Boehner rejects Obama's budget; DoD budget in political limbo

Apr 5, 2013 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.marinecorpstimes.com

Republican House Speaker John Boehner on Friday slammed President Barack Obama's coming 2014 budget plan for not cutting federal spending deeply enough while proposing more new revenues.

For the defense sector, the Ohio Republican's stance shows the Pentagon budget remains caught in an ideological struggle over domestic programs and tax rates.

Boehner's critical statement came after reports surfaced that the budget blueprint the Obama administration will send to Congress next week will propose Social Security and Medicare changes, including $400 million in savings from the former.

President Barack Obama returned to Washington on Monday after a three-day Florida golfing trip with time running out to find ways to avoid his own brainchild plan of $1 trillion in across-the-board cuts.

The looming sequester, which Obama thought up, despite him now labeling it a "really bad idea" is set to kick in on March 1
House Republicans twice passed legislation replacing the sequester with smarter cuts in other areas of government.

To Democrats,apparently, a woman is measured by her looks rather than her abilities.

Can you imagine the reaction in the media if anyone else -- President, Senator, Congressman, Governor, CEO, ANYONE -- made this comment?

Surely, a resignation would be demanded. But it's Obama. He's so cute.

none of these "cuts" we keep hearing about are CUTS. they are just less of an increase from the previous budget. so get down off your high horses already, libs. as your parents used to say, money does not grow on trees.

How about cutting hand outs to those who do not need them!
I stood behind a lady today at the gas station who purchased Yoo-Hoos, beef jerky, energy drinks, chips and candy for her 3 kids. She used her EBT card to pay for those items, then paid cash for her cigs and beer.
I had just filled our gas tank so while my son watched these kids get bags of treats I made him put back his candy bar because we are so strapped for cash!

FYI....Obama could've done something about it before it happened but he would rather take people's social security benefits, continue to give handouts to those who don't need it. With all of this going on he STILl wants to allow illegals in and give them handouts AND jobs.

Addressing the seemingly constant chatter about the orangey-tan color of his skin, House Minority Leader John Boehner told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Thursday that his eye-catching complexion is one hundred percent natural.

"I have never been in a tanning bed or used a tanning product," explained the ranking Republican. He said that his mother and four of his twelve siblings also have the sun-kissed glow.

The explanation comes as only the latest in a string of recent instances where Boehner has found himself playing defense against questions and jokes made about the color of his skin.

Shouldn't it be clear by now which side is not giving an inch? Can anyone still believe that Republicans are worried about America's long-term future, and not the next election?

Obama has compromised all he can. Some say it's already too much. If Republicans continue their refusal to meet him half way, I believe they will get most of the blame and lose more ground in the next congressional election. Were it not for the lives their greedy policies would harm, their traitorous intransigence would almost be worth it.

If only that tumor could be removed, without harming the healthy cells around it.

"traitorous intransigence" eh? sounds like something an ivory tower lib who never got his hands dirty would say. the libs love to talk about how callous the republicans are. yet they have no problem spending the country in to oblivion. saddling future generations with terrible debt. talk about traitorous!

Yeah, you're worried about future generations. What you should really be worried about is how to save your soul while still ignoring the needs of the poor.

Why doesn't Boehner simply tell us how many American citizens he wants killed and create a budget around that?
