(Politico)   Boehner says no deficit deal between the election and January, doesn't want "a lot of retiring and defeated members voting on big bills". In other news, seniors don't need to attend class because they'll leave in June, so what's the point, right?   (politico.com ) divider line

I really wish I was a Republican so I could just flat out refuse to do my f*cking job.

But here I am, working like a sucker and earning my money.

Because people who don't have the Norquist of Damocles hanging over their heads might vote their conscience instead of party lines?

If they lose control of the House for the next term I suspect his opinion will change.

That is, assuming in such a situation his tears haven't already flooded the earth and killed us all.

Fark you Bohner. If sequestration hits there are going to be massive layoffs in multiple industries that will ripple through the whole economy. Do your damn job so the private sector can actually plan for the future.

Republicans attack Democrats for not doing enough to get budgets done but then they shutdown when they try to do anything about it.

Really the GOP is just screwing everything up on purpose, I wish everyone would realize this.

It's not like they were doing their jobs during any other part of the term.

Days in session for the last 3 months:

August: 4
September: 11
October: 2

Perhaps you should have done something about it before the elections... oh right, it's too difficult to pass big bills before elections too... useless f*ckers...

The only way Boehner can repair his legacy at this stage would be a highly apologetic suicide note.

He's still going to be speaker? the Republicans aren't going to replace him with something more useful, like a rock?

So you are completely ignorant to the fact Reid said as much earlier this year when he stated he didn't need to pass a swayed budget? Please tell me again how it is republicans and nit liberals passing on their obligations. The house has passed multiple bills and budgets that Reid refuses to even send to committee. Maybe you should stop throwing rocks in that house of yours.


I'm sure you can give us multiple examples of these bills, right?

Boehner's saying that the only thing he'll bring to the floor is some piecemeal, kick-the-can BS deal that doesn't really fix anything, which is the exact same position he's had the entire time.

Bloody William: The Stealth Hippopotamus: I see his point. We are in a representative republic and the people have said that these people no longer represent them. Maybe they can use this time to find other jobs and clear out their desks.

Yeah. Let's spend a quarter of the year without duly elected representation.


We really need to amend the Constitution to reflect the 21st Century's level of transportation and communication. It doesn't take four weeks to get to D.C. by horse any more.

Bag of Hammers: Farking traitors, every last one of them


Seriously. These people are pursuing a course of action that will lead this nation into a recession. And they're doing it intentionally and gleefully.

Fark them.

In addition to being out of session until the election, now they wont be doing anything after also? I wish they would pro-rate their pay at least.

Why does he still get to pull a paycheck on the taxpayer's dime, again? All he ever seems to do is drink, cry, and plan how he is going to refuse to do his job.

We WANT defeated congresscritters to vote on bills, because they will be immune to lobbyist opinion. Perhaps this is what Boner fears.

then I guess people who leave their job don't need to give 2 week. I mean, they are leaving, so what's the point of showing up?
