Boehner to Obama: You created spending cut crisis, you fix it


LINK

quote:

House Speaker John Boehner had a simple message Wednesday for President Obama after he used the bully pulpit to blame Republicans for the "meat cleaver" of looming spending cuts: You created it, you fix it.

"Having first proposed and demanded the sequester, it would make sense that the president lead the effort to replace it," Boehner wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed.

The "sequester" is the Washington word for the $85 billion in 2013 spending cuts set to hit starting March 1, with more than $1 trillion in cuts on tap over the next decade. Boehner and Obama both agree that the federal budget needs that level of deficit reduction and more, but sharply disagree over how to achieve it. In the absence of any compromise, the set of indiscriminate cuts which would hit the military hardest are set to take hold in less than two weeks.

The president on Tuesday, surrounded by first responders who are among those who would see cutbacks, called on House Republicans to drop their resistance to tax increases and steer the country away from the budget "meat cleaver."

But Boehner reminded Obama that the automatic cut idea was originally proffered by the White House during the debt-ceiling talks of 2011. He said Congress "reluctantly accepted the president's demand" and claimed it's now up to Obama to find the escape hatch.

"So, as the president's outrage about the sequester grows in coming days, Republicans have a simple response: Mr. President, we agree that your sequester is bad policy. What spending are you willing to cut to replace it?" Boehner asked.

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer rejected what he described as "revisionist history." The White House acknowledges the "sequester" came from their office, but argues that Congress was on board at the time. The original plan was to tee up cuts so Draconian that Congress would be compelled to strike a deal to replace them -- Congress, though, failed to do so.

re: Boehner to Obama: You created spending cut crisis, you fix it


game set match.

:shiteatinggrin:



Obama is sipping his champagne aboard AF1 ordering people to bring him every little thing he wants on his way to his next teleprompted bull shite speech. Obama will say, 'they don't want to work with me, they want me to do all the work.' (as he does NOTHING but campaign,play golf with his loverboy and lie through his teeth)

Little secret for the uninitiated...

The president doesn't fund the government.

Of course I'm only saying this because I think Obama is the second coming of Jesus Christ.

The game is sick. Agreed. But even if the republicans play act like they aren't politically correct hacks as well...

The full blame goes to the one in charge. Obama. He is not leading he is playing partisan politics before thinking about our country first. The pubs can't win for losin. Obama is slick as a snake. Even Clinton knew to sit down like adults and fix things. Obama is not capable.

Harry Reid and the Senate budget committee.

Won't even allow a budget to come to the floor.

So now it's Harry Reid's fault? What happened to Obama's Fault™ ?

The fact of the matter is that the statement, "You created spending cut crisis, you fix it" is absurd. Obama can't fix it, he needs everyone to help fix it. Boehner knows this, so why the statement?

Did the bill become law on Boehner's signature?

Who wrote the bill?

Who handed it to Obama to sign?

The President is not a dictator, there is a balance of power which means responsibility is shared throughout the branches of government.

I sure hope you weren't one of the ones blaming Nancy Peolsi for the budget deficits of the last two years of Bush's term.

Does Clinton get credit for the budget surpluses of the 90s? Or does that go to Gingrich?

Because Obama has completely shirked both his role in bringing this about, and his duty to "fix it" by actually working with people, instead of telling them it's his way or frick them.

The house speaker blamed President Obama for the nearly $1.2 trillion spending cuts set to go into effect next month.

Harsh criticism he leveled at the president

Well, if Reid would allow the budgetary process to proceed, we'd eliminate the situation. The cuts could have been made two years ago, and spread out over the last two years.

I think you're missing the point. Obama insisted on having the sequester. If he made it with no intention of letting it happen -he wasn't acting in good faith.

In fact, Obamas pervious pledge to veto the cuts, placed side-by-side with his present doomsday rhetoric clearly shows he isn't acting in good faith. There is simply no way to negotiate with someone acting like that. It's like trying to negotiate with a schizophrenic.

And since he isn't going to act in good faith, or even rationally, it falls onto him. There is literally nothing Boehner can do with him.

It's like a kid throwing a temper tantrum. You don't try to ration with him. You're best bet is to simply ignore him. If you ask me, that is exactly what Boehner should do.

re: Boehner to Obama: You created spending cut crisis, you fix it


Why are you linking the FoxNews article reporting on this instead of the actual Wall Street Journal op-ed piece Mr. Boehner penned himself? Don't want to have to judge the thing for yourself?

here it is .. via wsj.com

quote:

With the debt limit set to be hit in a matter of hours, Republicans and Democrats in Congress reluctantly accepted the president's demand for the sequester, and a revised version of the Budget Control Act was passed on a bipartisan basis.

Ultimately, the super committee failed to find an agreement, despite Republicans offering a balanced mix of spending cuts and new revenue through tax reform. As a result, the president's sequester is now imminent.


where is this info in Fox's reporting?
