Boehner is looking to cash in like Newt Gingrich did after he was booted from the position as House Speaker after the Federal Shutdown in 1996.

Slick move. It's a shameless move to put his well being before those of the Americans he serves in Congress, but it's a save your own arse kind of proposal.

He'll cash in on book deals, and speaking engagements and rake in millions at the expense of Soldiers on the front lines, and Troops away from their families going unpaid while he collects his pension and speaking fees.

Being another disgraced Republican speaker doesn't matter to him in the end, because he's going to get paid.

More greasy doings.

If the Mouse Republicans have a number of things
they want to pass let them put them in an omnibus
bill and sent it to the Senate for passage.

But let's have a straight up and down vote on
the debt limit extension.

I dare these chicken-azzed Republicans to produce
a clean bill.
They just haven't got the guts and they're hiding
behind the troops.

Cowardly scumsuckers.

ReTHUGlicans need to be forced to be aware that the ACA is not in any way linked with any continuing budget or spending resolution, and that nothing that includes both will ever be passed or signed.

EVER.

They cannot be allowed to hold the nation and its economy hostage to their ideological insanity.

Ohio never really felt the bad economy because the economy in Ohio has been one of the worst in the nation for some time. The cost of living has always outpaced the wages in Ohio. According to the government in Ohio the best economy booster was trying to turn Ohio into a tourist trap, instead of bringing in sustainable jobs.

No pookie, the only one that said that was Obama, hence he hasn't had the congressional leaders to the White House to try and work out differences. Obama will talk to Putin, to the Iranian leader, but not republicans. It's easy to see as usual, he will set back and take the credit when possible and blame the republicans when he can't. He is weak and ineffective.

That's it LeDouchey. Just repeat the GOP daily bullshit rhetoric.
No need to have a real opinion, one has been laid out for you, just like your mom lays out your clothes for school
