Yeah, Boehner's too busy.. uh.. 'breathing' to do anything else.

When is he not?

Did he forget his freshman year constitutional law class?

I think someone needs to tell Boehner that bills expire at the end of a session.

You're assuming anyone in Congress that has Boehner's ear actually understands how bills work

Given the GOP's twitter response to the platinum coin, I'm not actually sure you need that slashie caveat.

So what has the House done so far this week?

Monday:  Renamed a NASA facility after N. Armstrong (HR 667)
Tuesday:  Established a new House run math/science competition for schools (HRes 77)

That's it...
 
2013-02-27 10:49:21 AM  
House Speaker John Boehner, an Ohio Republican, has said repeatedly that he would not put a bill on the floor of the House until the Senate acts first, pointing to two measures the House approved to avoid the sequester last year. (Those bills expired when the new Congress began in January.)

Republicans are morons.
 
2013-02-27 10:49:25 AM  
Oh, sure, like rape's gonna re-define itself!
 
2013-02-27 10:50:24 AM  
at this point the house republicans would probably be outraged if they had to actually do something

Yep.  Alternative to sequester bills passed by Bohener for this congress: ZERO!

In fact unlike the senate the even have none planned to vote on.

There have been times when I've been slightly sorry for Boehner for the astounding level of indiocy he has to deal with amongst his membership.

This is not one of them.

Well, there's not much time in the day left after they beg for money from constituents for 4 hours a day.You know, so they can be re-elected and then get some real work done!

huh? Are you saying that even the Senate doesn't have any they plan on voting on? Because there are two that they have ready to vote on today (one republican: give Obama the power to dictate who gets what funding in the budget....which is probably grossly unconstitutional. and one democratic: half tax increases via loophole closing/corporate welfare shuttering and cuts to defense/SS/Medicaid)
 
2013-02-27 10:57:03 AM  
Well, that was a nicely empty version of the talking points from both sides.

If that doesn't prompt action to avoid sequestration nothing will.

Blaming Obama for not having a plan to avoid the sequester?

He had one, it was the supercommitee.....but the Norquisters Boener sent in there refused to give an inch.

So I guess you can fairly say Obama failed to anticipate that Rebublicans would come to the bargaining table without any intention of bargaining.....where even Rick Romero saw that one coming....

That Boehner can stand there and say stuff like this with a straight face is amazing...

The GOP have no shame what-so-ever.

Translation: we want to cut the budget, our constituents want to cut the budget, our constituents don't want to cut anything they use or defense from the budget, we want dems to propose cuts so we can blame it on them

Boehner sent two budgets that shifted the cuts to the military to domestic programs as well as had a tax cut or two in there as well.

//Ok, I might have made up that last tax cut, but everything has a tax cut attached to it.

It is fairly clear that you will not be allowed to get out of this self-created crisis without raising taxes GOP, so man the fark up and do what is right for the country for a change.  You can still blame fartbama for everything you did later.

This is what happens when you're the party that wants to cut government spending. You're stuck. Nobody wants you to cut something they benefit from. What the hell is left?

Your supporters want you to cut something, but they don't want you to cut any specific thing. Whatever you do is going to piss them off. Good luck morons!
