John Boehner Blames Everyone Else But Ted Cruz, Teahadists for GOP Implosion


House Speaker John Boehner issued a short press release about the House Republican implosion after the Teahadists shutdown the government in order to defund Obamacare, plus tried to breach the debt ceiling. He blamed everyone on the Democratic side instead of manning up and admitting they bungled this from start to finish. Nowhere did the Ted Cruz lapdog ever admit the government shutdown was a bad idea, since so many Americans were caught in the crosshairs.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement regarding the bipartisan Senate agreement to reopen the federal government and avoid a national default:

“The House has fought with everything it has to convince the president of the United States to engage in bipartisan negotiations aimed at addressing our country’s debt and providing fairness for the American people under ObamaCare.  That fight will continue.  But blocking the bipartisan agreement reached today by the members of the Senate will not be a tactic for us.  In addition to the risk of default, doing so would open the door for the Democratic majority in Washington to raise taxes again on the American people and undo the spending caps in the 2011 Budget Control Act without replacing them with better spending cuts.  With our nation’s economy still struggling under years of the president’s policies, raising taxes is not a viable option. Our drive to stop the train wreck that is the president’s health care law will continue.  We will rely on aggressive oversight that highlights the law’s massive flaws and smart, targeted strikes that split the legislative coalition the president has relied upon to force his health care law on the American people.”
