House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said he didn't know what effect sequestration would have on the economy, during an interview that aired on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.
"I don't know whether it's gonna hurt the economy or not," Boehner said. "I don't think anyone quite understands how the sequester's really gonna work."
Boehner pointed to instances where he felt the White House may have exaggerated the impact of the spending cuts, saying, "There are a lot of questions about how the White House is handling the communications on this."
Well, if you look at the fact that they claimed all these air traffic controllers are going to be laid off and then if was found out they really didn't have to. And then when Secretary of Education went out and claimed that all these teachers in one county in West Virginia were being laid off as a result of the sequester, found out that wasn't quite true. And then they release thousands of detainees down in Arizona before the sequester even takes effect. There are a lot of questions about how the White House is handling the communications on this.
But Boehner maintained that he too is worried. "I am concerned about its impact on our economy and its impact on our military."

Bonehead Boehner has no clue about the US economy.
The Republicans are responsible for the economy from here on out.
