House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.).
"They're using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday.What is truly ridiculous is the $63 billion in additional spending that he isn't talking about. What's ridiculous is the fact that NONE of our elected officials seem to take seriously our debt and deficit, yet they expect the people to continue to elect them over and over. What's ridiculous is that we do.
John Boehner can suck it. Until Republicans start acting like Republicans I won't support any of them. Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans for Prosperity, and FreedomWorks are exactly right-this is a bad deal. America deserves better.
