run the Senate and the White House put forward a credible, long-term plan to resolve their budget mess. Instead, Washington Democrats continue to downplay the severity of their budget mess, and the uncertainty it’s causing job creators in America.
