Why it’s called the ‘Stupid Party’ – ‘Boehner ups the ante for a budget showdown in September’

Republicans – creating their own reality.

In 2011 :

‘House passes Budget Control Act after dramatic visit from Rep. Gabby Giffords’
“The bill had bipartisan support, drawing 174 Republican and 95 Democratic “yes” votes”.

“Some hawkish Republicans started the day uneasy about the cuts to defense spending. But after a personal visit with Speaker of the House John Boehner, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon voted in favor of the bill”.

******************************************

In 2013 :

‘Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told House Republicans on Thursday that he wants to push through a temporary spending measure that incorporates automatic cuts, upping the ante for a September budget showdown’.

“The president’s threat to shut down the government if we implement his sequester is not a defensible position,” Boehner said. “The American people won’t stand for it, and we’re not going to be swayed by it.”

“Our message will remain clear: until the president agrees to better cuts and reforms that help grow the economy and put us on path to a balanced budget, his sequester – the sequester he himself proposed, insisted on, and signed into law – stays in place,” the Speaker added’.
